Congrats on your certificate. :)

99.9% of pages on the site don't need to be secure. It's only an issue with logging in and passwords. Would it be a lot of trouble to make http links, except for the login page, which would be https?

Yes. I'd have to dig into the mediawiki php files to change just those links, and undo my redirect. I realize only the password portion needs to be protected, but it's easier just to protect the whole area.

You could just use Mod_Rewrite to redirect access to the login pages to use SSL. Much less work.
“However,” said Dumbledore, speaking very slowly and clearly so that none of them could miss a word, “you will find that I will only truly have left this school when none here are loyal to me.”

Off the top of my head, test it and check the docs before trusting me:

Code: Select all

RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT}  80
RewriteRule .*/clump/index\.php\?title=Special:Userlogin\* https://www.noivad.net/clump/index.php?title=Special:Userlogin* [R,L,NC]
