Using Contribute with a website that has both secure and non-secure pages (http/https)

If you create a connection to a website using the Connection Wizard with a URL that looks like http://www.mysite.com and you browse to secure page like https://mysite.com/ you’ll notice you’ve lost the connection to the site. This issue is easily resolved by adding an alias for https://mysite.com in the Web Address tab while Administering the site.

  1. Connect to the site via normal http
  2. Administer the site
  3. Select the Web Server category on the left side of the dialog box, and click the "Web Address" tab
  4. Provide the site alias https://mysite.com
  5. Click "Close" to exit the Administer Website dialog box and save your changes.
