HTTPS / SSL - Will SIMACARS have problems?

This is a response from USER: Sophie I managed to find on the forum... having to do with getting VAM to point to HTTPS instead of HTTP.

Hello Thomas


I assume you have changed your website from http to https or use SSL encryption on your website.

If that's true please change following ....

vam_header.php

vam_index_header.php

Search all entries in the HEAD AERA with http and change them to https

I'm getting closer to moving my VAM from a subdomain to its dedicated domain which has an SSL already in place.  Even if using the response above and the edits to the two (2) files...

QUESTION:  After creating a NEW VIRTUAL AIRLINE link in SIMACARS... having http://HTTPS://www.blahblah.com...  will SIMACARS be able to connect to a HTTPS:?

Thanks,

Keith

Yes, without a doubt. We are using SSL. Just correct the script locations in vam_index_header.php and vam_header.php. IIRC one link leads to bootstrapcdn.com and the other to datatables.net. If you don't correct them you will get a certificate warning even if you are using a valid certificate.

For SIMAcars you don't need to change much, just create a new VA profile with HTTPS instead of HTTP (redirections will not work!).

So just in case, I only told half the truth. Looks like it depends on the server configuration whether HTTPS works. One possible solution for a problem is found here:
