SSL connection for forms only?

Postby drgl » Fri Nov 02, 2012 12:06 pm

We run forums on our site and for some reason the PCI scans we must run (as we take card data) are now failing on the phpbb3 login pages etc. I did some searching & found this page http://phpbbacademy.com/community/viewtopic.php?f=98&t=12698 which detailed how to get the SSL to work on login, registration etc only. It all worked but then if I clicked any of the RSS feeds or sitemap link I got a 404 error. Is there any way to secure all the forms on phpbb3 and have the forum work correctly?? The only other option I can see would be to move the forums to a sub domian but I really do not want to do that as the pages are all indexed etc. Thanks for any help.

I got this to work. I followed the guide in the thread I linked to & just reset everything to do with RSS & sitemaps back to default. Now works like a dream :) Hopefully the PCI scan will pass now as the login is all SSL.
