not for the server, but for web pages.

eg. should all internal links ( images ) be relative or absolute and if absolute, should use https instead of http.

what about external stuff, like jquery, ui, analytics .. etc

Is there a guide that you know of ?

Why not just use // instead no http:// or https:// just //

like this

//2.s3.envato.com/files/71584665/abhimanyusharma003.png

It will auto detect if source is http or https

^ if you don’t need to support IE6

If you use https all resources have must have a secure connection too to get a green lock (like in chrome):

If just one used source (e.g. image) is used over a normal connection you’ll get

To display your company next to the lock – like paypal

you need a different (and more expensive) license certificate

Cheers, yep we have el cheapo, i didnt or couldnt justify evo ssl. Just i am getting ff warnings, when we open page and after i add exception, and allow url, the css and js isnt loading, but realised these are all set as http i will go thru and change them all and see what happens, it kinda perplexes me as to how to then handle external resources …

All external resources must be retrieved via https as well to avoid the mixed content warnings. Using // is a good idea for things like Google fonts, Jquery etc. that are hosted on CDN as they’ll usually have a https version. I’ve setup quite a lot of https sites so if you get stuck just send me a message and I’ll help you out :)

Had similar issue with my cheap ssl, the docs for loading the cert into plesk contained the wrong intermediary cert. A quick email to support and they sent through the correct link with better instructions.
