SSL and Network Solutions

Milton Perrin

My site is, everything works well, except I can't get SSL to work correctly. It's hosted by Network Solutions. I know I know but it's a pain to move everything.

If I uncomment the top section of the .htacess file, I get a too many loopbacks error.

I emailed Net Sol tech support and they said their SSLs are on a proxy server, so I should substitute this for the RewriteCond, so I did

RewriteCond %{HTTP:X-Forwarded-Proto} =http

There's actually two RewriteCond lines in the commented out section of the .htaccess file

# <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
# RewriteEngine On
# RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} /admin/
# RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} 80
# RewriteRule ^ https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [L,R=301]
# </IfModule>

I didn't know which one the support person was referring to so I tried different versions, same result.

The good news: I get a secure connection. The bad news: No images, css, nothing but plain text links. This is over my capabilities ... any ideas?
