I recently started receiving a warning when logging into my OCS and OJS sites telling me that I had an insecure connection. Is there a place in the code to secure the connection as I go from the home page to the login page?
I hope this is the right place to post this.
Thanks for your advice on this!
This is mostly a web server configuration issue. If you have an SSL certificate, you should be able to connect to your site using
https:// in the URL instead of
http://; if not, you might need to purchase a certificate and set it up with your web server. Once that’s done, OJS/OCS will respond to requests either way without issue; there are a couple of relevant settings in
config.inc.php e.g. to redirect to a secure site upon login.
