To secure login details from end users , I need to run my login page on SSL encryption.
Is it possible and if Yes how?

Even I had same problem. In my case I have created XOOPS_SURL variable in mainfile.php.

But login works fine but register.php, edituser.php shows errors "Errors None" when you perform registration or edit account operation. If I take out HTTPS and replace with HTTP it works fine.

My configuration

Linux, Apache 1.3*, Php 5.0.3, XOOPS 2.0.9.2..

any core developer can help me. I have more details where it fails during registration process and edit account using SSL.

Thanks

// In mainfile.php
// change this line
define('XOOPS_URL''https: //www.example.org');

// to the following
$port $HTTP_SERVER_VARS['SERVER_PORT'];
if(
$port == "443"){
  
define('XOOPS_URL''https: //www.example.org');
} else {
  
define('XOOPS_URL''http: //www.example.org');
}


Worked for me.

To avoid problems with internal links/references to the site (like to image files), there should be no space in the URL definitions within mainfile.php, i.e. no space between the "https:" (or "http:") part and the "//www.example.org" part.

== so it should look like this:

$port = $HTTP_SERVER_VARS['SERVER_PORT'];
if($port == "443"){
define('XOOPS_URL', 'https://www.example.org');
} else {
define('XOOPS_URL', 'http://www.example.org');
}

== instead of the original above, which is:

$port = $HTTP_SERVER_VARS['SERVER_PORT'];
if($port == "443"){
define('XOOPS_URL', 'https: //www.example.org');
} else {
define('XOOPS_URL', 'http: //www.example.org');
}

or
define ('XOOPS_URL'$_SERVER['SERVER_PROTOCOL'].'://www.example.org');


If you are going to put the same protocol as is being used by the request, anyway.

How about a way to just have the post info in ssl? Or do I have to create a login page and redirect so only the login is in ssl?

$_SERVER['SERVER_PROTOCOL'].'://www.example.org' yields HTTP/1.1://www.example.org

Not quite usefull.
