Applying SSL to Security/Data Assist Pages

Applying SSL to Security/Data Assist Pages

We have created a secured login to Admin pages for our client who is hosting with GoDaddy and has an SSL also with GoDaddy. I'm curious to know how to apply the SSL to all pages relevant in the Admin area as well as the security pages?

Any assistance would be extremely appreciated!

Im assuming its as easy just to use "absolute" URLs and use www.........

absolute URLS would be the full URL of any given page:
such as index.php

a relative path to the above (in coding on your website) would be: index.php (or ../index/php or ../../index.php (depending the folder depth where you are)

so any secured pages would need to be admin.php

if im also right i beleive in theory even if you dont have a secured certificate if you still use HTTPS:// in any page reference it would still have some kind of level of secruity on shared hostings.

absolute URLS Can work.

another method would be to use an htaccess file and mod rewrite:

or you could use the following php code at line 1 of the pages that should be access using ssl:

<?php if((!(isset($_SERVER['HTTPS']))) || ($_SERVER['HTTPS'] == "") || ($_SERVER['HTTPS'] == "off"))header("Location: https://" $_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'] . $_SERVER['PHP_SELF']); ?>
