Hey chaps,

So, I've installed an SSL for a subsite run from SilverStripe... All good. Now, the problem I have is with getting the site to work under SSL. It seems, running the site with the HTTPS protocol prevents the .htaccess file from redirecting the user to sapphire/main.php, so I end up seeing an Internal Server Error, instead of what SS would otherwise serve me.

Question, then; do I have to add some kind of SSL specific .htaccess file, or am I barking up the wrong tree?

Thanks loads,

Hi Lee,

Never had an issue witht he default .htaccess file using SSL sites, done it many times never had a problem. With plesk I set the http & https to share the same folder and everything just works.
