HTTPS site with href links to HTTP site
« on: December 21, 2018, 09:45:24 AM »

come across a bit of a problem.
HTTPS site hosted on IIS7 (windows server 2008), all runs fine.
we have added a URL link on one of the pages to a non-HTTPS site, but for some reason when clicking on the link it just loads a white page.

disabling forced HTTPS on the site and reverting to HTTP then allows that URL link to work.

any ideas what the issue is?
HTTPS is being enforced by a URL rewrite, so that is someone does attempt to load the HTTP version of the site it auto redirects to the HTTPS version. i'm wondering if that URL rewrite is also affecting the href links too?

Do you see the same problem using different web browsers?

Hi

You will most likely need ARR module (application routing) as the request will be port 80 but on port 443

Also, you would most likely need to carefully match your rule

This is based on assumption the http site is on same iis

This though, would give you mixed content and cause a browser warning

Many thanks

John
