I have a couple of directories set up so people can just type in auroraprint.ca/signup and it goes to www.auroraprint.ca/signup/index.html for example.
I just noticed this happen on our website and it used to work… Safari just says: Safari cannot open the page auroraprint.ca:443/signup because the server unexpectedly dropped the connection. It also doesn’t work in Firefox.
Not sure why the :443 is being added. Related to using https? This technique seems to still work with my page for Contact and Orders, but 2 pages I set up for Signup and Help don’t work They are pages that forward to another page - Signup forwards to our Mailchimp signup, for example.
The host is Rebel and they set up the certificate through a partner (can’t remember the name). I haven’t made any changes to the htaccess file recently but I hadn’t noticed this problem until today so maybe it hasn’t been working this whole time. I just tried auroraprint.ca/signup and contact on my iPhone and I got the error. I have to wait until tomorrow when I’m back in the office to see what’s in the htaccess.
Thanks Doug, that was how I understood it should work as well. I don’t know when this stopped working. We switched hosts last year, and shortly after moved to https. This is what we have for the htaccess file:
I used the first one exactly as posted, and I now get the error on my site:
I remove the htaccess file completely for now. I also noted that without the htaccess file, the signup page still isn’t working if I just type in auroraprint.ca/signup so I wonder if I need to contact my host.
