Can not see lock symbol next to my ssl enabled web application RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    I have a web application in my WSS3.0 server created without enabling SSL. Later i wanted to update the site with SSL.

    for that

    I installed SSL certificate in IIS.

    Changed the setting in directory security to use ssl and 128 bit encryption.

    Changed the URL to https in Alternate Access Mapping in Central admin.

    The Problem is

    When i open the root site collection with https url it opens and shows me a lock symbol next to address bar ( i am using IE)

    But when i open the subsite with https url, it opens and shows the content but with out lock symbol next to address bar.


    What is the problem? Is that the problem with my configuration or is that the way WSS3.0 works?

    Is my site not using that ssl yet?

    If we see any other like BOFA.com it will have lock symbol for all the pages.


    Thanks in Advance.
