Trouble pointing the Welcome Page to SSL Version RRS feed

  • Question

  • We started our SharePoint site without the use of SSL, but now have the site running on SSL.  The problem I am having is getting the 'Welcome Page' form to target the https:// (ssl) address instead of the http:// (non-ssl) address.

    How can I get sharePoint to allow me to point it to the https:// verson?

  • You cannot configure this in the welcome page. The welcome page has to be a page in the current site and has to be provided with a site relative path.

    If the SharePoint site needs to be accessed through SSL and not through http you should create a redirection on the IIS http site to the SSL site.
