Any reason this board isn't HTTPS?

Post by Kline » Wed Feb 14, 2018 2:18 am

With LetsEncrypt being a thing it's a pretty painless, free, and automated process to add HTTPS to most Apache or nginx setups. Wasn't sure if there was a specific reason it wasn't being used or if admins maybe weren't aware of it is all.

Ah mb, didn't see that other one and it's not too old with Nov 17 last post. Guess admin just doesn't feel like setting it up, oh well.

There are benefits including security plus using less server cpu & bandwidth.

And it helps with other things that regular http can't do.

We had this discussion months back in the thread FreeER linked. I have the same thoughts as Eric on this.
