The FIRST step in getting SSL to work, is to get a certificate.
Please read the previous posts.

Marking this topic solved, as at this stage it is not an SMF issue.

Good for you. Maybe time to change forums software.

Feel free, if you feel it makes you happier. The other option would be to read through what we have already told you, and accept that your issue is with your server configuration first, only when you have that part covered can you get SMF configured too.

You need to take that in context. Large corporations might do this if they were stupid. Small businesses with stupid snooping bosses might do this. Educational institutions that are stupid and not worth studying at might do this. Any ISP worth their salt will not be doing this, they'd be out of business real fast if they were. It's actually pretty easy to check, despite what Steve Gibson says.

I have read the previous posts. I'm trying to help you, but if you want to start being a d*** about it I'll just walk away.

If you can't make it work with a static file (i.e. excluding SMF), you're going to have about as much fun with the other forum platforms.

Also as far as "the believers" go, I doubt your users will be too keen on entering a password into a box that most browsers will explicitly mark "insecure" if not on HTTPS. All my dev sites on my local don't have HTTPS and I'm fairly sure at some point Chrome is just going to not let me enter a password any more.

But sure, let's call Google "believers" (they're one of the people driving the encryption movement, even to the point of downranking HTTP only sites)

And locking as the conversation has taken a contentious turn.
