Converting from other board software? Good decision! Need help? Have a question about a convertor? Wish to offer a convertor package? Post here.

Running 3.2 & just switched over to HTTPS but seem to have an issue...

Post by Macko » Mon Jun 19, 2017 9:13 am

Hi everyone!

Long story short, we just updating our 3.2 phpBB forum from http to HTTPS, and for some strange reason it seems that the phpBB software has started only counting a few guests.

We would almost always have at least 700-1000+ online right now, but it shows about 250, and even a lot less a short while ago.

Now I know you're probably thinking that maybe we really do only have 250 online, but considering we just did some social shares on Facebook, it's almost impossible that only 250 could have visited our site within the past 3 hours, which is what we have our stats set to show.

We also have CloudFlare, just in case that makes a difference.

Is there anyone out there who might know what's causing most of our traffic not to show up on our forum stats?

**solicitation removed**

Many thanks!

Excellent, thanks! I will send this to the Developer who did the work so that he can check those steps. Sorry, I'd do it myself, but lines of codes, etc, is just not something I'm even allowed to touch on my forum, lol.

Also, my friend who helped, the developer who actually did it, and the guide you linked to all have slightly different codes in the htaccess file. Is the one in the guide the one and only that's correct, and should we switch it?

Line 3, the first bit after 'RewriteRule' is different in all 3 variations:

the guide you posted: ^.*$ https
the one our dev used: ^/?(.*) https
the one my friend suggested: (.*) https

Are the ones from my friend and also the one our dev used incorrect and need to be changed?

Thanks.

On a board I'm developing, adding these 3 lines to .htaccess did the trick for me, forces your forum to use https:

Code: Select all

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTPS} !=on
RewriteRule .* https://YOURURL.COM%{REQUEST_URI} [R,L]
