Enable ssl (e.g. via let's encrypt)?
#1
Hi,

this websites is still using plain http. Is there any intention to switch to https, e.g. using Let's Encrypt?

Cheers,

Hi Thacoon,

To be honest I don't have any plans, but I have nothing against considering it either. I don't have deep knowledge about this. I run this forum inside my ISP hosting, they provide a prepackaged installer that set up everything. I manually update it directly from myBB site from time to time. On their documentation there is a chapter about setting up https (https://docs.mybb.com/1.8/administration...ity/https/), but it's not a trivial thing, as getting the SSL certificate is just a step in configuration process. This forum doesn't hold any kind of sensitive data so I really haven't considered the need for it.

However if someone is willing to do the task, I would grant temporary access to the server files to do the maintenance.
