Forum OpenACS Improvement Proposals (TIPs): TIP#154 Add AllowHTTPSRedirects parameter to acs-tcl
This parameter forces HTTPS as a valid protocol in security::locations when nsopenssl is disabled but HTTPS is handled by a proxy.
Or yes.. it could be a package parameter. The question would be if acs-tcl is the right package for that. acs-subsite and acs-kernel have also SSL related parameters.
Obviously its easier to configure with a package parameter, but this makes more sense to me in the config file, since it really is defining the configuration of the server, and the package defines its behavior from that, we are not really modifying the package behavior.
Overall I don't see as a big point. Victor if you can provide the code that would be great. Thanks
I remember that.
I don't see it in the system, so I assumed you decided not to contribute it.
If it is already in the system, where is it?
Victor's solution includes modifying the headers. This is important for some cases.
FWIW, making it a config.tcl setting may be best afterall, if it's also modifying http headers (and affecting multiple packages)
