This website now has HTTPS support after much configuration! Yay!


Just a quick post this time, but nevertheless important.

This website finally has HTTPS support!

This means everything is now served encrypted, and the whole experience should be more secure. It should also be a little bit faster as well thanks to HTTP/2 support – which you can only realistically have if you use HTTPS. I’ve set up redirects as well: any attempt to access any portion of this site over HTTP will result in a redirect to use HTTPS instead. You don’t have to change any links, it’ll happen automatically, and it shouldn’t have any effect on your ability to use this site.

Incidentally, I have to identify myself to my hosting provider with a text message to enable encryption. I’ve been having a lot of trouble getting it to work, but fortunately they’re nice and after some discussion they manually activated it for me. Yay for good hosting providers!

This is a very short post, but I will have some more stuff out soon, including a demonstration of PXE booting to complement my PXE howto, so watch this space 🙂

About Hamish McIntyre-Bhatty

I'm a self-employed software developer working on Free Software projects, as well as studying for my degree with the Open University. Being pedantic when it comes to detail is fortunately useful for both of these things! A strong believer in free software, I have a few pay-for programs available under the GPLv3 and enjoy reporting bugs and helping to improve various open source projects, including volunteering at Wimborne Model Town to work on their river control system.
