Community site: login faq

I've been out of the website game for a while now and I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong. I'm more of a graphics person. >.<

shouldn't I be able to type www.website.com instead of Https://www.website.com?

I have a hankering it's some type of redirect but I don't know where to start. Any helpful comments would be appreciated.

Thanks! Ian Monty

Welcome back.

As per, https://docs.webfaction.com/user-guide/websites.html?highlight=secure#secure-sites-https

"If you need your site to be available over both HTTP and HTTPS, then create two website records, one HTTP and the other HTTPS, and ensure that both sites are assigned to the same IP address."

My guess is that you might not have a second site record setup for HTTP.

Thanks for the Reply Nick. I've got the Http:// and Https:// redirects working. I'm having trouble when I just type in www.website leaving out the http.

It shows a Webfaction splash. How DO I correct this?

If you navigate to any popular website and remove the http:// from the address bar it reverts to http?
