The sensitivity of the login credentials of an online football forum doesn't warrant the high expenses for a proper SSL certificate. AvatarX and I love security but we need to keep costs down not up :(

As Mutu said, we take security and especially privacy very seriously, so I made the site available to https also, with a self-signed certificate with some strong ciphers which is the best I can do with the limited budget we have.

You can consider it as test (haven't got the time to test it very much), but in general you can login with some (more) trusted connection.

Although I should mention here that password reuse is one of the worst practices anyone can do and it is actually one of the biggest reason of data breaches in many companies.

I think we should use tokens. :P

Thanks AvatarX. I added your cert to my trusted roots. The https connection feels a tad slower; tad being about a sec and a half more than an regular http.

It looks like that problem is gone now... I was able to open other websites without a problem but not this one.

The server went down becaue Roonzil talked too much about Alcantara's brothers :P
