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.

PC or phone? Browser or Tapatalk? Give as many details as you can. If you're on a PC, try Ctrl+F5.

Seems like an issue with your Internet service, looks like DNS issue.

There was an issue with the server and AvatarX and I had to revert to a backup. All posts and thanks should have been copied, but you may notice that some posts you read over the last 3-4 hours may become marked as unread again.

Because you have a low number of posts. There rarely is a need for a new user to send private messages unless to spam. Hopefully your intentions are correct :)
