I am getting error on FireFox "connection partially encrypted" other browsers show that's not encrypted... When I setup apache with ssl I use "/var/www/html/" for default directory, but all scripts are in /var/www/cgi-bin/ so is there a problem? or I'am on wrong way? But when switch to "/var/www/" I get an default CentOS web. (Like new server)

Maybe, someone have an ideas?

Thanks in advance.

This question came from our site for system and network administrators.

Your page is likely referencing a part (image, frame, etc) by an absolute reference (ie example.com/image.png). All page content must be encrypt for the "connection" to be encrypted. – Chris S Jan 27 '12 at 22:03
  1. Ctrl+U to view page source in Firefox

  2. Ctrl+F and enter http: to find the resources requested from a non-SSL connection

  3. Correct references to unsecured resources (you can use URI's of the form //domain.com/resource to avoid specifying HTTP/SSL)
