Description

Hi ruby-lang.org admins,

while managing the new ruby-de list I noticed that lists.ruby-lang.org is not reachable via HTTPS properly. If one tries, the browser first displays a TLS certificate domain mismatch warning, and after dismissing that one, the web server returns a 404 error e.g. for https://lists.ruby-lang.org/cgi-bin/mailman/admin/ruby-de. This is unfortunate, because browsers start to complain about logins on non-HTTPS websites. The list admin interfaces like the one on http://lists.ruby-lang.org/cgi-bin/mailman/admin/ruby-de use login forms, so making them reachable via HTTPS would be a good idea.

Please fix this once you get around to it. It's not a pressing issue, but it should be resolved before browsers start actively rejecting logins on unencrypted sites (and it's better for passwords to be sent over TLS anyway).

Greetings
Marvin

I enabled HTTPS of lists.ruby-lang.org

https://lists.ruby-lang.org/cgi-bin/mailman/admin/ruby-de

Can you confirm that behavior?

Updated by Quintus (Marvin Gülker) over 2 years ago

I can confirm that the site is now reachable via HTTPS as well. Firefox now accepts the login field without a warning.

Thank you again!

Just entering https://lists.ruby-lang.org as URL however redirects to the non-HTTPS version. I don't know whether this is expected behaviour, but I just wanted to let you know. Using https://lists.ruby-lang.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo directly works flawlessly.

Thank you for your confirming.

I enforced https on all of lists.ruby-lang.org.
