In the magento config there is an entry for each unsecure_base_url and secure_base_url.
In which case does magento link to the secure and when to the unsecure url?
When I disable the usage of a secure url both in admin and in frontend, there are spots
magento tries to use the secure url.
I found nowhere a documentation about this issue.
Thx in advance JimmyBlue
secure is mainly for the checkout process and customer logins. Hence why you should have a SSL certificate. I’ve never encountered the second part of your statement (spots magento tries) but that could be a result of cache, cookies, or a particular module,
Ideally you want a https in your secure url (so you need a SSL certificate), and use secure in frontend/backend to yes.
