FS#870 Add https for login page
There really needs to be a way to have https for the login page, then drop back to http once login is complete. Right now, I'm doing everything over https, but the overhead for encrypting EVERYTHING is killing my server. And honestly, I don't know how to get modrewrite to do this if that is what someone suggests.
I saw there was a darcs patch someone posted on the mailing list, but the patch didn't seem to match up to the current files.
Any help on this would be appriciated.
So, I have solved this problem. I went aheard and applied the patch as it looked (even though it didn't look right), and it works.
This really should be added to the main tree... for someone like me that uses an ldap backend, and that ldap backend is also used for email, and other person information, it seems silly to not encrypt the web traffic that carries the username and password.
