I have received an SSL certificate from Thawte and installed on my server. As forms are accessed with HTTPS:// the form displays in secure mode; however, when someone completes the fields and submits... it appears the Frontpage extensions don't like it and an error is returned, such as:

The page cannot be displayed
The page you are looking for is currently unavailable. The Web site might be experiencing technical difficulties, or you may need to adjust your browser settings.

the following URL is displayed in the address field:

https://www.thevsp.com/_vti_bin/shtml.exe/statics/Activate.html

Has anyone experienced and corrected this issue?

BTW, I have uninstalled and re-installed the FrontPage Extensions and it appears it installs the extensions for port 80 only... anyone know how to install the extensions for port 443, the SSL encryption port?

Edmond, OK
Front Page

We ran into the same problem. So far there is no fix that I'm aware of. We used formmail to process the orderforms and have swithed over to PHP.

One thing to check is that your FP web is not utilizing shared borders. FP places .gif's and similar files into the _border directory which lies outside of the main directory. SSL will not allow images to be called from outside of the main directory structure.

Both formmail.cgi and cgiemail work fine with FP 2000 with or without SSL.
