SSL Installed

Recommended Posts

As part of our ever preventative measures to be proactive with securing your data and keeping everyone happy here at FP, I have bought and installed an SSL certificate for use on here.



What does this mean?


It means that some pages that you are inserting sensitive information (like the login page) are now encrypted and protected. This will make it harder for anyone trying to intercept your password and hopefully making it harder to have unauthorized access. Eventually our goal is to have the whole site run under the SSL (e.g. https://foreverpontiac.com)but the current version of our software is making that a little difficult. Sometime this year we plan to upgrade to the newer version which has full-site SSL capability.



What do you have to do?


Nothing. The forum software will force you to login in using https://foreverpontiac.comand anytime you are inserting sensitive information.



If you have any issues, please email us or report them here. Thanks!

Yup, I'm excited on this new version to be beaten up during the first couple months of release and 3rd party devs to update some applications we use for it then finally we'll update to it. There are a lot of performance, usability and security features I'm eager to get out :)

As another former programmer ... Thanks for the work. Keep it interesting for yourself. The moment you loose that6 zeal ... it get's old real fast.
