Added HTTPS to site

Post by vampirefrog »

Hey guys, you may have noticed that vgmrips now loads using https. The old http URLs should be redirected to https.

The main issue I had with this, and the reason why I didn't do it earlier, is because the chatbox uses WebSockets, and I couldn't figure out a way to secure that as well.

Turns out, Apache 2 has mod_proxy_wstunnel, which can proxy websocket requests, and that's what I'm using serverside.

The SSL certificate I think expires in August, and I think it was pretty cheap, so we'll get a new one then.

The https switch should also rank us slightly higher on google.
