Hey, I'm wondering, if you want a secure connection, can you just prepend HTTPS to the URI? I guess not, if so, is there another way to do it? Or does it need to be supported. If it needs to be supported, is there a way to check in a PHP script if it is?

Thanks in advance.

if you have a security certificate installed on your sever, then yes, you can just stick https:// at the beginning of your URL and it will work.
if you don't have SSL certificate, then I don't know what you're talking about...

OK, thanks. Is there a way to check whether I have an SSL certificate?
