Why is my HTTPS form posting to the HTTP page?


Recommended Posts

If I'm on https://myserver.com/test.php, why is this form posting to the HTTP version of the page?


<form method="post" action="test.php?step=1">
<input type="text" name="email">
<input type="submit" name="submit">


I can hard-code the full path in the action, but that seems unnecessary.


Further, I have some pages where it posts to HTTPS first (as I expect). Why would it go to one versus another?

The only additional information I have is that based on browser settings, a user might get "although this page is encrypted the information you have entered is to be sent over an unencrypted network."


This still doesn't make sense. It is an HTTPS page with a relative URL. How can it be posting as HTTP? Ugh.
