Hello all,

I am looking for anyone with SSL applied to their site. I am trying to do something that requires I put SSL on my Apache, but I am thinking that if I do that, then people will get to my site by typing https://www...

If there is anyone running SSL, please show me your site to see what it looks like.

I used SSL briefly on one of my sites. Just would up redirecting all http traffic to https.

IIRC, the site url - as defined in the config.php - includes the http bit.
All you'd need to do to allow access via https (ie ssl) is to change the config.php to reflect the fact that the url is now https and personally, I'd also change the apache config to redirect normal port 80 (http) to the port 443 (https).
People would only be able to access via both http and https if the DocumentRoot was the same in the apache config - obviously this is assuming that you're using apache Smile
