Failed to test HTTPS connection! The settings have not been saved.

reederda 1 year ago • updated by Vlad R 1 year ago 1

I'm currently connected to my FileRun installation via HTTPS. I would like to enable the "Force connections to https" option, but every time I try, I get the following message:


"Failed to test HTTPS connection! The settings have not been saved."


I don't know what this means, nor do I know how to resolve it. It would be nice if a troubleshooting tool was included? Or at least some documentation. Does anyone know how to fix this?

FileRun is testing to make sure access via HTTPS works, before enabling a forced redirect which might prevent you from being able to access FileRun again.

For this test to be successful PHP needs to be able to connect to the FileRun installation via HTTPS. Perhaps there is something that prevents that.


If you do not wish to troubleshoot the network connection. It's simpler and more efficient to instead configure your server to redirect the users to HTTPS instead of having FileRun do it.
