I switched my web app url from http to https. Everything worked fine with https except the links on pages. they pointed to the old url. I deleted the old url on ISS manager site and now I am left with https binding only. Now the links point out to new https url and links at hte top bar (neewfeed, one drive, sites ) even though they are https they give me the following error message when clicked on "404 NOT FOUND". Is there any way to redirect http to https ? I have used http redirect which tells me that there is an error in redirection. Should I create again http binding or there is any other way to get rid of these messages and configure everything correctly.
To extend a Web application to use an SSL certificate, there are several steps that must be followed and configured in the right order.
What i did when i was going to extend my webapplications to use SSL, i followed this guide, which i think is the best up to date. Remember to use a real certificate for production environments. And of course always test it out in a staging environment before applying to production.
