I have a big problem, in my Sharepoint site when I am trying to open Excel files in document library, it shows " access the web server by default disabled. It uses basic authentication but it does not use Secure socket layer(SSL)" error.

I'm running Basic authentication over a non-SSL connection in Sharepoint.

Try to add the site to the Trusted Sites or Intranet Sites, via the Internet Explorer Options.

  • Thanks Marius for your response , Already i tested the site by adding in Intranet sites and trusted sites via internet explorer options, but no result. i think the problem with SSL certificates. please help me if you have any idea about SSL certificates. Thanks, Bommula. – bommula Feb 14 '13 at 5:03
