[EP-tech] Re: Problems having the secure.xml template loaded OR How to get a different $config{base_url} for secure connections?



Hi Florian

	I believe that secure.xml was phased out some versions ago.  It certainly isn't part of the current release of EPrints (see https://github.com/eprints/eprints/tree/3.3/lib/templates ).

	I would suggest that you check you're loading resources correctly in the template:

		https://github.com/eprints/eprints/blob/3.3/lib/templates/default.xml#L8

	If that fails, swap your template for the default one of the version you're using and see if you still have the same problem.  Finally, if you're still lost, put your template up somewhere where we can see (do you have a github account?) it and post a link to it so we can take a look.
