I did quite a bit of search on both here and google and could not find a solution to my problem.
In a nutshell I installed a self-signed ssl certificate to a test web server that runs on IIS6/Windows Server 2003. The self-signed ssl cert was generated using the IIS6 tool.
If I go to https//mywebsite.com I get the "not authentic ssl cert" warning message and I just click Continue and it works. (normal behavior for self-signed ssl).
This works for HTML, but for PHP is not working, phpinfo shows https = off. BTW I'm running PHP 5.2.17.
The weird thing is that in the production server I have exactly the same setup for the same application, the only difference is that on that server I have installed a legit ssl cert, and php info shows https = on.
So I'm starting to think the following:
A) php won't detect a self-signed ssl cert, is this correct?
B) I'm missing something obvious, what kind of things can I check?
