Hi, thanks in advance for taking time to read my first post on Joomla. I read the article: ... t#p1038134

It's posted as solved, however, to someone who is new to Apache and Joomla in general I must have overlooked something in the following code:

SSLOptions +StrictRequire
SSLRequire %{HTTP_HOST} eq ""
ErrorDocument 403

I've tried implementing it in my .htaccess file and even followed the link to for help. Assume I have a default extraction of Joomla 1.5 and setup. What changes do I need to make? Accessing the site via and works, so the SSL cert is functional.

Could use some help, thanks.
