Relaibility of $_SERVER['HTTPS'] if user coming through proxy server?
Posted on 2004-09-23
Hi, this may be a stupid question, but will the value of $_SERVER['HTTPS'] be affected if a user coming to my site through a proxy server? I encountered some reliability issues around usign the $_SERVER['HTTP-REFERRER'] variable. The PHP documentation mentions that HTTP-REFERRER is not reliabile, but makes no mention of ['HTTPS'].
Is it a reliable method? What is people's experience using $_SERVER['HTTPS'], especially in regards to proxy servers, etc?
Thanks for your help!
