I am using mod rewrite to force all SSL on all my pages.   My question is I have some php that I do not know the proper ways to handle the url now.  It works the way it is I just did not know if that is correct.

Do I leave this as http or do I change it to https

$logo_info = getimagesize("http://www.prizemagnet.com".$logo);

Open in new window


This is the mod rewrite I am using to force the SSL.

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} 80
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://example.com/$1 [R=301,L]

If you remove the 'http', it will use the current method, whether it is 'http' or 'https'.  Something I learned recently.  Like this.
$logo_info = getimagesize("//www.prizemagnet.com".$logo);

Although... you are better off if you can access the file as a local file instead of using 'http(s)' because it is generally quicker.  It goes directly to the file system instead of through the network.  I think...

Since it is a separate connection from the one from the browser it has no bearing on that SSL connection, so carry on with http

Actually Gary is right, I was still thinking it was in the browser.  But you are still better off if you can access it as a local file.
