Run the forum on another port

Q: I am running the forum on port xxxxx (other than 80), and I got HTTP 404 error when I tried to log in.

A: Please follow the steps below:
  • Connect to your database with Query Analyzer or our database installer, and then run this SQL Statement:
    Update pgd_config set forumdir = 'http://www.yourdomain.com:xxx/forum/' 

    xxx is the port number, and don' t forget to include the trailing slash " /" . Of course you will need to change the value to match your site.
That's it. The forum works with port 80 by default, and with the above tweaks, it can work on any ports without problems.

Q: What about SSL (https://; port 443)?

A: You don' t have to worry about https:// . Once the software is installed on a https enabled site, it will just run without you having to do the above tweaks.

A small issue with https:// protocol - all the Gravatar images are linked with http://, which makes the browsers display "Your connection is not truly secure..." warning. And there are a lot of Gravatar avatar images, as the reversed blue G image is the default avatar, if the user did not select otherwise. How can I change them all to https:// instead? I verified that https link to Gravatar images works fine, just don't know how to force the Forum code use them.

Not much luck getting an answer here... Anyway, I found a "good enough" solution myself, by simply disabling Gravatar in user registration options. Now my forum works fine in https protocol, without browsers showing any more security warnings.
