I am running Community7.0 behind a reverse proxy (HAPROXY) which redirects all HTTP(80) traffic to use HTTPS(443). NGINX's alfresco.conf has ssl_certificate specified so my connections to the outside world are secure. Since communication between NGINX and ALFRESCO on the box itself are all http://127.0.0.1:8080, all connected clients are instructed to use HTTP(80). This, of course, gets redirected to HTTPS(443) by HAPROXY so everything stays encrypted however all these necessary redirects are messy IMO.
QUESTION 1: My research leads me to a thread that instructs adding the following to my global properties file and I want to know if this will tell all clients to use HTTPS(443) when coming back into HAPROXY so it doesn't have to redirect everything?
QUESTION 2: I recall my original Alfresco5.2 build using HTTPS on port :8443 for nginx to tomcat communication so the redirect issue I see now never came up. Is there a SSL Certificate installation guide for Community7.0 to encrypting traffic HTTPS(8443)?
