How can I have CodeIgniter load specific pages using SSL?

Questions: How can I have CodeIgniter load specific pages using SSL? I have an apache2/mode_ssl server. mod_ssl uses a different document root than non-secure pages. For example, https (port 443) would serve pages out of /var/www/ssl_html/ And http (port 80) serves pages out of /var/www/html/. How would I get CodeIgniter to play nice with this… Read More »

CodeIgniter – why use xss_clean

Questions: if I’m sanitizing my DB inserts, and also escaping the HTML I write with htmlentities($text, ENT_COMPAT, ‘UTF-8’) – is there any point to also filtering the inputs with xss_clean? What other benefits does it give? Answers: xss_clean() is extensive, and also silly. 90% of this function does nothing to prevent xss. Such as looking… Read More »

Codeigniter Routes regex – using dashes in controller/method names

Questions: I’m looking for a one line route to route dashed controller and method names to the actual underscored controller and method names.
