 SSL versus File Upload Scripts
Author: el_kab0ng

After the extensive help on FTP related issues (which has been much appreciated guys/girls) I bring to the table a new problem.

I have another Free BSD 4.0 RELEASE box running Apache/Raven SSL. I have been given the quest to design a file upload system through a browser. Not that the CGI creation is that big of a deal, but here's the problems I'm having. Any support is greatly appreciated as usual.

SSL runs by default on port 443. This is pretty much the standard. I am assuming that file upload scripts that utilize (or strict CGI) run their uploads through port 80.

With this in mind, here's what is occuring:
The script functions flawlessly, even reports that the file has been uploaded. When checking the bin assigned for the upload, the files are not being uploaded. I assuming this is because of the SSL. Since my server is not listening on 80, but on 443, these files are being dropped somehow.

I don't want this to become a script thread, since the script itself is functioning, but rather, a SSL discussion. Is there anyway around this? Am I totally off the ball with what I have attempted?
