"Secure" is a little general. It's possible to secure site collections, individual sites, individual libraries and individual items. What is your specific need?--Paul Galvin, Computer Generated Solutions (CGS) Microsoft MVP - SharePoint Blogging @ Twitter @

Yes and no. The cert has to be put in IIS for the web application, but that doesn't mean that the web application has to use it. You could enforce SSL via a custom master page for the site and check if the request is in secure mode, if not, redirect to HTTPS. ChrisChris Givens CEO, Architecting Connected Systems Blog Twitter

Hi Chris, I have created one SharePoint web App e.g (Web app in SharePoint and WEB site in IIS7) Now is this possible to create Site Collection with this url (HTTPS) though i have tried https through stsadm.exe but i can't create the result always http >>> My question was that under one web app (http) can we create multiple https Portals (Site Collections) if so can you elaborate the process in detail. Hope you Understand

Hi Jameel, You would have to do this with code, either a user control that reverts to SSL or in the Page_Load method of a custom master page, you could revert to HTTPS. You will need a dev guy/gal to help you. ChrisChris Givens CEO, Architecting Connected Systems Blog Twitter

I am not sure if this is what you are looking for, but I have included some text along with its source ..."It is possible to use the same IP address or the same port for multiple SSL-enabled sites. The straightforward way is to use a fixed IP address and the same port for each site, so IIS can bind the site to the IP address and port. Alternatively, if your configuration uses one root domain and multiple subsites, you can use a wildcard certificate or certificate with multiple site alternative names (SANs). The process is mostly the same as for a regular certificate, but you cannot configure it in the IIS 7e screen under Site Bindings. Instead, use appcmd and run the following command to bind SSL to the site and set the host header: C:\Windows\System32\inetsrv\appcmd set site /<CustomSiteName> /+bindings.[protocol='https',bindingInformation='*:443:<FQDN>]. If done properly, you will see an SSL binding with the host header you specified under Site Bindings" Bray - MCT, MCPD, MCTS, MCITP Blog User Group Site:

Hi,Just let me know when i use cmd (stsadm.exe not power shell) for e.g. stsadm.exe -O CreateSite -URL -OwnerEmail -OwnerLogin dynamics\administrator -HHURL -sitetemplate STS#1 -title "HR Site Collection" The result of Site Collection is always http not https .. this is my Question? As you people knows under one web app we can create round 1500+ Site Collections so my question is if some one have web app (http) like can he create https on this web app without extending the web application. as far as i worked it seems, because we can configure SSL on web site (web app) level not portal level.Thanks
