Debian Web Servers

Postby user2635 » 2017-10-08 11:46

I noticed that the when selecting the source for a debian web server (GUI), there's only an option for http.

Is this the case? What about https?

Hi Garry, I'm referring to sources for repos, does that make more sense?

Not really, maybe if you tell us exactly what it is you are trying to do ?
I'm referring to sources for repos,

If you are looking for a mirror, for your sources.list file, ? there are some that are https, you just need to look for them, I found 1 for you.
You just need to look through the list
and find one that you want to use.

https://www.debian.org/mirror/list

1 that offers https:
Denmark ftp.dk.debian.org/debian/
http://ftp.dk.debian.org/debian/
Welcome to mirrors.dotsrc.org

All our mirrors of open source software are available via http, https and ftp. More information about our mirrors including statistics and contact information is available on our mirror info pages.

user2635 might be refering to tasksel?
just install whatever is labeled 'http' - my guess is it will install apache, mysql and php, and that certainly includes the possibility (as gricketson pointed out) of using https, aka ssl.

I am not sure what the OP is talking about really, in any event even using tasksel to install a webserver , it will not just automatically be https by default,
that has to be done after the basic webserver is installed.
(As far as I know) Any webserver, needs to be configured for https, after it is installed.
It does not matter if it is apache , httpd , nginx, etc. (tasksel will install apache2),
If the OP is looking for repositories / mirrors that are using, or offer a https connection, they need to find one, there are some. They also need to install
the apt-transport-https package https://packages.debian.org/search?keywords=apt-transport-https
