I'm trying to switch over to https as the protocol for WebMO. One way to do it is to ask my users to log in over https (and provide only that link). But is there a way to enforce it? I'm loath to play around with the "webserverProtocol" in the globals.int file, and I don't really know if that'll really do what I want at any rate. Thank you!

The easiest way to do this is probably by modifying the Apache (webserver) configuration file to enforce this. You can do this only for the WebMO login page (which is probably what you want!)

See, for example: http://wiki.apache.org/httpd/RewriteHTTPToHTTPS
