One of my clients has a site that has no SSL, i.e. not even a generic SSL. If you try to access the site using https, you get taken to a generic page from the hosting company, not their site. I contacted the hosting company about this, and they said that if we want secure connections to go to their website, they'll have to purchase a private cert.
The problem is that I'm getting security errors when i try to cache their template, i.e.:
A reference to a non secure css file was found:
Please take a look at our automatic template caching documentation for more info.Your template has been saved, but your customers will see insecure content warnings. Please set the template url and cache your template which will rewrite all HTTP references to HTTPS.
I'm not sure why this is an error that I should be concerned about, since all of the styles and style images get cached to your secure servers, but I've been told by your team that it's a concern and visitors to the site may see security warnings. But obviously with this site, if I try to grab any stylesheets via a secure connections, the stylesheet isn't found.
Is there any way to resolve this sort of error without making my client buy a private certificate?
