    Default change password link is broken again

    i think a version of the 21246 bug is back. we just installed community edition of 5.0.13, mostly working except that in the ajax (or html) interface, if a user clicks on the 'change pwd' button/link under preferences, it tries to open an http connection to the server (we're running https only mode).

    am i missing something?

    thanks

    Default source of problem?

    here's the code and problem (i think):

    // Popup the change password dialog.
    ZmPreferencesPage.prototype._changePasswordListene r =
    function(ev) {
    var url = appCtxt.get(ZmSetting.CHANGE_PASSWORD_URL);
    if (!url) {
    url = appCtxt.get(ZmSetting.PUBLIC_URL) + "/h/changepass";
    }
    if (!url) {
    var isHttp = appCtxt.get(ZmSetting.PROTOCOL_MODE) == ZmSetting.PROTO_HTTP;
    var proto = isHttp ? ZmSetting.PROTO_HTTP : ZmSetting.PROTO_HTTPS;
    var port = appCtxt.get(isHttp ? ZmSetting.HTTP_PORT : ZmSetting.HTTPS_PORT);
    url = AjxUtil.formatUrl({protocolroto, portort, path:"/zimbra/h/changepass", qsReset:true});
    }

    url is getting set to 'url = appCtxt.get(ZmSetting.PUBLIC_URL) + "/h/changepass";' _before_ the fancy check for protocol - so its never hitting the part that does formatUrl().

    I think the easiest solution here is to just change your domain's "Public service host name" to the hostname to your Zimbra web interface, e.g. "webmail.foobar.com".

    How do you change that?
    Will it matter if I'm using ssl? e.g. "https://secure.foobar.com"

    ok...scratch that...you can do it via the web gui.
    Now...how do you make it point to a secure address?

    I'm still not having any luck with making the change password link secure.
    My url is https://secure.foobar.com and I'd like the entire site/experience/exposure/whatever to be ssl secured.

    I did put in the "Public Service Host Name" and the change password then changed from http://foobar.com/changepass to http://secure.foobar.com/changepass.

    I tried telling one user to just pencil in the needed "s" in the url. Now I have to buy a new monitor.

    still searching for a solution....any zimbra employees care to chime in?

    My users are getting increasingly antsy because they can't change their passwords and I refuse to open up a non-secure web port just for a password change form.
