Yii::app()->getRequest()->getQuery('model') is null on http->https

Hi guys, I’m pretty confused here and still (relatively) new to Yii (Version 1.1.14) so any help or advice is appreciated :)

I recently added an ssl cert to my server and it all works well except in one scenario: trying to access Yii when it redirects from http to https.

Let’s say my url is this: http__test_my application_com/folder/index.php/api/create/p1/p2




array('api/create', 'pattern'=>'api/create/<model:\w+>/<id:\w+>', 'verb'=>'POST')

Before I added the ssl cert, I had no problem at all accessing p1 and p2 via:



Now, with the ssl cert installed, if I navigate to https__test_my application_com/folder/index.php/api/create/p1/p2 I can still access the parameters ok.

I have my apache (2.2.2) vhost setup like:

VirtualHost *:80>

ServerName __test_my application_com

Redirect permanent "/" "https__test_my application_com/"

#RewriteEngine On

#RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} 80

#RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https__test_my application_com$1 [R,L,QSA]

So if I use a http url it reroutes me to the https url. This works fine for all other programs on the server. However, within Yii, if I now navigate to http the parameters are suddenly null. I can’t figure out why this is happening only in Yii. Why does it work for https but not http->https?

As you can see above, I’ve experimented between Redirects and Rewrites - both give the same result.

Printing out the following:

print_r(json_encode(Yii::app()->getRequest()->isSecureConnection) . PHP_EOL);

print_r(json_encode(Yii::app()->getRequest()->getQuery('model')) . PHP_EOL);



Gives almost identical results except that model is null on http



Can anybody please point me in the right direction?

(Assume my links are correct - I wasn’t allowed post without making them look weird because it’s my first post :) )

Of course as soon as I post this I realise that the redirect is changing my POST to a GET and that’s why it’s failing :)
