    Hello,

    I pulled down the source code from a development server to run a local instance of our site running in VS 2015 using Cassini. The site is working although I am not able to login to the backend. I receive "SSL connection error ERR_SSL_PROTOCOL_ERROR" upon hitting login.The credentials are correct.  I've tried to enable SSL, but still nothing.

    I am pretty new to Sitefinity in general, but I've taken the source code from a different server and I wonder if there is some configuration I'm missing?

     

    Thank you

    I enabled SSL through the project properties and browsed through the https URL and this fixed the problem.
