Is DW creating redirects?

I host about a dozen sites using Bluehost who recently provided free htts://.  For the second time my main website has somehow magically implemented a very long redirect. The address bar will show the correct site, but the content is displaying from a different site. Tech support tells me that it is in the .htaccess file and DW, but no changes have been made to it. When tech changed the .htaccess it did not solve the problem. I deleted the .htaccess which did not solve the problem.

Tech support is again telling me that the problem lies with DW and they can't make changes, but they are restoring my sites back to the end of September which will hopefully solve the problem.

So, do you think that DW could be cursing me like this? I strongly suspect something with the secure site as the first time this happened was right after switching to the secure. I'm still learning and appreciate any help!

Dreamweaver does not do anything, it is merely a text editor. Tech support should know better when they advise you of this.

Things to consider when changing to a secure site (this is what Tech support should be telling you)

  • a permanent redirect to https://. On a Unix/Linux platform this can be done in the .htaccess file
  • the links within the website documents that point to http:// should be changed to https://

If you want a more precise response, please give us the link to the site.

WhyNoPadlock.com is a quick & painless way to check your site for mixed or blocked content which could potentially break your site.

A redirect could be coming from:

  • .htaccess file on the server
  • your DNS provider
  • a client side script.

Dreamweaver does not generate redirects.
