Configure SharePoint On-premises on HTTPS


When using Anywhere365 and SharePoint in the same (virtual) server, both will want to use HTTP port 80. In this scenario we advice to use HTTPS 443 for SharePoint.

SharePoint 6.0 or higher uses javascript for the navigation, which is set during the installation. If you change to HTTPS while you already have sites created the following steps need to be run:
