I'm not a techie and depend on Force SSL on my other sites (which I have not yet upgraded to the latest C5) to create secure pages. But I discovered that Force SSL doesn't work with the latest version of C5, and when I type in an https address the following error is returned -- "This webpage has a redirect loop" although Bluecast assures me the security on the site is up and running.
Question 1 -- What code is added to what file on what file path to force SSL without the Force SSL Block and would that potentially fix the glitch?
Question 2 -- On my project page for the new site I ended up with two "Found Location" entries with two urls (russellsmobile.com andhttp://www.russellsmobile.com) and I have no idea how two entries were created, whether that is glitching my SSL. I also have no idea how to remove one of the "Locations" or whether I should.
Any help out there?
swap out the name domainname with your domain name.
See if that helps
this issue is completely resolved in the new version...
The same occurs whether or not I add the 'BASE_URL' definition to site.php or not. Is there definitive documentation somewhere describing the process to install Concrete 5.5.1 with SSL? I remember having to go through a lot of hassle getting 5.4 to work with SSL as well, it really seems that it should be easier than this, or perhaps I am missing something simple.
Install my Force SSL addon. It's free and should solve your problem...

I also used this tool:http://www.whynopadlock.com/
That at least will give you some direction if the SSL is throwing issues even after all this other stuff is resolved.
