After enabling HTTPS on a Sitecore website that is hosted on the AWS cloud, we are unable to access the Sitecore login page. https://www.[domainname].com/sitecore which returns 403 - Forbidden:Access is denied error. Some of the other pages do not load their contents as well. How can I resolved the access issue to the Sitecore Login page on Sitecore client?
The reason that I couldn't get access to the Sitecore Login page was that setting up HTTPS through Amazon load balancer placed the CMS behind the load balancer gate as well. I didn't add the IP of the load balancer's gate to the white listed IPs, and I wouldn't do such a thing as it would expose the login page to everyone. Ultimately I scrapped this approach and used a purchased certificate to enable the HTTPS.
