|Introduced in version:||1.3.0|
|Removed in version:||1.18.0 (r90193)|
|Allowed values:||(URL prefix (protocol, host, optional port; no path portion))|
|Default value:||dynamically created|
|Other settings: Alphabetical | By function|
This value is set automatically when the value is determined for $wgServer if the server where the MediaWiki installation resides is a secure server.
Note that prior to 1.6.0 this setting was only used temporarily to create $wgServer, and was unset() afterwards, but from 1.6.0 onwards it remains set throughout, and is used to calculate the default value of $wgCookieSecure.
Value is set by includes/DefaultSettings in a "best guess" pattern. If you want to change it, you need to overwrite other related values as well or modify DefaultSettings.php.
