Using SSL problem - the same problem that many others have

I wanted to set up Piwigo on my own domain, mostly to be able to host "illustrations" for various documents . And since I wanted to host this on a domain that has SSL on shared account I soon ran into the same problem that many others have reported, for example https://piwigo.org/forum/viewtopic.php?id=28840.

I tried to use the solution outlined but the hosting company tells me that because of the load balancing stuff they use it will not really work unless I get a VPS ... which feels like a huge overkill for my planned usage.

I could of course use a non-SSL domain but then I assume there will be "mixed content" warnings for visitors to these pages where I embed "illustrations".

Does anyone have an alternative suggestion for how to handle this, or should I be looking at some other of way (software?) of handling this?

(I understand that the problem is that SSL uses port 443 but the load balancer changes this to port 80 in a way that doesn't work with Piwigo. I don't really understand what the problem is, the only thing I know that it work OK with software like DokuWiki which also have the ability to log in people, edit documents and upload files).

Re: Using SSL problem - the same problem that many others have

Well, if you read [Forum, topic 28440] Heif, did you also try the workaround mentioned, [Github] Piwigo issue #681 near the bottom there (Workaround using PHP's .user.ini and auto_prepend_file)? (I assume "tried to use the solution outlined" means the httpd.conf VirtualHost entry in that forum thread).

I tried the .user.ini solution.

As far I as know I can't change the virtual hosting change since that is a server configuration (right?) and since I'm on shared hosting plan I have no control of the server.
