HTTPS Simple link not working

HTTPS Simple link not working

I'm having the same problems alot of other people are having...connecting issues with the HTTPS migrate.

I've done some testing and came to this.  I should be able to simply put  - -

in my Firefox browser and when the username / password comes up, use the username and password I used in the contact.php script. Then it shuold connect and give me something, right? 

what is does give me is - Error 401: Error reported: 401 -

Any advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.



You are receiving a 401 error

You are receiving a 401 error due to an authentication failure. You want to make sure that for the username field you are inputting your API key and username separated by a '%'. EX: fb01f979-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXXabcd1212%joesflowers


Once you have the correct login information you should be able to retrieve collection information from the URI.
