|Whether to let user authenticate using https when they come from http.

If true, forces users to authenticate using https when they come from http, but only if you use a protocol-relative URL in
$wgServer (otherwise this setting is ignored).
Note also that under certain circumstances, when serving http and https in parallel on a web server, specifying http within a browser's location and adding the
fromhttp=1 query parameter, the login page will be downgraded from https to http, even when
$wgSecureLogin is set to true.
A link will then display above the username field allowing a user to choose the secure login option.
From 1.22 on, use
$wgDefaultUserOptions to set
prefershttps false by default if you want HTTP users to stay on HTTP after login by default.
Based on an idea by George Herbert on wikitech-l: mailarchive:wikitech-l/2010-October/050071.html.
You will need to set $wgServer as following.
$wgServer = "//replacethisexample.com"; $wgSecureLogin = true;
