Ok guys, running the latest EPiServer 8 with all the latest patches.
I was having the following problem. The search in edit mode for blocks and pages wasnt working.
So i didnt had the search service installed and activated: http://world.episerver.com/Modules/Forum/Pages/Thread.aspx?id=71532
Now i did that on my dev environment and my site in indexed and i can search the pages now perfectly.
if i access: http://hr.local/IndexingService/IndexingService.svc i can perfectly see the 'Endpoint not found.' message.
Now i deployed this to our test server where the site runs on SSL .. And i tried to change the BaseUri to the url on the test environment like so
if i go to https://hr.test.servername.nl/IndexingService/IndexingService.svc i get
The link you gave does not work, either because the page it points to has been deleted or moved. If you clicked on a link, please inform the site’s webmaster that the link is faulty.
[HttpException: There was no channel actively listening at 'https://hr.test.servername.nl/IndexingService/IndexingService.svc'. This is often caused by an incorrect address URI. Ensure that the address to which the message is sent matches an address on which a service is listening.]

at System.ServiceModel.Activation.HostedHttpTransportManager.HttpContextReceived(HostedHttpRequestAsyncResult result)
Now if i would run http://hr.test.servername.nl/IndexingService/IndexingService.svc (without SSL), i get the correct message "Endpoint not found."
So what is happening here? Why doesnt this work on SSL. I also have multiplesitebinding enabled set to true.
The test server is running on windows server 2008 R2.
Does any of you have had this experience before?
