Important: #97111 - Default URI scheme

See forge#97111


Several places in the TYPO3 Core fall back to using http as a protocol for links in case none was given. In order to adjust this behavior the new $GLOBALS['TYPO3_CONF_VARS']['SYS']['defaultScheme'] setting has been introduced, which uses http as default.

In order to adjust the default protocol, one has to add the following assignment to their typo3conf/LocalConfiguration.php settings:

$GLOBALS['TYPO3_CONF_VARS']['SYS']['defaultScheme'] = 'https'
