RESOLVING ISSUE WITH CROSS ORIGIN RESOURCE SHARING POLICY FOR WEBSITES HEADER

Another issue that we experienced was displaying content from different domains especially when using HTTP and HTTPS. Here’s an example of the error message:

Font from origin ‘https://website’ has been blocked from loading by Cross-Origin Resource Sharing policy: No ‘Access-Control-Allow-Origin’ header is present on the requested resource. Origin ‘http://website’ is therefore not allowed access.

The fix is to add the following statement to either the .htaccess file or if you’re using nginx VPS then add it to the nginx.conf file in /etc/nginx/

add_header ‘Access-Control-Allow-Origin’ ‘*’;

Once you’ve added it to the nginx.conf file make sure to restart the service by using the command:

service nginx restart

Then you can test it by using curl -I http://website

If the curl result has Access-Control-Allow-Origin: * then it means the nginx changes worked.
