Hi Mathias,
since this a question about MapServer (and HTTP/https protocols on a Server)

the MapServer user list  <mailto:mapserver-users at lists.osgeo.org>
mapserver-users at lists.osgeo.org is a slightly better place for it (and not
this PostGIS list ). 
Here some hints for you though: 
The HTTP and HTTPS protocols are what a web server (server computer plus
HTTP Server software) enables - see
It seems from your example URL that you are using Windows as an operating
system - what Web Server software are you using (MS IIS e.g. or Apache) ? 
Overall you will need to configure whatever software you are using to serve
HTTP. In case of HTTPS (secure protocol
https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/HyperText_Transfer_Protocol_Secure ) you will
also need to obtain and use a SSL certificate. One good option for a free
one is Let's Encrypt see https://letsencrypt.org/
I hope this helps you to get started

Subject: [postgis-users] HOw to connect to Mapserver with an https protocol

Using Mapserver 7.4, I render a WFS that is accessible with some regular URL
like "http://blabla.fr/cg-bin/mapserv.exe?MAP=..."

A user wants to use this WFS in another application web that needs a httpS
I am not familiar with internet protocols so I don't know where to start :
is it a Mapserver configuration or a server (windows server R12)
configuration to setup ?
