See http://pkp.sfu.ca/support/forum/viewtopic.php?f=40&t=11626 --

Defining base_url[...] directives currently requires a fixed protocol (e.g. http or https). Mixing this in http configuration with force_login_ssl causes subrequests of https pages to go out with http urls; this is a bad idea and also doesn't work.

Solution: apply the attached patch in lib/pkp.

Thereafter, you should be able to configure protocol-relative base_url[...] directives, e.g.:

base_url[myJournal] = //index.php/myJournal

(beginning with // indicates a protocol-relative URL, implying http: or https: at the beginning, depending on the current context)
