SSL Certificate install

Recommended Posts

I've installed a SSL on my server. What do I have to do to make sure PW is using the certificate?

My host told me that Wordpress have a button build in the CMS to include the SSL. What methode is PW using?

That's really a strange way for the host to answer, because ssl is really not related to the cms (besides maybe generating https links and redirecting). But enabling ssl does need to be setup on the webserver.

For redirection to https see the .htaccess file and urls in processwire are most often relative ones, so there's probably not much to do on the url generation side.

I might be wrong, but there is an option on the home template, right? You can force to use only HTTPS. But I don’t know if this passes the option down to child pages

Support for HTTPS is enabled by default in Processwire.

Making SSL work with your hosting is a Certificate issue.

Check out the letsencrypt.org website for more info.

An SSL Certificate is a text file with encrypted data that you install on your server so that you can secure/encrypt sensitive communications between your site and your customers. ... You can also download your SSL Certificate in your DigiCert account.
