Here I am going to share one quick article about to use SSL on WordPress site.HTTPS is highly recommended when transaction is processed in your site so to secure transactions,SSL is require in site.
To activate SSL on your WordPress blog is very simple. Let’s see how to activate SSL in wordpess
1. Open your
wp-config.php file and paste the following code
Above code will secure WordPress logins and he entire wp-admin area
2. Go to your WordPress General Settings and change the WordPress Address (URL) and the
Site Address (URL) from HTTP to HTTPS.
That’s it.you are done with steps to force WordPress to use SSL encryption.
Keep In Mind:
Sometimes first page for wordpress works fine but the
permalinks are not working after the set up you have done for SSL explained above.so for that issue check your server apache configuration and verify that for the directory in which you have store your WordPress installation ,following settings enabled
< Directory var/www/ >
</ Directory >
if not, add above lines into your server virtual host and check permalink structure will work fine.
