How To Enable SSL on Your WordPress Site

Before you Begin you Need the Following:
Enabling SSL on Your WordPress Site
  1. Log into your site at http://yourdomainname.com/wp-login.php.
  2. Once you are on the admin dashboard, click on Settings.
  3. In the WordPress Address (URL) box, replace http:// with https://.
  4. In the Site Address (URL) box, replace http:// with https://.
NOTE: If for any reason you are unable to reach your site to make these edits, please contact our support team by submitting a support ticket.
 
Optional Edits:
  1. Open an FTP session to your site.
  2. Edit your wp-config.php file and add define('FORCE_SSL_ADMIN', true);.
  3. This will force SSL for both site logins and admin access. This is the most secure option for your site.
  4. Save your wp-config.php file and re-upload it to the server.
