Solved Help me from changing from HTTP to HTTPS

Post by sisterval on April 16th 2020, 7:56 pm

Please could someone advise me from changing from HTTP to HTTPS in my Admin panel. There is a message in the Admin panel and to click on the button to change it. Is it complicated to do? I am 75 years old and very reluctant to try pressing anything as I am not technically minded. Your help would be very much appreciated, thank you.

Hello,

If you press the button, it will do all the work for you. The most you will have to do is change any links or images that are not Forumotion or Servimg to https. That is all you will have to do, our system will take care of the rest Wink.

You need to look for those links in your css sheet, templates and javascript codes

your forum will generate errors
the images that are upload with serving our hosting service will automatically change, you need to change manually links that are from other sources

You will get an unsecure icon in your browsers.  Everything on a page has to have secure (https) links.

Hey @sisterval,

Welcome to Support Forumotion! After installation the SSL certificate your forum will only allow links from secure websites (
Code:
https://
) so you will have to use our platform Servimg, for example, to host images (or on a secure website) to ensure that the images is load!


Cordially,
pedxz.
