[resolved] Adding an SSL certificate on multisite (4 posts)

    I run a multisite. Today an SSL certificate was added and I am using the wordpress https plugin.

    When users log into their site they are taken to a https:// page so that works fine.

    What I was hoping for was that the whole site would be https://

    I want every page and every blog post on every site to be https://

    I am using a domain mapping plugin for these domains, eg

    http://thehealthylifestyleclinic.influencer.biz goes to

    http://healthylifestyleclinic.co.uk and I want it to go to

    https://healthylifestyleclinic.co.uk

    I assumed when I paid for my wildcard certificate that this is what would happen but they tell me I have to "change the SiteURL by editing the database, the option to change is in the wp_options table"

    I went into wp_options via myphpadmin and changed the site url of the main url to https:// but still it is going to http://

    Can someone help me work this out. My hosting company and the ssl certificate supplier both say I have to work this out via wordpress - it isn't their issue

    thank you in advance

  2. A wildcard cert usually means *.domain.com and not ANYdomain.com. You have to pay for each site per domain in most cases.

    I went into wp_options via myphpadmin and changed the site url of the main url to https:// but still it is going to http://

    Change both home AND siteurl values.

    Thank you for your help.

    I just changed both ga_default_domain and home to https

    still http://

    Wondering what else I can try.

    re ANYdomain.com
    All the domain names under the multisite appear under the *domain.com listing which is what made me think they were all covered as domains.

    I have to park each domain on my hosting account to get domain mapping to work and it shows them as being under *mydomain but if that isn't the case then there is not much I can do.

    I at least want people who use my domain url extension to have https if it covers all the sites.domain.com

    Well looks like I got it working on my main domain and the sub domains.
    I only wish I knew what it was that worked in the end.
    Tried so many different things and suddenly there it was.
