Installed ok, but stumped with SSL

  • I’ve just done a manual installation of WordPress on my Domain.com hosted website. Everything went fine, but I’d really prefer to use SSL to login to the admin section of the site. Now, here I’m totally stumped. My site’s FTP has a httpdocs folder (where WordPress is installed) and a httpsdocs folder, but surely I don’t need to have my WordPress installed in both?

    I’ve Googled around and read the documentation, it mentions virtual hosts but I see no way of setting that up in my hosting control panel. Other sites suggest htaccess edits, but my hosts don’t let me access this. I’m really lost. At the moment if I go to the https version of the login page I just get 404 file not found.

    Can anyone point me in the right direction please?
