    Hello everybody there,

    I am having my own wordpress site and a dedicated IP alloted too. I had installed self-signed SSL certificate using my CPANEL. I had also changed the wordpress General settings to use https instead of http.

    Now, the SSL certificate is not working rather showing the error ssl_error_rx_record_too_long.

    I dont know why this is happening. Everything got fine, ssl installation etc. etc. But, now this problem.

    Please anyone help...

    I am using cpanel friend. I successfully installed the certificate through my cpanel. The information provided by you is very informative, but the process is too much typical. I don't know much about all the facts and scenarios specified in the link you provided.

    Will you please provide a simple method.

  5. Will you please provide a simple method.

    That is the simple method. Although, using my psychic powers of deduction, I sense a video from Figaro on the horizon... :)

    You need to confirm that SSL is configured properly. Then after you make a backup of your wp-config.php file, make the changes in that article to wp-config.php by adding

    define('FORCE_SSL_LOGIN', true);


    define('FORCE_SSL_ADMIN', true);

    You can test if SSL is setup correctly by going to https://your-blog-url-here/readme.html If that page loads via SSL then you should be fine.

    And if it doesn't then you still have that wp-config.php backup and can put it back.
