Support » Fixing WordPress » SSL encryption – website now unaccesible

    Help! I tried to encrypt my wordpress website enhance-cs.com and now I am unable to connect to my website.

    The page says that the website is temporarily unavailable and/or overly taxed.

    Through a website I started following a step-by-step guide to get my website to have an SSL encryption. The first step was:

    Go to Settings>General and change the “Site URL” and the “Base URL” to https:// instead of http://.

    What do I have to do? I cannot access my website anymore so it is impossible to change it back.

  • If you can get into your database, you can change it back to http. Do you have access to your hosting account?

    Not sure which page of instructions you followed?

    How to Install a SSL Certificate On Your WordPress Site
    The easy way is to use the Really Simple SSL plugin (mentioned on the page) – basically because it does all the work for you! And it is very lightweight.

    Re getting the site back..
    You need to look for the table – “wp_options” in the database.

    There are two items to change..

    1. Search for “siteurl” within the “option_name” column and click the “Edit” link on the same row. Change it back to http
    2) Search for “home” within the “option_name” column and click the “Edit” link on the same row. Change it back to http.

    Thank you for your suggestions! It is operating now. I need to arrange the ssl certificate through another channel I have been told, that is why it went wrong.

    Glad to hear you got it sorted!
