I’d like to try to secure with SSL all my development WordPress Multisite installation for testing purposes. I just did it in a sinlge WordPress site but I have (always!) more doubts when it comes down to Multisite.
Reading topics and comments in this forum I believe that one SSL certificate should be enough because I have subfolders.
To enable SSL for all my single WordPress site I changed http into https in Settings –> General:
WordPress Address (URL) – https://localhost:44300/
Site Address (URL) – https://localhost:44300/
(well, 44300 is the default port used by WebMatrix when SSL enabled)
I thought to do the same with Multisite but, since I can’t do this change in Network Settings, do I have to do it in Sites –> Edit Site –> Settings for every subsite (Siteurl, Home, Fileupload url)?
Also, since the multisite ‘uses’ port 80 (http://localhost/, I might be wrong but this is required by Multisite-Subfolders, isn’t it?), should I use the standard port 443 when SSL is enabled? Or I can do changes like:
http://localhost/ –> https://localhost:44301/
http://localhost/es-ES/ –> https://localhost:443001/es-ES/
http://localhost/fr-FR/ –> https://localhost:443001/fr-FR/
I’m asking this because when I enable SSL on the IIS Express server through WebMatrix, it binds everything to ports like 44300 and above, therefore if I can’t use other port than 443 I need to redo the binding.
Thanks a lot.
