Support » Plugin: WooCommerce » SSL & WooCommerce

  • I’m developing a site on my local machine running WAMP and have installed the latest version of WooCommerce 3.07

    I notice that the system status is reporting – “Your store is not using HTTPS”.
    I’m going to be sending customers to the Paypal page, so I don’t know if SSL is essential, but I accept it’s probably a good idea.

    I just want to check the procedure for transferring the site to a live environment that has a SSL cert installed.

    I’m planning on using a free certificate from Certbot.

    Once the certificate is installed on my domain, is it just a matter of uploading the files to the site and changing the urls from http://localhost/wordpress to https://mydomain.com ?

    I’ve transferred local sites to live environments before, but not where there is a SSL cert in place. I’m trying to avoid any nasty surprises!

    Hope someone can confirm.

  • I put this together to discuss converting to HTTPS. If you are comfortable wth SQL there is a page with the commands you will need to run. (note depending on how you build your site you may need to do the commands for both yourdomain.com and http://www.yourdomain.com If you are not comfortable a plugin is listed, but it may impact performance a bit.

    Hello Peter,

    Thanks for the link. I’ve been using this script for moving sites from local to live environment – http://interconnectit.com/products/search-and-replace-for-wordpress-databases/

    So if I’m changing all http urls to https, it should continue to work for me yes?

    I don’t want to use a plugin if I can avoid it. 🙂

    Hi Myles,

    That script looks great.

    Yes, mostly. Some themes and page-builders keep items like logos & slider images in serialized format, for those the safest way is to replace the images 1 by one in theme customization or with the page-builder.
