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 ?

    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 and 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 –

    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.
