Support » Plugin: WordPress HTTPS (SSL) » Testing with a self-signed certificate

  • Resolved pouyan.aminian


    Dear all,

    I am developing a website for a non-profit organization. The website is currently offline and I am using Microsoft Webmatrix to test/edit it. As part of the project, I need to create a secure donation/purchase form for the website.

    I have installed WordPressHTTPS plug-in and configured it to force SSL on certain pages. I have also enabled the SSL option on Webmatrix to test the plug-in using an IIS Express self-signed certificate. However, when I try to access the page it does not load at all (it idles for a very long time and then I get a connection reset error).

    I was wondering if any of you guys have encountered this problem before and know of any solutions.

    Best Regards,

    Hi Pouyan,

    I have no experience using Webmatrix. Have you tried visiting the pages via HTTPS without the plugin being activated?
