using https on a wordpress site (3 posts)

    Is it possible to fully lock down a wordpress site using SSL???? I'm not a newbie at using wordpress but I'm no Jedi Master either. I have placed https on all links throughout and I still can't get the site to fully lock down. I have all required elements in place, the dedicated IP, full SSL certificate. I've made php test files that lock down with no errors so I know this is a wordpress issue. Any help would be very appreciated.

    Link to site: https://fucstic.com/fucstic/

    Sorry about the link name, I'm only the developer not the owner of it.

    Hi! To force https(SSL) without having to use any weird plugins or anything (if you are using an Apache server), open your .htaccess file and add this to it:

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteCond %{HTTPS} off
    RewriteRule (.*) https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI}

    That will force SSL on EVERY page. Also remember to restart Apache when you are done:
    /etc/init.d/httpd restart
    Hope that helps :)
