Step 4. Under your General Settings, make sure to specify HTTPS for your WordPress Address URL and Site Address URL.

(Note: Replace wordpress.yourdomain.com with your actual WordPress URL.)wp-site-address

Step 5. Search for WordPress HTTPS  (SSL). Click Install Now.

Step 6. Once the plugin is installed, click Activate Plugin.

Once you pull up your WordPress site, it should now show the HTTPS in the URL.

Note: After doing the above mentioned, there may be some elements – like hardcoded links, that may not get the SSL lock. You may need to check the backend scripts and make sure that all URLs are using the HTTPS. However, you may request for our technical engineers to do the Force HTTP-to-HTTPS Website Redirection – includes Internal Conversion Link S$250 per request.
