« on: April 28, 2023, 09:40:05 AM »
here are the steps to enable SSL on WordPress through cPanel:

1.Log in to your cPanel account.
2.Scroll down to the Security section and click on the "SSL/TLS" icon.
3.Under the "Install and Manage SSL for your site (HTTPS)" section, click on the "Manage SSL Sites" option.
4.Select the domain name you want to enable SSL for from the drop-down menu.
5.In the "Domain" field, the system will automatically fill in the domain name.
6.In the "Certificate" field, choose "Auto SSL" if you have already installed a free SSL certificate using cPanel's AutoSSL feature. If you have purchased an SSL certificate, choose "Browse Certificates" and select the certificate from the drop-down menu.
7.In the "Key" field, choose "Auto-Generate" if you have installed a free SSL certificate using cPanel's AutoSSL feature. If you have purchased an SSL certificate, choose "Browse Key" and select the key from the drop-down menu.
8.Click the "Install Certificate" button.

Once you have installed the SSL certificate, you can update your WordPress site to use HTTPS by following these steps:

1. Log in to your WordPress dashboard.
2.Go to the "Settings" menu and select "General."
3.In the "WordPress Address (URL)" and "Site Address (URL)" fields, replace "http://" with "https://".
4. Click the "Save Changes" button.

That's it! Your WordPress site should now be using HTTPS and displaying a secure padlock icon in the browser address bar.
