    I hope you have added below code in your htaccess file if not then please edit it with below code:

    Code:
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteCond %{HTTPS} off
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [L,R=301]
    </IfModule>

  • You can use Really Simple SLL plugin. I was using this plugin a lot of times and it worked great every time, so you don't have to worry about viruses - I didn't notice any negative effects.

    Hi. If yours is a WordPress site and you have already taken SSL and still the the http version is not redirecting to https, you might check WordPress settings and change the website address to https version. Also still in case you have the same issue, you should check the links on your page. There might be some links that are coded in http instead of https.

    I had to manually edit my .htaccess file (instructions above) and also use the Really Simple SLL plugin. After doing both of these things then everything worked OK.


    Oh, remember to change the URL in the General Settings too.
