Karlog-IT Simple SSL

Description

A simple WordPress plugin that redirects your site to HTTPS

Simple SSL

With Simple SSL you can enable HTTPS redirect for your website that is running on a Apache-based webserver.
It is required to have a valid SSL certificate for your site that we do not provide.

What does the plugin do?

It configures your .htaccess file which is a configuration file used by Apache.
We add the following setting that configures your website to redirect all traffic to HTTPS.

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTPS} !=on
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [L,R=301,NE]

We also automatically update your general settings to use HTTPS instead of HTTP.
You can easily enable and disable all this from the admin page.

FAQ

I cant access my website after i have enabled the plugin?

This is because you don\’t have a valid SSL certificate required for your website.
The site now redirects all HTTP traffic to HTTPS, and it can\’t do that when no certificate is provided.

How do i manually revert the plugin changes?

  • First, make sure you can access your site with either FTP or source control.
    .htaccess
  • Go to your project directory and open your .htaccess file.
  • Remove all lines between \’# BEGIN HTTPS DIRECT\’ and \’# END HTTPS DIRECT\’.
    General Settings
  • Go to your wp-config.php, also in your project directory.
  • Add the following lines to the file (With your domain name).
    define( \’WP_HOME\’, \’http://{YOUR DOMAIN NAME}\’ );
    define( \’WP_SITEURL\’, \’http://{YOUR DOMAIN NAME}\’ );
