Full Version: Change protocol to HTTPS [SOLVED]
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
I am not quite sure how to totally change to HTTPS, bought a certificate, installed it on my server,etc..

But when I installed MyBB I remember there I had an option to select "Http" or "Https".
The thing is, can I still do that right now?

In chromium/chrome for example the forum looks totally messed, a few images display.. mostly its a blank page.

I am not sure if this is related to MyBB anymore, Its quite obvious that its the certificate itself.
But I still have a hope that there is a setting that I've missed.

Edit : Someone told me that I need to change the http protocol to https. Can't find anything by google searching about this, only plugins. :/
Navigate to Site Details under the Configuration tab in your Admin Control Panel.

Change HTTP to HTTPS.

Make sure any images you've added is loaded through HTTPS as well as anything in your headerinclude.

Use inspect element to see if you're having any other issues.
edit: delayed response

admin panel >> configuration (settings) >> Site Details >> Board URL >> change http:// to https://

also you can try forcing https protocol through .htaccess file
RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} 80
RewriteRule ^(.*)$$1 [R,L]

Thanks guys, you both saved my day.
I already saw that answer in another topic, tried it but forgot to save the settings which made me think is not working. -.-
Now since I saw the same answer, tried it again. This time its worked. Big Grin
