Is there a way to change MyBB from http to https after it's installed? - Zerxal - 2019-01-28

MyBB wouldn't let me install with SSL at first so I installed without it, but I have it now. Is there a way I can switch to https?

Update your homeurl and bburl (just paste that in the search form inside the settings module) to use the https instead of http. Then, what I do is force https and redirect http calls using some .htaccess rule. The following is not where I got the information but seems close to my setup.

 The information from the first part of your post is for Apache setups.

It's different for niginx setups, so it must be pointed out that the nginx portion is in the 2nd link you provided.

Just saying...
