I have a problem



Our Website is current until 2019 and shows Secured on home Dreamhost Dash.
But when we go to our Website itself it said Https is Unsecured which is more chasing problems.
Give do we fix this?


After adding your SSL certificate, you will have to force https in your .htaccess file or by changing the URLs in WordPress. We have a help article here: https://help.dreamhost.com/hc/en-us/articles/115003505112-How-to-force-your-site-to-redirect-to-https-SSL-

Hey, winterswan127:

I’m not certain how familiar you are with building web pages from scratch. If you’re an old guy, like me, this procedure will do the trick:

If you want site-wide encryption for every page you create in your domain, build a file named “.htaccess” in your Home directory which contains these three lines of (7-bit) ASCII code:

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

I built the file .htaccess on my hard disk using Kate, the KDE text editor program. If you’re running some version of Windows, use Notepad, or Wordpad (o/p “text only” file format). Then I just used my FTP client to copy .htaccess to the /Home (lowest level) directory at my website.

If you don’t know what “FTP” is all about, go the @ohnolo route. If you do know what FTP is, my instructions tell you all you need to know to get 'er done.
