Re: problems with ssl cert

Hey Saj,

Best and quickest way to check your SSL Certificate connectivity is on something like : https://www.sslshopper.com/ssl-checker.html

 

This will tell you if it's installed correctly and setup properly on the server.  If you're getting all green check marks, that means your SSL Certificate is installed correctly, but you may not have the proper redirect on your website to have traffic route to https://.  If there is an error with the certificate it should tell you on that query in more detail.


Hope it helps.

Re: problems with ssl cert

generate it on godaddy site under csr screen, then under install and manage i select the saved cert and autofill, it does not populate and gives me a big X and obviously does not work.:

am i doing something wrong?, as i am following the instructions i think.

 

Re: problems with ssl cert

i get all green ticks on that link except for: "None of the common names in the certificate match the name that was entered (www.xxxx.de). You may receive an error when accessing this site in a web browser. Learn more about name mismatch errors."

 

thanks

Re: problems with ssl cert

Once Premium SSL is installed, Mix Content comes first and you have to check. Mix content means the urls or images or any content that is still staying at http. If this happens then Page Source will first know who is the content.
 I would like to thank Godaddy whose article helped me to get the Http To HTTPS redirection when I correctly installed the Secure Layer Certificate, for more information, you can read that article. I fixed it so thanks godaddy again. You can see that SSL is activated correctly on HindiMePadhe.

Re: problems with ssl cert

Download plugin called simple ssl on wordpress to fix everything. This will work only if you have installed ssl certificate on your wordpress hosting.
