Is nubuilder ready for switching to HTTPS?

Unread postby absalom » Tue Apr 20, 2021 4:52 pm

Hi, I am considering using nubuilder for business purpose; I found a hosting service providing HTTPS and I started reading its documentation, which says that I have to make sure the installed website is ready for HTTPS.
Is it straightforward to enable HTTPS on nubuilder or will I encounter trouble?

There is no extra or special settings needed specifically for nuBuilder for HTTPS

If you encounter any errors try this site, it's useful to track down the cause of why your site may not be secure even if you are using https.

It's usually external links that are still http will cause your site be shown as not secure without the padlock icon but https showing in the address bar.

I believe you can force all of your pages to use HTTPS. To do this, you will need to modify your .htaccess file. (or create one if it doesn't exist)

Using the Code Editor in the File Manager, add these lines to the beginning of the .htaccess file.

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