Using SSL (HTTPS)

Community in the Cloud customers can submit a support ticket to request SSL/HTTPS be enabled for your community.

Applies to self-hosted customers only

You will need to obtain an SSL certificate and install it on your server before following these instructions

To enable SSL/HTTPS for your community, please edit your conf_global.php file, changing 'http' to 'https' in your URL, then save.

From:

$INFO['base_url']			=	'http://www.yourdomain.com';

To:

$INFO['base_url']			=	'https://www.yourdomain.com';

(it's possible that this parameter may be called board_url in your configuration)

 

Then log into the AdminCP > Support > 'Something isn't working correctly'. Proceed with the first step, this clears out your cache, and will allow all items to then be linked from HTTPS.

Please also keep in mind that all advertisements or any code you may have added to the site or theme must be served from https or the cert will show an error for your users. 

The next step is to re-enter your license key in your admincp to update your url from http to https on your license.
