Running behind ssl

Recommended Posts

Well, to start, what web server are you using? Apache, Nginx?

Have you already purchased a SSL certificate?

Do you know how to configure SSL on your web server and just need help setting it up with IP.Board, or do you need help configuring your web server to use SSL as well?

Start by reviewing the information here,

As far as IP.Board goes, you need to change your board URL in your conf_global.php file to the new "https" URL. If you have a custom URL set for your upload directory, you'll need to update that as well. (Same with IP.Downloads' URL settings)

If you want to support YouTube embeds on your forum, you'll need to update the YouTube media code to use HTTPS. To do this, once logged into your AdminCP, go to Look & Feel, Post Content, Manage Media Tag. Edit the YouTube media tag and replace the Media Replacement HTML with this;
