At the end, I have used the email with the .zip file containing 2 files, a file with extention .ca and another one with extention .crt, both files were sent by me to the hosting provider,
here a guy from India told that the company will charge me a $25 usd for the installation service.
After, I have received a link like this to show that the process of installation has been completed by the hosting provider … and everything is running correctly:
I am using wordpress to run the website of the best Spanish program in Nicaragua 😀 , to activate the SSL mode under wordpress login page, only,
I have applied a configuracion in the wp-config.php file, adding a line: define(‘FORCE_SSL_ADMIN’, true);
But, to get always HTTPS during the URL resolving service in the entire site, I have used a couple of plugins, the first one is for get a re-writing in the .htaccess file and force it to change to HTTPS, I don’t feel confidence with the Apache’s .htaccess scripts (by the moment), by this I have used this plugin, but I will recommend you to learn about .htaccess
and do some testing in localhost and be able to do this manually ( I will do that for example).
Well, after apply the first plugin, all looks apparently okay, but, I have found some “alert messages” in the console of the firefox browser, some messages telling something like “there are some elements not secured correctly”, then I have started to googling again and I have found this service http://www.whynopadlock.com/, the interesting thing here is that show all elements that are causing an issue. To resolve it, I have used another plugin (to re-write again the .htaccess file and include all elements used under the load of the pages).
Here is the list of my two suggested plugins:
To force a redirect from HTTP to HTTPS used is: WordPress Force HTTPS
To fix the problem with the SSL and the images is: fix-ssl-non-ssl-links.zip
After this was to find inside of my SSL certificate provider a nice SSL seal to show in the front end of the website, depending of the company that you have contracted this task can vary.
With the code of my new SSL seal, I have placed it under the widget area in my wordpress panels in the back end.
And that’s all in this adventure with the SSL Certificates, and … a CMS … in this case WordPress.
