Should I be using https ?

Reuben Irving shared this question 3 years ago

I just tried installing WP in the https:// location but it doesn't work. I know this was an issue on a previous install.

I took the 's' off and now it all works fine. But surely better to be secure? Is there something else you need to do to make an install in the https locations work?

Unless you've ordered an SSL and dedicated IP, you would need to use a non-SSL (http://) URL to access the site.

https:// will only work once you have SSL and the dedicated IP.

In the future we hope to offer SNI so the dedicated IP is not required but we're a little way off on that currently.
