Secure page

Sorry to ask this basic q - I just couldnt find a thread that addresses it. My website says ‘not secure’. What do I need to do to change this?

Thanks…that seems to be about Carosel…but the bit that is relevant - is it this?

This is some kind of file I add. I dont understand completely. The file should have that text in it?

You need to tell the browser to load the site using https.

You can do this by adding a .htaccess file into your public folder adding the following…

RewriteEngine On RewriteCond %{ENV:HTTPS} !=on RewriteRule (.*) https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [R=301,L]

Yes the htaccess file bit is the important bit but also there’s a freeway action “https cdn help” that you can use.

Hi Steve,

Getting your website hosted over https (secure http) is something you need to ask your web provider about. There might be some additional things you will need to do in Freeway after that: essentially, make sure all your links to other pages have an https:// prefix (not an http:// prefix).

I called my ISP who host my site and all I had to do was make a C Panel change to instruct it to force redirection to https. Works fine now. As simple as that.
