Has anyone done a migration from http to https for their symbiostock site? I would really like to see a step by step approach as my research into this migration seems to come up with many different views on how to go about it. A Symbiostock focused version would be very helpful!

I am with Bluehost and just move my site to https 1 month ago. It was very straightforward if you are with them and its free with wordpress sites. https://my.bluehost.com/cgi/help/473
After finished the migration, I use Really Simple SSL to finalize my site with only a single click.
Make sure to change cron job to https as I noticed the uploaded image is not automatically processed and figured out the issue.July 23, 2017 at 3:14 pm #31110
Hey Steve – I’ve learned the hard way that an undocumented way to do it very easily is as follows:
1) Go to your settings and change the URL from http to https for both the site and home.
2) Edit your wp-config.php and add this line below the debug line:
define('WP_DEBUG', false); $_SERVER['HTTPS'] = 'on';
You should now be HTTPS as long as you have a certificate issued for your URL via your cPanel control panel. For information on ordering an SSL via the hosting system (all perpetually free with our hosting) use this guide:
Once you do those 3 steps, your site should be fully SSL. The only exceptions are that some of your theme elements or pages may have hard coded full non-relative URLs to images. In other words, instead of:
you will have
As you should rarely ever use full URLs on your site and always reference locally, you may have to change these, and that must be done manually otherwise your visitors will get a warning that says “this page is secured but not fully secure because it contains insecure elements”.
I’ve tried various plugins and stuff and nothing quite works as seamlessly as this.July 24, 2017 at 4:02 am #31111
