How to Enable HTTPS on SocialEngine 4

The best way to make your SocialEngine network more secure is to enable HTTPS (Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure) once you have bought your SSL Cert and activated it via your cPanel edit your .htaccess

Alter your .htaccess file to force SSL by adding these lines below this line ‘RewriteBase /':

RewriteCond %{HTTPS} off

RewriteRule (.*) https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [R,L]

That’s it! The .htaccess change will force https on all pages, you will then see https should be in the URL.

If you need help with doing this don’t hesitate to contact me.

    Hi Andrew,
    Thanks for this great article, very helpful, however, is it possible to enable https only on specific URLs? Because, we want only to secure specific areas of the website, such as /settings, /payment etc.
