This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.

  • Before configuring WordPress to use HTTPS, did you.... (1) purchase an SSL certificate, (2) configure the CSR, (3) submit the CSR, (4) approve the SSL certificate, and then (5) install and enable the certificate you received on to your server? These are all things you need to do before you can use HTTPS for your website. – iglvzx Jun 9 '14 at 5:00
  • The OP may be using an SSL certificate provided by their hosting company. Mine has this so I don't need to configure anything. You also need to upload your WordPress site to the correct folder on your hosting. Many hosts have a separate htdocs for SSL enabled sites. – Kinnectus Jun 9 '14 at 6:25
