SSL noob & WP mid-experience here. I registered a Lets Encrypt certificate for www.example.com and example.com.

There are three scenarios that I need help with:

Note: = placeholder for my server IP

  1. https://example.com/* = Works perfectly
  2. www.example.com/* = Redirects to* --> I want this to redirect to https://www.example.com/*
  3. example.com/* = Redirects to* --> I want this to redirect to https://example.com/*

I am using Wordpress, ubuntu 18, and apache. Things I tried:

  • I tried the define function in wp_config.php. Didn't work
  • I made sure the site url and wordpress url in the wp dashboard was correct.
  • I don't want to use .htaccess
  • I have access to apache files, so I can edit apache2.conf and site.conf. I tried Redirect and RedirectMatch.
