Hey there! We’re relatively new to discourse and my boss has given me the task of enabling https for Discourse. I turned on “use https” but I didn’t have much success… nothing seemed to change and I reach this error page when trying to access our forum using https:
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
The checkbox did warn you that you need to have an SSL cert installed and working before turning it on. I guess you skipped that part?
I did see that, but I wasn’t sure exactly how to go about doing that. Do I need a new SSL certificate just for discourse or can I use the one that we’re using for our existing domain?
The other thing I should ask is if we choose not to use https, can we redirect users who try and access https to the regular https site?
Oh I see that you’re one of our hosted customers. In that case you can go to your admin dashboard (/admin) and there’s a button to request SSL be installed for you.
