I have a domain that loads over HTTP. It being a single-page, static website, conversion to HTTPS hasn’t been a priority. I have now added a subdomain for discourse, and curiously it loads over HTTPS.
How can Discourse use HTTPS, when I’ve not invested the time to convert my domain to HTTPS?
Could this HTTP/HTTPS disparity cause problems for my Discourse users?
The Meta post https://meta.discourse.org/t/setting-up-https-support-with-lets-encrypt/40709 says “This guide is only for existing installs where HTTPS is not enabled. Following the official setup guide automatically enables HTTPS by default.” I followed that official guide when adding my Discourse, so I might presume that Meta post is non-applicable.
