Problems with SSL

Other Information

I have recently joined Infinityfree and uploaded my first site yesterday. Uploading my website was a breeze as the uploading instructions were very clear-cut and easy to follow.

After a few hours, I went through the exercise of installing the SSL Certificate. I followed all the instructions given in the Knowledge Base and also saw several videos on YouTube. After struggling for many hours, I did get the Private Key and Certificate. I uploaded both of them.

But my website still does not show the closed padlock. It still shows up as insecure.

While I am reasonably good at making simple websites on an amateur level, I am not good at the technical stuff.

How can I be sure that the Key and Certificate have indeed been uploaded and kicked in?

So, if someone can please help me with this issue, I’ll be ever so grateful. Thanks in advance.

You got SSL working, congrats! Just one more step to force it upon your visitors.


Thanks Greenreader9.

I have dealt with .htaccess files before.

Can you please tell me what I need to change in the code and where to upload it. Does it go in the root directory or in the htdocs with all the other stuff?

The code I got was:
RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTP:X-Forwarded-Proto} =http
RewriteRule (.*) https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [L,R=301]

Your help will be appreciated.

Looks like all I needed to change was the domain name. I think it is working now.
