2.13.2.7. Setting up HTTPS in Joomla!

To complete the basic setup of Joomla! to work over HTTPS, do the following:

  1. Check the presence of an installed SSL certificate in SSL settings... If the certificate is missing, install his.
  2. Enable SSL support in the admin panel of the site itself:
    1. Openup Adminpanel site.
    2. Go to the section "System → General settings» («System → Global Configuration»).
    3. Switch to the "Server» («Server»).
    4. Opposite "Enable SSL» («Force HTTPS") Select"Whole site» («Entire Site»).
    5. Save changes by clicking "Save» («Save") or "Save and close» («Save & Close») In the upper left corner of the page.
  3. Openup config file and find the line with the parameter $live_site:
    public $live_site = 'http://example.com/';

    Replace the HTTP address specified in it with HTTPS so that it looks like this:

    public $live_site = 'https://example.com/';

    Leave the line unchanged if the site address is not specified:

    public $live_site = '';
  4. Turnon redirect to HTTPS.
  5. Check the site is working.

In most cases, the described actions are enough for the site to work over HTTPS.
