Installing a SSL Certificate in WordPress is a two-step process. The first step is to install a certificate authority (CA) on your server.
The second step is to install the certificate on your WordPress site.
To install a certificate authority on your server, you first need to install a certificate management tool, such as Apache or IIS. Once you have installed the certificate management tool, you need to create a certificate request.
This request will contain the information needed to generate a certificate. The following list provides the information that is needed in a certificate request:.
The name of your site
The name of the CA that issued the certificate
The dates that the certificate will expire
The name of the domain that the certificate will be valid for
The name of the certificate file
To create a certificate request, you can use a variety of tools, such as the Certificate Manager in IIS or the Certificate Authority Wizard in Apache. Once you have created the certificate request, you need to send it to the CA.
The CA will then generate the certificate and send it to you.
To install the certificate on your WordPress site, you first need to upload the certificate file to your site. You can upload the certificate file using a variety of methods, such as FTP or SFTP.
Once you have uploaded the certificate file, you need to create a certificate configuration file. The certificate configuration file contains the information needed to install the certificate on your WordPress site. The following list provides the information that is needed in the certificate configuration file:.
The name of the site
The path to the certificate file
The password for the CA
The WordPress site settings allow you to add a SSL certificate to your site. To add a SSL certificate to your site, go to the WordPress site settings and click on the SSL certificate tab. You will then need to enter the following information:
The WordPress site settings will then allow you to select the certificate that you have uploaded.
