Force SSL


If you are using SSL certificates and you want to redirect all traffic from HTTP to HTTPS, then the plugin Force SSL is what you need.


  1. Upload the force-ssl folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  2. Activate the plugin via the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.


What should I do if I activated the plugin and my website stopped working?

Most likely your hosting is not configured properly. To fix this, connect to your hosting via FTP client, go to the directory /wp-content/plugins/ and rename folder with name force-ssl.
