changing URL because of SSL certificate

Hi all,

After some years... I tried to change some text on my site and I needed to log in. I did and I changed the password in settings. Fine, and then I needed to update KOKEN, so I did, only I was asked to get a SSL certificate otherwise it couldn't work (URL). So I did and now I have some back loops and I can't change my URL from "http://" into "https://"... So what and where can I do, so I don't get an API error on my screen? My website is of now, i believe... I looked at your website with FAQ and solutions, but i'm a nono on this...

Please provide me with a great tip I did not find...

Many, many thanks!

Have you edited the .htaccess file to use HTTPS? Connect to your server via FTP. Open the .htaccess file in a text editor. At the top of the file are instructions about activating https for admin pages. You can also change to / instead of /admin/ so it works for the whole site. Here’s what it should look like:

  1. Uncomment the following block to force SSL when accessing /admin
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} /
    RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} 80
    RewriteRule ^ https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [L,R=301]
