Https (again) and warehoused files and images


(Barrie McDermid) #1

I’m changing hosts to one that supports the Lets Encrypt certificates. All of my images are warehoused with flickr and all of my download files are stored on google drive. Will everything work okay?

As far as HTTPS goes if you reference an image or download with https:// you should have no problem with your SSL.

I guess google drive and Flickr ‘should’ be okay.

Thanks for taking the time to reply.

When you set your link in RW to the image does it start with https:// ?


(Barrie McDermid) #5

Yes. Every picture is warehoused at Flickr and every download file is hosted on google drive.

You can also force https by using your server’s htaccess file. That will also force old incoming links to secure. Just search web for “redirect to https” and/or “force https htacess” for tons of how to’s. This works great for me.
