I have two http websites made about 10 years ago with RW. I have gone through some of the related messages on this forum but I have difficulty understanding the technical language. As far as I have understood:
First, I need to get an SSL certificate installed. I assume I need to get this from my web host. My sites are hosted by Little Oak. How do I get this certificate? Can I go to my account control panel and “install” it ? Do I have to email them to do so?
Then, I need to change my Rapidweaver document file. My website was made with RW 5.4 !!! (Come on, it has served my purpose, so far!). I assume I’ll need to upgrade to the latest RW version (Will it load my RW doc?). Once it is loaded, what exactly do I change to make it https? (I may not be able to use the old theme, etc, right? I may have to redo the site?)
Then, I test, using one of the tools available. I don’t have externally stored data, so this step shouldn’t pose many issues, right?
Redirect from http to https? Can I do this from account control panel? What exactly do I do?
Thank you for any help,
