Below, we indicate the requirements and steps to follow so that our Prestashop always uses HTTPS secure connections through an SSL certificate.
First of all, we must have at our disposal an SSL certificate installed on our website so that, subsequently, we can effectively configure the redirection from HTTP to HTTPS.
Below, we also indicate the manuals for requesting and installing the SSL certificate for your website from your SWPanel user account:
How to install a Let's Encrypt SSL certificate with SWPanel
Install ssl certificate purchased through SWPanel
Installing third-party SSL certificate via SWPanel
Once you have the SSL certificate installed on your website, you must access the management of your prestashop and activate the SSL from the PrestaShop PrestaShop --> Shop parameters --> Shop configuration.
The first step for the activation of SSL from the management of our Prestashop, will be to click on the option "Please click here to check if your store supports HTTPS."
The following message will appear on the screen:
Click on Yes, I understand the risks.
Next, we will return to the PrestaShop configuration but with the option to Activate SSL:
You must then accept the changes by clicking on the Save button.
And, once the Enable SSL button has been activated, we must also activate the Enable SSL on all pages button.
Remember that you must then accept the changes by clicking on the Save button.
