wanichan's English blog

Just blogging in English from Osaka, Japan. Technology, Diary and Life Style.

Moving my sites to Always On SSL

The hosting company started providing Always On SSL with Let's Encrypt on Tuesday, so I applied for all my websites.


There are over 10,000 pages on wanichan.com, so it takes time to switch from http:// to https:// on Google search engine, so I did forcing to HTTPS using the .htaccess.

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTPS} off
RewriteRule (.*) https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [R=301,L]

You know, I have been maintaining my main website for over 18 years, so there are tons of moved files in the site. I had to replace each new place starting from http:// to https:// . - with Notepad. I did replace to https:// for every sitemap.xml as well.


Now I can set contact forms on my website.
