Setting up Wordpress with SSL using Laragon
Hey Leo, thanks for the help before. I'm here to ask a simple question, or at least what I believe to be easy for you. I've gone ahead and enabled SSL on Laragon and it generated a SSL certificate. I have also enabled SSL in the settings of Laragon. But when forcing Wrodpress to use SSL, it simply says, "This site can’t provide a secure connection.".
Any ideas? What am I doing wrong? I'm using my pc's local ip and accesing the site from another computer. I added the line , "define('FORCE_SSL_ADMIN', true);" into wp-config.php
@MightyRufo: What is the Details of the error?
What web server are you using (Nginx, Apache)?
What if you create an empty project and check SSL?
Some pics will be useful.
Trying an empty project gives me the same message in google chrome, which is what gave me the "This site cannot provide a secure connection" message. As for error messages, that's the only one I can provide.
What would you like a screenshot of?
So it's not Wordpress configuration.
For Chrome click on Details, you'll see exactly the reason. It would be helpful if you test on Firefox (or whatever) also.
Chrome says : ERR_SSL_PROTOCOL_ERROR
The error for Firefox was.. certainly longer haha
Are you browsing your project using IP? I've tested Laragon auto-generated SSL feature and see no issue.
You may try creating a self-certificate yourself follow Kurre's instruction here:
@MightyRufo hello, did you solve your problem ? I just installed new Laragon, everything seems that it's working with nginx besides https. I'm getting :
"asd.dev:8443 uses an invalid security certificate. The certificate is not trusted because it is self-signed. Error code: SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER"
I created clean project, nginx is added in firewall exceptions, it should work...
I would like to inform that I have that same issue on my another computer. both are working on Windows 10 with newest updates. Maybe it will be helpful in next releases. Have a nice day guys
@MonsterDream : Glad to know that. Nice day
First of all, Log in to your domain registrar and add a CNAME record like below:
Value: Your WordPress staging URL
Once done, go back to the SSL Certificate tab and click on Verify DNS. It will cross-check the settings and notify you accordingly. Then, click on the INSTALL fffCERTIFICATE button to get a free SSL certificate for WordPress. Also, you should check the WordPress SSL site link with WordPress on Laragon.
