How to migrate WordPress to https (v-migrate-site-to-https)

Post by XerxeS »

hi all

SSL is active for sure, but your wordpress has 'http://' URL in it's database (instead of 'https://').
We have command v-migrate-site-to-https:
You can call it from SSH:

Code: Select all

sudo /usr/local/vesta/bin/v-migrate-site-to-https yourdomain.com
and it will automatically replace http://yourdomain.com to https://yourdomain.com in your WordPress database.

That's it !

---------------------------

...but, if your WordPress is uploaded in subfolder, our script will not detect WordPress in subfolder.

However, you can do http to https replace manually, with wp-cli:

Code: Select all

sudo wget -nv https://raw.githubusercontent.com/wp-cli/builds/gh-pages/phar/wp-cli.phar -O /usr/local/bin/wp
sudo chmod +x /usr/local/bin/wp

USER='' # enter here hosting username
DOMAIN='' # enter here domain, without http://, https:// and without www.
alias php='php7.3' # change to desired php version

cd /home/$USER/web/$DOMAIN/public_html/

sudo -H -u$USER wp search-replace "http://$DOMAIN" "https://$DOMAIN" --precise --all-tables --skip-columns=guid
sudo -H -u$USER wp search-replace "http://www.$DOMAIN" "https://www.$DOMAIN" --precise --all-tables --skip-columns=guid
sudo -H -u$USER wp cache flush
service memcached restart

grep -rl "http://$DOMAIN" ./ | xargs sed -i "s#http://$DOMAIN#https://$DOMAIN#g"
grep -rl "http://www.$DOMAIN" ./ | xargs sed -i "s#http://www.$DOMAIN#https://www.$DOMAIN#g"

try https://interconnectit.com/search-and-r ... databases/
replace "http://yourdomain" to "https://yourdomain"
then put "force-https" nginx template in myVesta

in your public_html/ folder add this to .htaccess file:

Code: Select all

RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{HTTPS} off
RewriteRule ^ https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [L,R=301]
