If you are looking to move your website from an http protocol to https protocol then you don't necessarily have to go for a paid SSL certificate. You could use the certificate provided by Let's Encrypt, which is a valid certifying authority. Here is a high level outline of what you should do to set up https on your webserver. We have documented how you should do it for nginx but a similar approach should work for other webservers as well.

On a WHM/cpanel VPS server the httpd.conf is automatically generated from cpanel scripts based on templates and you are not supposed to change this file directly. Any changes that you make in the httpd.conf file will be lost when cpanel re-generates the file or when cpanel is updated. This is an inconvenience especially when your application requires you to make virtualhost modifications in the configuration. However cpanel provides an alternative way to edit the httpd.conf file.

Apache allows you to protect contents of specific directories in your website or the whole website from unauthorized access using a mechanism called httpd password protection. During development of new sites the partially built sites are protected from unauthorized access using httpd authentication. This could sometimes interfere with testing of integration with third party services that might expect some of your URLs to be accessible without authentication. Here is how you can exclude a given file or directory from httpd authentication Apache Server Administration Drupal Security Web Security Access Control Leave a reply Your email address will not be published.
