If you’ve already enabled the SSL add-on for your site on Flywheel and gotten your SSL certificate installed (whether by providing your own SSL certificate or using our free Simple SSL add-on), you might want to “force” SSL (also known as forcing HTTPS) on your site. In other words, you may want to redirect all traffic to your site via the HTTP protocol to HTTPS, so that the transmissions to and from your site are encrypted and secure.
To do this on Flywheel, just head to the site’s Advanced tab, and you’ll find the “Force HTTPS” toggle switch. (This will only appear once you have an installed and active SSL certificate.)
Just toggle that switch on and we’ll redirect all your site’s traffic to HTTPS at the server level automatically!
