How to Fix Common SSL Issues in WordPress?

As a webmaster, it is essential to understand the common SSL errors that can occur when attempting to secure a website. SSL (Secure Socket Layer) errors can be caused by multiple factors and can be difficult to troubleshoot. In this article, we will discuss the most Common SSL Issues in WordPress as well as provide some tips for resolving them quickly and efficiently.

How to Fix Common SSL Issues in WordPress?

Following are a few typical SSL problems with WordPress and how to fix them:

Your site is not secure: This alert may appear if your site has an SSL certificate, but some content (such as images, CSS files, or JavaScript files) is nonetheless being accessed over HTTP. To fix this, you can use plugins, like Really Simple SSL (I personally use this one) or SSL Insecure Content Fixer, to force all resources to use HTTPS.

Mixed content error: This can happen if there are elements on your site that are loading over HTTPS, while others are loading over HTTP. To fix this, you can use the plugins above to force all elements to load over HTTPS.

SSL certificate not showing as installed: If your SSL certificate is not showing as installed, it may be that your site’s hosting provider is utilizing a shared SSL certificate. You’ll have to contact your hosting supplier to access the dedicated SSL certificate for your website.

SSL certificate not working: If your SSL certificate is malfunctioning, it may be that the certificate isn’t installed correctly or configured. You will need to get in touch with your hosting service provider or the party that sold you the certificate for help.

SSL certificate not trusted: If you see a warning in the browser’s address bar that the SSL certificate is not trusted, it could possibly be because the certificate is self-signed (not issued by a trusted certificate authority) or because the certificate has expired. In either case, you will need to get a new SSL certificate from a valid certificate authority.
