Enabling HTTPS or SSL for ProjectCamp

Before enabling HTTP(s) make sure you have the certification installed in your server in the domain name.

To check if the certificate is working go to https://yourdomain.com. If it shows green secured then the certificate is installed and we’re ready to use it.

To force redirect every user to https follow the below steps:

  1. Inside the codebase, you will find .htaccess file, open the file.
  2. This file will have some codes like this:
        RewriteEngine On
        RewriteRule ^(.*)$ public/$1 [L]

    Keep a back up of existing code and change the content to:

        RewriteEngine On
        RewriteCond %{HTTPS} !on
        RewriteRule ^.*$ https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [L,R=301]
        RewriteRule ^(.*)$ public/$1 [L]
  3. Open the .env file and change the APP_URL to include https.
  4. Refresh your browser and check. It should redirect to https by default.
