Enabling HTTPS or SSL for ultimatepos

Before enabling http(s) make sure you have the certification installed in your server in the pos 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.

https enabled (shows secured lock symbol)

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

  1. Inside pos 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 .env file and change APP_URL to include https (once the extra s in end) in it.
  4. Refresh your browser and check. It should redirect to https by default.
