How do we fix the https:// error on the website?

When I add https:// to my website url, it gives the below error:

"Your Connection is not Secure.
The owner of www.xyz.com has configured their website improperly. To protect your information from being stolen, Firefox has not connected to this website."

What should be done?


It looks like you haven't purchased SSL certificate for your website. If you have purchased it, it is possible that it is not installed properly. You should talk to your hosting provider.


If you are on shared server then you can ask your hosting company regarding SSL certificate.
You can ask them to install Free SSL for your website or if they don't provide FreeSSL then you can install paid SSL certificate.

If you have VPS hosting plan then you can yourself install SSL certificate on your server.
You can follow these steps to install SSL on your server:

Login to the WHM by going to yourdomain.com/whm in a browser. Replace yourdomain.com with your domain.
Once you get to the login page enter your username and password.
Username will be root.
Password will be the root password for your server.

The WHM login page.
If this is your first time logging into the WHM you may see a page titled "Feature Showcase". Click on Exit to WHM at the bottom of the page.The Feature Showcase page with 'Exit to WHM' spotlighted.

Access The Install SSL Tool
Once you are logged into the WHM you need to use the SSL installer to upload and activate a certificate on the domain. The easiest way to find it is through the WHM search tool.

In the WHM Search box on the left side enter "Install an SSL Certificate"
Click on the "Install an SSL Certificate on a Domain" link that appears.
You should now be at the Install an SSL Certificate on a Domain page in the WHM.

The Install an SSL Certificate on a Domain page.

Install The SSL
When you purchased the SSL certificate you should have received files for your certificate, key and Certificate Authority bundle. If you do not have these files you will need to get them from the company you purchased the certificate from.

On the "Install an SSL Certificate on a Domain" page enter your domain your certificate was issued for into the "Domain:" The Domain box.
Paste the Certificate, Key and Certificate Authority Bundle into their respective boxes.The certificate, key and CA bundle boxes.
Click the Install button at the bottom.

The SSL certificate should be installed and you can begin using it.


Error is due to some images accessing http instead of https. Need to check it and fix it


If you are using WordPress, then install Force SSL plugin, I had the same issue, this plugin solved it completely.


Check and update SSL/CL certificate, Check the certificate chain, Configure HTTPS Properly, Mixed Content Issues, Test SSL/TLS Configuration, Clear Browser Cache, and Check Firewall and Security Plugin if this does not work you may seek professional help.
