Technical risk of moving to https

    I’ve been meaning to migrate it to https, but haven’t found the time recently.

    Today I found the time.

    Rather than purchase SSL from my web host, I’m just using Let’s Encrypt because it is built into my web host’s cpanel.

    While waiting for the SSL changes to propagate I amended my content so that instead of:

    I amended all references in the HTML to “//eviltester.com

    These are Protocol Relative URLs.

    And I amended the .htaccess file to have https redirects

    # force https
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteCond %{HTTPS} off
    RewriteRule (.*) https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [R=301,L]
    # Force www on https
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^eviltester\.com [NC]
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://www.eviltester.com/$1 [L,R=301,NC]

    After I saw that I could visit https://eviltester.com I uploaded the changes… and held my breath.

    Because this seemed risky.

    After a quick navigation it seemed OK.

    I ran Total Validator Pro to check the links and it seemed OK.

    And by OK I mean it found a 404 that I don’t care about. But I do care that it was on a page that I should really have deleted. So I deleted that page.

    And it found a 404 on my front page, which again I have amended.

    There may well be other issues, but I will accept that risk for the moment since https was the priority.bundle worth checking out The Ultimate Programmer Super Stack.
