  1. very nice and awesome topic
    Thank you so much for this walkthrough. Currently, implemented SSL on one of my sites lately and got no issues.

    Also, if you have activated the Better Search & Replace plugin, it is highly recommended to removed it once you are done using it.

    Thanks again for this awesome article.
