How to Configure Joomla to Work With an SSL Certificate?

To configure Joomla to work with SSL, there are two things you need to do – install a certificate and configure your application to work through HTTPS.

Step 1: Install an SSL Certificate

In Site Tools, you have to go to the Security > SSL Manager page. Here, you need to select your domain, choose the type of certificate you want, and click on the Get button. Let’s Encrypt and Let’s Encrypt Wildcard are completely free certificates that you can use for your sites while the Premium Wildcard certificate is a paid one that has to be ordered.

Step 2: Configure Joomla to Work Through HTTPS

Joomla supports HTTPS natively, so all you need to do is go to System > Global Configuration > Server and set the Force HTTPS option to Entire Site.
