I have activated the plugin and added in my licence key. My website does come up with https but I am getting the following errors:
** Detecting configuration **
plugin version: 2.3.9
Opening testpage to check for ssl: https://walksinauckland.com/wp-content/plugins/really-simple-ssl/ssl-test-page.php
No ssl detected. the ssl testpage returned an error: Unknown error
— force ssl: TRUE
ssl not enabled, show noticeJuly 13, 2016 at 5:57 am #12576
The server is probably blocking the plugin from opening the testpage. To get the plugin to recognize SSL, when you’re in the WP admin, change the url in your browser address bar to https, then hit enter. Then click the “enable SSL” button.July 28, 2016 at 12:28 am #13022
Even if I manually change the URL to https while I’m in the dashboard it redirects to the home page http://community.vcoins.com
error No SSL detected.
warning HTTP Strict Transport Security was not set in your .htaccess. Enable HSTS
error The native WordPress function is_ssl() returned false
success Great! Your scan last completed without errors.
Many thanks in advance.July 30, 2016 at 4:09 pm #13065
Sorry I missed this post Pablo, but as you already contacted me by mail, we’ll continue on that channel.August 25, 2016 at 6:11 am #14061
I have the same problem, although when I enter https before the webaddress, I get a 404.. When I go to the main page and change to https, I get this:
Welcome to [website].com
To change this page, upload a new index.html to your private_html folder
Any help would be appreciated!

The server needs a symbolic link, for more info see this article: https://really-simple-ssl.com/knowledge-base/to-change-this-page-upload-a-new-index-html-to-your-private_html-folder/

Thanks Rogier, I will contact my host! Yes I did do a certificate check, it all came back positive; confirming that a Let’s Encrypt certificate is installed.October 24, 2016 at 9:39 am #16699
I have purchased the PRO edition, downloaded the zip, installede the Really Somple SSL plugin on my wordpress, up-loaded the zip add-on, but it does not work? I´m told to “Scan for issues” and get this result:
CSS and JS files with mixed content
These files contain http links, which causes mixed content.
To fix, follow these instructions
http link: http://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js
What am I doing wrong?October 24, 2016 at 10:35 am #16701
So based on this output I don’t expect issues when you move to SSL. If you have any issues, let me know.

Hello why really simple ssl not working “not detected” and when I try to reload says 404 error. 🙂March 14, 2019 at 1:58 pm #203916
If the 404 page also occurs on the back-end, you may need to check your server configuration. It is possible the SSL request points to a different location on the server, like in this article:

I think I have a similar problem.
Most of my site and wp_admin redirects to http when I manually enter https on the front end or in the wp_admin the stylesheets don’t seem to work and all the layout of the site and backend breaks. I have installed the plugin and bought the pro version. but the same issues. Do I need to go through every stylesheet and js file and change http:// to // or am I missing something? Is there an easier way?
Thanks,April 5, 2019 at 3:29 pm #211156
If you type in your site with https, and the site redirects to http, you might have a custom redirect active. Can you send me your domain, or post it here? Then I can take a look.
