There is an error about “Strict-Transport-Security：This site was served over HTTP and did not redirect to HTTPS.”

How should fix these issues?

have you enabled a redirect setting in the plugin settings (Settings->SSL->Settings)? That should redirect the site to https:// and solve the first error. Likely the HSTS header will then be served over https:// as well to fix the second error.

After then I re-enable SSL and HSTS and waiting for a while, it finally works. Now my site passed the check list of the header scan. Thank you!February 25, 2019 at 8:38 pm #198913

Detected possible certificate issues
Really Simple SSL failed to detect a valid SSL certificate. If you do have an SSL certificate, try to reload this page over https by clicking this button:
Reload over https
. The built-in certificate check will run once daily; to force a new certificate check visit the SSL settings page. Really Simple SSL requires a valid SSL certificate. You can check your certificate on Qualys SSL Labs.February 26, 2019 at 9:05 am #199048
your site cannot be connected to over port 443, the SSL port. You can contact your hosting provider so they can check if port 443 has been opened correctly.

I have 5 site pro license. I have 3 sites added to same.
In the Wp admin for one of the sites under configuration I see the following warning:
HTTP Strict Transport Security is not enabled. To enable, get Premium.
Under settings every is enabled except the last 3:
-Stop editing the .htaccess file
-Switch mixed content fixer hook
I do not see any seeing for enabling HSTS
Please let me know. Thanks RickMay 7, 2019 at 2:53 pm #222432
sounds like the pro plugin isn’t activated on that site, can you check if Really Simple SSL pro is listed as active in the plugins overview? Having pro active should get rid of the warning and add an HSTS option to the settings.May 7, 2019 at 3:05 pm #222436May 7, 2019 at 3:22 pm #222443
the pro plugin also has to be installed and activated on those sites before HSTS can be set. You can check if this is the case in the plugins overview.May 7, 2019 at 3:37 pm #222461
Where may I direct download the Pro plugin version?
Do I need to deactivate or uninstall the free plugin?May 7, 2019 at 3:55 pm #222471
You can download the pro plugin from your account page at https://really-simple-ssl.com/account (click on the purchases tab and then on ‘view details and downloads’, a link to the zip file can be found at the bottom of that page). The pro plugin is an add-on for the free plugin, therefore the free plugin needs to remain enabled. For detailed installation instructions see https://really-simple-ssl.com/knowledge-base/install-really-simple-ssl-pro/.
Let me know if you have any other questions.May 7, 2019 at 3:59 pm #222474
Excellent. I will give it a whirl.
