I did the steps and on Step 2 it asked me to input a bunch of questions such as company name, country, email add, etc. Is this correct?
Also I did your steps, it says in the Site Information beside the URL of browser that I have Certificate from Let’s Encrypt but how come it still shows the “Your connection to this site is not secure”.
Yes, that is normal when you create a certificate. As you were creating a dummy certificate you could have entered whatever you want. You would only need to specify a domain for the Common Name.
Usually, this can be addressed by configuring your domain name using the proper protocol in the file /opt/bitnami/apps/wordpress/htdocs/wp-config.php.
Hi I changed the code to what you suggested, site is still not secure.
Sometimes it is also necessary to update the domain in the database. Do you mind executing the following command to see if your domain is properly configured in the database?
mysql -u root -p bitnami_wordpress -e "select * from wp_options where option_name='home' || option_name='siteurl';"
When executing the previous command, you will be asked for the mysql root user password. This password should be the same you use to log in to your WordPress as administrator.
If your domain name is not properly configured, you can update the values with these commands:
mysql -u root -p bitnami_wordpress -e 'UPDATE wp_options SET option_value="https://domain.com" WHERE option_name="home"'
mysql -u root -p bitnami_wordpress -e 'UPDATE wp_options SET option_value="https://domain.com" WHERE option_name="siteurl"'
Remember to replace domain.com by your real domain.
No. But it won’t allow users to access using plain HTTP.
