Cannot enable SSL

Recommended Posts

Hello, I'm having issues with enabling SSL on my site. I've read a few threads on this forum from other people having similar issues I've had no luck up to now with some of the suggested fixes.


I'm running Prestashop - when I login and go to Preferences > General I see a link that says:

"Please click here to use HTTPS protocol before enabling SSL."


When I press the link the page refreshes but I do not get a radio button allowing me to turn SSL on.


I have experimented with turning SSL on by changing the setting directly in MySQL but this results in infinite loop errors on the front end of the site on those pages that want to use SSL.


If someone could help me with this that would be much appreciated.

Just incase anyone comes across this thread having the same issue, I finally found the answer here on another thread:




Adding this line to the top of my .htaccess file fixed the issue immediately:

SetEnvIf X-Forwarded-Proto https HTTPS=on
