Enabling SSL For the Multisite Network

The process for enabling SSL for your main site varies depending on the type of Multisite you have.

Standard (Non-wildcard) SSL subdomains and Subdirectory Multisites

SSL can be enabled for the main network site by using the SSL tab.

  1. Go to WPCloud Deploy->Applications
  2. Locate your site and click on the title to navigate to the detail page
  3. Click on the SSL tab
  4. Click on the SSL Status Toggle.

If the DNS for your domain is properly configured to point to your server’s IP address then a certificate will be issued and SSL will be enabled for the site.

If you get an error, check the WPCloud Deploy->SSH LOG screen for a complete transcript of the action.

Important:  You cannot use the SSL TAB to enable SSL for a subsite.  Instead, use the SSL options under the Multisite tab!

Wildcard SSL Subdomain Multisites

SSL can be enabled under the MULTISITE tab.

  1. Go to WPCloud Deploy->Applications
  2. Locate your site and click on the title to navigate to the detail page
  3. Click on the MULTISITE tab
  4. Scroll down to the WILDCARD SSL section
  5. Fill out your Cloudflare data
  6. Click on the SSL Status Toggle.

If the DNS for your domain is properly configured to point to your server’s IP address then a certificate will be issued and SSL will be enabled for the site.

If you get an error, check the WPCloud Deploy->SSH LOG screen for a complete transcript of the action.

Notes

You can set up a special entry in the CloudFlare DNS screen to automatically route all subdomains to your Multisite install.  Setup an A record and use “*” as the name.
