Now using HTTPS with SSL on the blog.
My site and blog is hosted by hostgator.I was able to get a free SSL certificate from my hosting provider for one site. After using the automated system and selecting my site a folder named “ssl” was placed in my root directory.
I moved the ssl directory to the public_html directory where my WordPress site is hosted. I downloaded the plugin Really Simple SSL for my site and used the automatic detection and configuration. After the setup my site automatically redirected to the HTTPS but the browser said some items were still insecure. After some googling I discovered another wordpress plugin SSL Insecure Content Fixer. After installing and using the default settings my site in now secure.
