To configure SSL for a CodeIgniter site, follow these steps:

  1. Obtain an SSL certificate from a trusted certificate authority. This can be either a self-signed certificate or a purchased certificate.
  2. Update the CodeIgniter configuration file to use HTTPS instead of HTTP. Open the config.php file located in the application/config directory and add the following line:
$config['base_url'] = '';

Replace with your actual domain name.

  1. Update the .htaccess file to redirect all HTTP traffic to HTTPS. Add the following lines to the .htaccess file:
RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTPS} off
RewriteRule ^ https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [L,R=301]

  1. Update any links in your CodeIgniter site that use the base_url() or site_url() functions to use HTTPS instead of HTTP, to ensure all links are secure.
  2. Test your site to confirm that it is now using SSL. Try accessing your site using https:// in the URL and ensure that the SSL certificate is valid and the site is loading securely.

By following these steps, you can configure SSL for your CodeIgniter site and ensure that all data transmitted between the server and the client is encrypted and secure.
