    Getting Server's signed Certificate to work on Wordpress

    I just started using s1.webhosting 2 days ago and installed a WordPress site on it. I see there is an option to use the server's certificate for SSL.
    I have the option to use the server's shared signed certificate enabled but how do I get my WordPress site to use it?
    Is there a special plugin to use?
    If I use Woocommerce will Stripe recognize it as a valid certificate?
    Thank you

    Hello,

    You need to create a cert for your domain.com (assuming you are running WP under domain.com) and change http:// to https:// in admin dashboard of your site.

    Enable TLS 1.2

    Thanks I did that but now I have to enable at least TLS 1.2.
    I struggled with the Control Panel to find out how to do it but no luck.
    Here is a short 1 minute video to explain what I tried.

    You'll have to update openssl and configuration on your system as instructed here.

    Yes I read that it says to do this:

    cd /usr/local/directadmin/custombuild
    ./build update
    ./build rewrite_confs

    Looks like dos commands to me.
    I have no idea where to even type this or what it will do.
    Is there a command prompt area somewhere in the control panel?

    I would probably need some video guidance on this.
    Possibly there is a YouTube video on this somewhere?
    Thanks for the reply

    It's about SSH and bash shell.

    If you are not familiar with SSH and bash shell you might need either to use custombuild plugin or hire somebody (I'm available for this) to do the things for you on the server.
