HTTPS migration: a WordPress blog hosted on Dreamhost
Jan 09, 2017 @ 09:17:27

Stoyan Stefanov has written up a post sharing the process he followed to migrate a WordPress blog to HTTPS on the Dreamhost hosting service.

Now some folks reminded me recently that the Perf calendar was not yet migrated to HTTPS... True enough. I have to do it. Eventually. In any normal situation I'll procrastinate indefinitely, but since I had more pressing things to do and "Anyone can do any amount of work, provided it isn’t the work he is supposed to be doing at that moment"... I bit the bullet.

Below are the steps that worked for me with a WordPress blog, hosted on DreamHost. The steps are still relevant to any WordPress site, just using Dreamhost as an example and since Dreamhost makes many of the steps easy.

He breaks the process down into six parts, including a bit of testing at the end:

  • Setup free SSL certificate thanks to Let's Encrypt
  • Backup all the things (or just the blog's database or just the table with the posts)
  • Search and replace internal references (images and links) WP settings
  • Redirect http to https permanently in .htaccess
  • Test/tweak?

Each step comes with the code or configuration you'll need to set up HTTPS and some screenshots where necessary, like with the Let's Encrypt setup.

Installing a PHP that can do symfony+doctrine on Dreamhost
Jun 01, 2007 @ 21:15:00

Dave Dash has posted guide to setting up a PHP installation that can work with both the Symfony framework and the doctrine functionality on a Dreamhost server.

Lately I've been experimenting with Doctrine on a few projects. It does have some requirements, including the PDO layer of PHP 5.2. Things didn't work right off the bat on Dreamhost (which I still use for non-critical things), so I opted to build my own php.

The post is basically a cut and paste of a handy "install all" script you can customize to match your installation preferences.
