Enable HTTPS for the forum

It would be great to enable https on this forum. I feel a bit uneasy about having a personal account with a password here while the login process is not encrypted.

@sadhen is this possible? I have myself admin access, but I do not have any knowledge of this forum software. If somebody find out how to do it I can follow their instructions…

This looks like the official instructions:


Maybe you can run the setup again and it will install the site with https support (" Unless you are an expert sysadmin and know a reason not to do that, you should run discourse-setup rather than read any further.")

Thanks. @sadhen ? what do you think? There are reasons not to have HTTPS support?

Perhaps it could make sense to combine this with a move to forum.texmacs.org
The texmacs.org domain already has a Letsencrypt certificate.

BTW, currently texmacs.org does not redirect to the https site by default. But if you manually specify https it does work.

Thanks for this piece of information. For users for the moment, one could set up a rule in the plugin “HTTPS Everywhere” (https://www.eff.org/https-everywhere).
