Description

NYCDH does not have a wildcard SSL certificate, so we cannot enforce HTTPS across the entire NYCDH multisite install due to our multisite configuration using a subdomain set up.

Converting our multisite install from a subdomain configuration to a subdirectory one would allow us to enforce HTTPS.

I'll look into making this conversion some time after DH Week is completed so we won't disrupt anything.

Hi Ray -- I wanted to give this issue a bump, as we should probably move NYCDH to SSL sooner rather than later. thank you!

#3 Updated by Raymond Hoh 5 months ago

Thanks for the bump, Matt.

I'll get to this probably by the end of next week at the latest.

#4 Updated by Matt Gold 5 months ago

Thanks, Ray. We may want to take Lihua's vacation schedule into account

(I think Boone cc'ed you on an email about that, but I'll check and forward to you if not)

#6 Updated by Raymond Hoh 5 months ago

Thanks Matt. It probably makes sense for me to do the switchover after Lihua gets back.

Hi Matt,

I'm almost ready to make the switch to a subdirectory install, but before I do, can you audit the list of sites here:
http://nycdh.org/wp-admin/network/sites.php

And make sure to either delete or archive sites that are no longer active? The reason I ask is making the switch will require some manual work from me to update the site URLs.

Let me know if you have any questions.

#8 Updated by Raymond Hoh 4 months ago

Hi Matt,

I took the liberty of going through all the sites on NYCDH.

These are the ones we can keep for sure:

These ones have test content and are candidates for removal:

The rest of the sites not listed can be deleted.

Let me know what you think before I do the subdirectory switchover.

Hi Matt,

I've gone ahead and converted the subdomain install into a subdirectory one. I've also written a redirect rule so all older subdomain links should get automatically redirected to their subdirectory equivalent.

When you have a chance, this would be a good opportunity to remove sites that have either no content or barely any content at all. I've already made a site audit in my previous post. Let me know what you think.

For now, I'm going to mark this as resolved. Let me know if you encounter any bugs.

Fantastic. thank you, Ray! It looks great

#11 Updated by Raymond Hoh 3 months ago

Matt, can I go ahead and delete all the sites except the ones I listed above?

#12 Updated by Raymond Hoh 3 months ago

Hi Matt, I've gone ahead and deleted all remaining sites except the ones I listed in comment 8.

#13 Updated by Matt Gold 3 months ago

Thanks for this and sorry for the late response, Ray
