Question

I installed and activated my SSL keys, but my website is still not secure.

For reference, I used VestaCP to install the keys. I guess I still have to do something in the server end. I think the solution is simple, and is written right here. However, I have no idea how to type in those commands and what they even mean. I am using Putty for reference. Could someone care to explain?

Since you installed vestacp, I am guessing you know how to work with console. So go to console and type sudo -i This will log you in as root user. Then type the following commands one by one

cd /usr/local/vesta/data/templates/web
wget http://c.vestacp.com/0.9.8/rhel/force-https/nginx.tar.gz
tar -xzvf nginx.tar.gz
rm -f nginx.tar.gz

I would advice using a client like putty or some other ssh client to make the copy part easier. You just copy text from the source, and right click in the putty console. It pastes the text there.
