There’s no reason you couldn’t add SSL support to a Wordpress droplet created with the one-click image. All the Apache configuration is under: /etc/apache2/apache2.conf You’d just need to add a new VirtualHost that listens on 443 and points to your cert. <br> <br>The reason that this isn’t done by default is that there is no way to do it automatically except for using a self-signed cert. This is not what most people will want as it will cause warnings when you visit the site. Most people will want to obtain a cert from a proper Certificate Authority. <br> <br>If you want to create your own cert, this article should point you in the right direction: <br> <br>https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-create-a-ssl-certificate-on-apache-for-ubuntu-14-04
