Wordpress does not serve images through https
I have a problem with my WP 1-Click Installation.
I followed this tutorial on how to secure Apache with Let’s Encrypt on Ubuntu, which was really helpful, to install an SSL certificate on my DO server.
Now I can access the website via https, but all wordpress media (newly uploaded images as well) are still served via http. This results in a “Not secure because of mixed Media” warning message in the browser.
Having searched through various forums, I cannot seem to find a fix for this besides using wordpress plugins, what doesn’t seem to be a proper fix to me though.
Also, since having installed the SSL certificate, the website loads really slowly. Well, actually the content (HTML, CSS, Images) seem to be loading very quickly, but although all elements are visible and the site is interactive, it loads for 15s+ more afterwards. Does this have something to do with the mixed media issue?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
