    Thank you so much for this walkthrough. Currently, implemented SSL on one of my sites lately and got no issues.

    Also, if you have activated the Better Search & Replace plugin, it is highly recommended to removed it once you are done using it.

    Thanks again for this awesome article.

      Glad you already did. And yes, one should deact/removed it once done. It is not recommended to just leave it there.
