    Hi. Currently, I have Events Pro with http://lakesareachamber.com

    I would like to move to https://lakesareachamber.com. Will this cause any problem with the events calendar?

    Thanks!

    Good evening George,

    Thank you for reaching out to us.
    I would love to help you with this topic.

    The short answer is no. However, I would strongly advise following a proper tutorial on how to transfer your WordPress site from http to https.

    Additionally, if you run into issues, I highly recommend the following plugin to fix things: https://wordpress.org/plugins/ssl-insecure-content-fixer/

    Let me know how that goes.

    Best regards,
    Geoff B.

    Sorry for the long delay (I thought I was going to get an email when you responded).

    OK, thanks for the feedback.

    Also, is there a way to backup all my events, then upload them if I have an issue after the migration to https?

    Thanks!

    Good evening George,

    No worries, most of the times you should indeed be getting an email as well.
    However sometime, as you know, emails can get filtered to the way side.

    In any case, let’s address your other concern.

    is there a way to backup all my events, then upload them if I have an issue after the migration to https?

    The safest approach to this (and any upgrade in fact) is to make a complete backup of your website’s database. Typically this is done using phpMyAdmin in your web host’s Cpanel.

    There are also a handful of backup plugins out there for that purpose (Updraft Plus is a popular option).

    But normally migrations to https are pretty uneventful.

    Let me know how that goes.

    Best regards,
    Geoff B.
