In order to work this tip, SSL must be enabled on your server. If you have it then then simply add following line of code in your wp-config.php file, above the line "That's all, stop editing!"

 

define ('FORCE_SSL_ADMIN', true);

 

SSL won't work without support from your host. Some Web hosts give you all you need to start this service from within their admin interface, but others will have to activate it for you, and may even charge you for it.
