Used ee site create example.com --wpfc to create a website and then added php7 support along with letsencrypt.
As far as I can tell, the tutorials for EE tell me to just go into WordPress -> Settings ->General and then change the two URL fields to https://www.blah.com
So that not only are all requests redirected to www.blah.com (which is what I want) but so that it also forces https:// as well.
However, when doing a GTMetrix test and just putting in blah.com for testing purposes, I get an F on the “Avoid landing page redirects” because it is adding time to redirect from blah.com to https://blah.com and then finally to https://www.blah.com
How can I avoid this? I have tried guides in the past (but EE tutorials can be so old at times) that have ended up throwing me into a 301 redirect loop and that’s not good.
I’m looking for how to properly setup EE to make all pageviews be https://www.blah.com no matter what the person puts in
Or is that type of redirection cycle GTMetrix is listing innevitable when I’m trying to force both https and www?
