Weather Display Live Serial Number Issue Again
« on: February 08, 2019, 10:05:17 PM »
I was told it was a good idea to secure my website with and SSL so I went to GoDaddy and did just that.  After making that change my  http://turnerdownsweather.com/wxlive.php page is showing a serial number error.  It seems my address has changed to http://turnerdownsweather.com....it was http://www.turnerdownsweather.com 

Is there a way to keep the current serial number or do I need a new one?  I just asked you to assist me a couple of weeks ago when I got my site back on line...sorry for the extra work.

Thanks in advance,
Ronnie

With and without "www" are two different serial numbers, but that's really not the issue. Since you have now signed up (paid?) for SSL you should default the access to your site to using https://www.turnerdownsweather.com, then the link to WDL will default to https://www.turnerdownsweather.com/wxlive.php and the original serial will work (after you've made any changes for https).  I'm not familiar with godaddy hosting so I don't know if that would be a setup option on your account or whether you'll have to add a redirect in .htaccess or similar. Need one of the web gurus or google to help with that.
