You probably noticed that you can’t use your website-example.dev with your Chrome, as it is reporting that your website is not secure.
I am using Homestead 5 and by default homestead uses nginx to server your files. If you have a website-example.dev defined in your Homestead.yaml, then if you go in /etc/nginx/ssl/you will find two files for your domain:
website-example.dev.key website-example.dev.crt website-example.dev.key
All you have to do is (if you are on Mac OS) is get this website website-example.dev.crtinside your Keychain Access, and set to trust this certificate.
In order to use this file, you can vagrant ssh and copy this file to your shared folder:
sudo cp /etc/nginx/ssl/website-example.dev.crt /home/vagrant/Code/ssl
Now you can access this file from your Mac OS (wherever you setup your source folder).
Then below the All Items, click on Certificates, and find your website-example.dev.crt
Then double click on it and select to Trust -> Always trust.
And that’s it. Now your setup is closer to what you should have on your production and can operate on HTTPS.
Also you may want to have a permanent redirection from http to https
listen 80 default_server;
listen [::]:80 default_server;
return 301 https://website-example.app;
This should be placed at the top of
sudo vim /etc/nginx/sites-available/website-example.app
