Mixed content occurs when you attempt to load images or other content using HTTP instead of HTTPS in their links. To fix this, all you need to do is edit the links on your page so that they start with HTTPS instead.

To force your Joomla website to use HTTPS, navigate to Global ConfigurationServer settings, locate the Force HTTPS option and choose Entire site:

The Joomla global configuration and how to force HTTPS for the entire site

Next, open your website's .htaccess file using the File Manager and add the following lines after RewriteEngine On:

RewriteCond %{HTTPS} !=on
RewriteRule ^ https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [L,R=301]

Save the changes and reload your website - it should be working properly with HTTPS 💪

If you still get a mixed content warning, add the DB Replacer extension to your Joomla installation and use it to automatically change all HTTP links to HTTPS.
