WordPress Multi-Site HTTPS Migration: a Case Study by Jeremy Chinquist

APA-OTS has a multi-site WordPress instance that serves 10 websites with varying requiresments and use-cases. Several of them are much more than simple blogs based on WordPress. The multi-site HTTPS transition was completed in Q1 2017.

In this case study, the following questions will be addressed:
- How can a WordPress multi-site website be migrated to the HTTPS protocol?
- How can this task be accomplished seamlessly…
…without loss of site traffic?
…without duplicate content (SEO)?
…without loss of site speed?
…with avoiding errors and the common pitfalls?
