Force HTTPS disables all menu selections

Post by PTSaputo » Mon Feb 22, 2021 2:16 am

site is fully functional
when I set Force HTTPS to "Entire Site", the home page loads and is secure.
However, every menu selection brings up "NOT FOUND" error.
When I change the selection back to "None" the site works.

Joomla 3.9.2.4 on Apache 2.4.41 (Ubuntu 20.04)
php 7.4.3

Welcome to the forum!

More information is required. What is the URL of the website?

Please post the results from the Forum Post Assistant (FPA) by following the instructions at https://forumpostassistant.github.io/docs so that the configuration can be reviewed by our volunteer experts.

Have you installed the SSL certificate on your hosting account?

Yes the certificates are on the server and referenced in the virtual host files in site-enabled folder. The home page finds the certificates.
