To enable https you can also operate on .htaccess file available in all websites. If the file is not available you can create it. The file must be located in public_ html/.htaccess (the dot identifies it as a hidden system file). 
To end the operation you have to open the file using a text editor via FTP or using cPanel File Manager and type the following instructions above the file:


RewriteEngine On 
RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} 80 
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [L,R=301]


These instructions must be written one for each string and will force a redirect of all calls to port 80, from http to https
