I just purchased SSL for my website from hostgator, so that I can add lock symbol in my website, when users visit https://www.mysite.com

For example:

SSL Certificate

Now they have installed the certificate, but I am unable to make this thing visible on my site. When I am opening the site with https:// it shows no lock symbol.

Please help me to show lock symbol and security certificate information when https:// pages open in my PHP Script.

"add lock symbol" Please read something about SSL to understand, what that means. Most of your question will get answered just by reading this WP article. – feeela Dec 27 '12 at 16:41

You need to make sure that all resources from your page (images, scripts, css) are also loaded via https otherwise your page is not secure.

The lock symbol shows: You are connected to mysite.com, which is run by (unknown). Why this unknown? How can i change this? – user1547766 Dec 27 '12 at 16:06
If you buy an EV certificate (unknown) will be replaced with the physical address of your company. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Extended_Validation_Certificate – ZippyV Dec 27 '12 at 18:52
