What’s the safest approach for changing Metabase URL from http to https


We want to change the protocol for Metabase URL to https because using Google Client ID for Google Sign-in might have an issue with http.

In our Metabase we have several collections, dashboards, questions, and users with email/password sign-in information.

Assuming https is properly configured on our server that's hosting Metabase, what is the safest way to change the Metabase URL in (Settings > Admin Settings > General > SITE URL) from http to https considering the Information provided under “SITE URL”.


Our main concern is being locked out of the account.

I would appreciate getting more information on potential consequences of changing the protocol and what we can do to change it as safe as possible.


Make a backup and then change. If you get locked out simply restore the backup

Will try that. Thanks.
