Changing $assumedRoot to SSL

I found another thread on this and applied the following to my WA_Globals.php file:

$WAGLOBAL_Root_URL = ((isset($_SERVER['SERVER_PROTOCOL']) && strpos($_SERVER['SERVER_PROTOCOL'], 'HTTPS') !== false) ? 'https://' : 'https://') . $_SERVER['SERVER_NAME'] . $WAGLOBAL_localRoot;

However, when I type in a URL without using https, it doesn't work.

For example, type in: Products_Results.php

Shouldn't it automatically take a user to https instead? Maybe I'm misunderstanding what the fix was for...

this should be done using an htaccess redirect instead:
force-ssl-htaccess.html

Thanks, Jason. As you know, I'm still a PHP newbie. Is this .htaccess file something I create myself? Is it like a text file? Sorry, I know this is probably a stupid question :)

yes, you need to create the .htaccess file. and upload it to the root of your site.
