the correct order manual install WP and SSL on server

I am wundering what the correct order of these next things is when you want to manually install Wordpress and have SSL installed on your server and website.
Is this the correct order to do that in?

  1. Install SSL certificate for the site on the server
  2. Manually install WordPress
  3. Go to your website and do all the WP settings for SSL

And what if you don’t do it in this order?

This order is not mandatory. You can as well first install WordPress, create your website (on http), then buy a SSL certificate, install it, then use a plugin which forces/redirects to SSL (there are a couple if you google search for them). This works too :wink:
