WordPress HTTPS (SSL)
[resolved] Backend redirects to 404 - Not Found (9 posts)

  1. I have a fully functional positive ssl cert installed. On our internal development site it works great on the front end and we have fixed all insecure content issues.

    However, when we enable force ssl for the WordPress dashboard we are immediately directed to a 404 not found in this format.

    http://www.domain.com/login/?redirect_to=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.domain.com%2Fwp-admin%2Fadmin.php%3Fpage%3Dwordpress-https&reauth=1

    We do use lighttpd instead of apache2.

  2. Update: Seems that this plugin is not compatible with WP-LOGIN (http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-login/).

    Umm, what? If there is an incompatibility with another plugin, this is hardly resolved. Could you explain?

  4. When we enable force ssl for the WordPress backend we are immediately directed to a 404 not found in this format.

    http://www.domain.com/login/?redirect_to=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.domain.com%2Fwp-admin%2Fadmin.php%3Fpage%3Dwordpress-https&reauth=1.

    The WP-Login for some reason redirects to it's login page (domain.com/login) and results in a 404.

    So without WordPress HTTPS enabled, http://www.domain.com/login/ works fine. But, when enabled, it's a 404?

  6. Yes, that's correct -- http://www.domain.com/login/ tries to redirect to https://www.domain.com/login and then results in a 404.

    Okay, does https://www.domain.com/login work without the plugin?

  8. Yes, it does. Right now we have removed the WP-Login plugin and coded our own login form while using your plugin.

    Yeah, I don't know if it would be easy to get these to work together. As long as the login page URL doesn't change, everything should work fine with my plugin.
