I don' think these are the same issues. The trouble here was directed at having the Lock icon appear in the browser when trying to login after setting define('FORCE_SSL_LOGIN', true); I changed this line to define('FORCE_SSL_ADMIN', true); and now users see the Lock icon in the browser.
The other issue was posted under a different heading (which has now been closed) regarding not being able to see the login page when using https with Chrome or Firefox. The error I get from Chrome is:
This webpage is not available
The webpage at https://xblogs.kentlaw.edu/wp-login.php might be temporarily down or it may have moved permanently to a new web address.
Error 324 (net::ERR_EMPTY_RESPONSE): Unknown error.
FireFox tells me:
Data Transfer Interrupted
The connection to xblogs.kentlaw.edu was interrupted while the page was loading.
The browser connected successfully, but the connection was interrupted while transferring information. Please try again.
