WordPress HTTPS (SSL)
Force admin ssl and exclusive ssl not working (7 posts)

    I'm trying to use the plugin only for the admin section, but it is forcing ssl on the entire site.

    I only have these two options checked - Force SSL Administration and Force SSL Exclusively.

    Have you disabled the plugin and tried hitting the site over HTTP to ensure that the plugin is the culprit? If the plugin is the cause, check your Home/Site URL and make sure they do not contain HTTPS. Also check URL Filters in the WordPress HTTPS settings. Make sure there's nothing in there that would cause all pages to be secure, such as '/' on one line.

    Yes i reset the plugin by un-commenting the line in the plugin's main file then hit an http page. It reset everything, then i tried to put those particular options back in, then it started doing the same things - making all my pages https and breaking everything. I don't have any URL filters and haven't changed my home or site URL for ages.

    Could you enable Debug Mode and send me a link?

    Here is an example with debug on..
    https://ruskeybiz.ru/news/
    Or here without debug:
    http://ruskeybiz.ru/rkb-blog/

    It seems to be working ok right now on the top level site (http://ruskeybiz.ru).

    But the other sites default to https and if you try to go to the non-https version it won't let you.

    The issue is either the server configuration (not that it's wrong, I've just never tested on it) or a conflicting theme or plugin. I'm leaning toward the server being the issue. The only way I can know for sure is to take a look myself. You can email me at mike[at]mvied[dot]com.

    We have moved on without the plugin, we only really need ssl for the login, admin section, and one page which I've managed to do via htaccess and WordPress config definitions. I'm not sure what happened in the last update to the plugin, but it was working just fine before we updated. We didn't change our server configuration or wordpress configuration, so that leaves the plugin as the culprit. I've been using the plugin (an older version) on a client site for a long time without problems as well so I know you've made a good plugin..
