WordPress HTTPS (SSL)
[resolved] "Invalid WordPress installation" (4 posts)

    I use Hostmonster, which is owned by BlueHost. According to Hostmonster Support, the shared SSL URL is https://secure.hostmonster.com/~username.

    When I enter this in the plugin's SSL Host field and save, it says, "SSL Host - Invalid WordPress installation at https://secure.hostmonster.com/~username/". I've tried with and without the trailing slash, but get the same either way. All I want to do is secure my login form; I don't need the admin panel or front end secured.

    If you browse to just the SSL URL and you get a 404 error, you can't use that Shared SSL. I'm not sure exactly what's breaking WordPress, but I currently don't know of a fix.

    The URL is https://secure.hostmonster.com/~optimwis/. Firefox and Chrome show a blank page (even the source is blank) with a Comodo certificate, but IE9 shows a 404.

    Yes, it's a 404 page. You can use Chrome Developer Tools or Firebug in Firefox to see the header is coming back with a 404, even though the page is blank.
