WordPress HTTPS (SSL)
[resolved] WordPress HTTPS v1.9.2 error / The page isn't redirecting prope (48 posts)

    In case it matters, I am using the monochrome theme.

    When I attempt to force SSL on 1 page, I receive an error:
    "The page isn't redirecting properly"
    "Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete."

    Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. I also have this page disabled (excluded) from the theme's menu view and plan only to directly link to it from other page(s).

    Does the problem exist when you use the default theme?

    yes it does. i just checked it using the twenty-ten theme which if I remembered correctly, is the default.

    Are you using a Shared or Private SSL Cert?

    i'm using netsol hosting and i purchased the ssl cert so i believe it's private.

    Generally that error comes from the plugin not detecting that the page is SSL, so it tries to redirect endlessly. The opposite can be true when it identifies a page as non-SSL (but it is). Also, another plugin could be causing a conflict, although that's uncommon.

    Have you tried the 2.0 development version? http://downloads.wordpress.org/plugin/wordpress-https.2.0.zip

    It sounds like it's not detecting SSL properly. I'll need to take a look at it to see what's going on. Unfortunately I don't have access to a computer for the weekend. I'll be able to look at it Monday evening at the earliest.

    If you want me to take a look, I'll need an account on the site that can edit plugins. Once I have a fix I'll put it in the next release (which is basically ready, so I can squeeze it in).

    Hi Mvied

    Getting same issues with my site. Host says it's because they handle SSL differently with it being a cloud server and pointed me at this post:

    Hey davbel,

    In the 2.0 development version, I've already taken $_SERVER['HTTP_X_FORWARDED_PROTO'] into account. Thanks for the tip, though. :)

    Thanks,
    Mike

    Hi Mike

    Thanks for that - Tried the new dev version and it appears to work i.e. I can see the HTTPS pages, but now I'm guessing I've got some non Https elements somewhere as it's not showing the padlock or the SSL bar in Firefox.

    Hey breezy421,

    Well, there are many reasons that redirect loops occur. Since you're using the current development version, I'll probably need to log into your site and do some debugging to see what's going on. It shouldn't take me long to come up with a bugfix that I can put in the next version.

    If that's okay with you, you can create an admin account for mike[at]mvied[dot]com and I'll take a look at it.

    Thanks,
    Mike

    Hey Breezy,

    Thanks! One thing I've noticed off the bat is that the redirect loop occurs even when the plugin is disabled. Looking into that now.

    Thanks,
    Mike

    Hey Breezy,

    I can't seem to figure out what's causing the issue. I want to try disabling all the plugins and messing with the theme, but not if that is a public site. Is there any way you could make a copy of the site on a subdomain/subfolder or something so that I could really mess with it and see what's going on?

    Thanks,
    Mike

    hello,

    I've tried your new version and upon attempting to activate the plugin, it tries to redirect my admin console to https and i get an error stating redirecting in a way that will never resolve, or something along those lines. i'm using this in firefox (latest version).

    Hey fabian21,

    You'll need to delete WordPress HTTPS' options from your database. You can do that easily by executing this query on your WordPress database.

    DELETE FROM wp_options WHERE option_name LIKE 'wordpress-https%';

    This was a bug caused by 2.0 and 2.0.1 only. After you run the above query, you shouldn't have any more problems.

    Thanks,
    Mike
