WordPress HTTPS (SSL)
[Plugin: WordPress HTTPS] Trouble working with a photo plugin through secured site (5 posts)

    So we just installed and activated a plugin (WordPress Photo Album Plus)on our WordPress HTTPS secured page, and I'm wondering if https could be blocking the plugin from installing fully (WPPA+ is supposed to be creating it's own folder in the 'wp-content' folder, but this isn't happening, and thus the plugin isn't functioning correctly). I'm addressing this issue with the author of that plugin as well, so I figured I'd see if there were any known issues with plugins (particularly photo album ones) installing/functioning correctly after WordPress HTTPS has been activated and setup (our site is using v1.5.2 of your plugin). Thanks!

    Hey tenguzero,

    I haven't had any reports of this problem. If my plugin was preventing a plugin from installing, I imagine it would make it so that no plugin would install. Have you tried installing other plugins, or disabling my plugin and then trying to install it?

    Just from what you've told me, it sounds like maybe there is no public write access to the wp-content folder, which is sometimes required, depending on your server configuration.

    Let me know. Thanks!
    Mike

    Thanks for your quick reply Mike. Upon working on this further, it seems like the photo album plugin is installing OK, but when I try to send a command to upload an album using its interface (appears to be just a form data submission) Firefox gives me the "although this page is encrypted, the information you have entered is to be sent over an unencrypted connection..." message, and once I hit OK, the page refreshes and it acts like my command was sent, but no album is created. I've opened up full permissions to the wp-content folder just in case, but I don't think that's the issue, since the plugin has been installing its files into the /plugins folder no problem -- it's just writing to the /uploads folder (when I receive the above encryption message in Firefox) that isn't working. I know the guy who had initially configured WP HTTPS on the site found he had to tweak a couple lines of code (possibly in wp-config?) and also have the hosting company do something on there end to allow https for the site. Is there maybe some sort of setting I'm missing? The version of HTTPS they're using only has three options...

    Let me do a little internal testing and get back to you. I think I know what's wrong, though.

    Hey Tenguzero,

    Go ahead and update WordPress HTTPS. I think that'll clear it up.

    Thanks,
    Mike
