WordPress HTTPS (SSL)
[resolved] Quick Cache and Widget Cache won't work with alternate port (4 posts)

    I thought I had everything working two days ago. Everything in admin was secure except that I found ajax-admin.php was insecure through the Chrome developer tools.

    Today, I discovered that Quick Cache has stopped working and Widget Cache had stopped working and I have no idea why. I reverted back to no SSL and they started working again.

    Any ideas? I would hate to have to trawl through those plugins to find the cause without any help from the authors.

    You're assuming the issue is an incompatibility between plugins, which is unlikely. I've used Quick Cache and WordPress HTTPS together fine. Disable WordPress HTTPS and view the site over HTTPS and see if Quick Cache and Widget Cache are having issues still.

    Thanks. I'll do some more testing when I have more time.

    I just read your reply on the other thread. I'm not just a user, I'm also the server administrator... I did everything from the ground up after installing Ubuntu Server. The only issues I ever seem to have are server/plugin incompatibilities and it's usually something simple to fix. Unfortunately, my eyes start to glaze over when I'm poring over a lot of code.

    There are some other things I can check, but I'll have to wait until I have a few hours to dedicate to the task and more than just a couple of hours of sleep. Again, thanks.

    Okay, I'm embarrassed. The port wasn't open for TCP OUT in the firewall, while it was open for TCP IN. I discovered it while working on another site.

    Quick Cache now works but Widget Cache doesn't, but I'm not worried about Widget Cache. Neither are supported anymore and it might be time to switch to total cache anyway.
