iThemes Security (formerly Better WP Security)
Redirect Loop after enabling plugin (5 posts)

    Even with 0 settings enabled in the plugin, as long as it's active, I receive a redirect loop for my "registration" page. http://www.domain.com/register

    When I disable "hide backend", it fixes the issue. Even though I only changed the wp-admin path (and not the registration), it still causes a redirect loop when enabling it. Sucks, since I need to hide the WP-ADMIN path.

    One of my sites has the same issue.

    There is a conflict between iThemes Security and WordPress HTTPS, or SSL use in general.

    In my case it wasn't turning off "hide backend" option that fixed the problem - this still works. We had to turn "Front End SSL Mode" to 'off'. SSL still works fine w/this option off.

    It's odd that iThemes Security gives us the message "WARNING: Your server does appear to support SSL. Using these features without SSL support on your server or host will cause some or all of your site to become unavailable." even though we do have SSL and it works fine.

    I believe this is what caused our redirect loop issue - iThemes Security still needs some work on its SSL features...

    Hey Rak-nyc,

    Thanks for the information! What version are you experiencing this with? Could you update to v4.0.21 and let me know if that helps?

    I'm having the very same problem.

    Running the latest built of WP 3.8.3 and iThemes Security 4.0.23. The problem also existed in the previous versions of both. I've been unable to source the problem so had to resort to deactivating the plugin
