Support » Plugin: iThemes Security (formerly Better WP Security) » admin page does not load after enabling https

  • Everything was working fine until I enabled the https setting for my login in page only. Now the login page won’t load.
    I am a novice, so please be specific with what I need to do.
    I am using google chrome on a Macbook Air.
    The error message I receive is Error 118 (net::ERR_CONNECTION_TIMED_OUT): The operation timed out.
    It asks me to deselect any proxy settings. When I go into my network’s system preferences there are no proxies selected.
    What do I have to do allow me to login over a secure connection?

  • Same thing happened to me today.
    I manually went into the wpconfig.php file and removed the following lines found at the top.

    define( 'FORCE_SSL_LOGIN', true );
    define( 'FORCE_SSL_ADMIN', true );

    That allowed me to get back in. Just make sure you change the settings NOT to enable SSL.
