Support » Fixing WordPress » https installed on host, no wp admin

  • Have recently got my hosting co to successfully transfer my site from http to https and most software now works, including Cpanel, Filezilla and email. Have used some online advice from wpbeginner.com to alter .htaccess and wp-config files but still can’t seem to upgrade in the ‘Dashboard’
    I could probably sftp the new files and overwrite the previous but don’t have too many spare hours to do this, would love to upgrade thru WP-admin….any constructive help gratefully received.

    Cheers, Tom

  • There’s no reason to ftp anything. Your site already loads through https:// and for the dashboard see https://codex.wordpress.org/Administration_Over_SSL

    Thanks sinip, I did add the define(‘FORCE_SSL_ADMIN’, true); to the wp-config.php but that doesn’t seem to help.

    I’ve added the following lines to the .htaccess file, can you see any problems with that?

    RewriteEngine on

    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>

    rewriteEngine On

    rewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} 80

    rewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://www.aviceda.org/$1 [R,L]

    </IfModule>

    Sorry, I’m not that good with .htaccess 🙂
    And a question. I can reach your wp-login.php page with https:// so what happens after you login? You get thrown back to http://?
