Multisite + SSL + Marketpress > redirect loop (6 posts)

    I was working to figure out a way to apply https to the entire domain which is a mapped sub site in a network. One of the recommendations was

    { define( 'SUNRISE', 'on' ); }

    When this was added to the wp-config file, it caused the existing secure pages to go into a redirect loop and now cannot be accessed. I of course removed the snippet, but it is stuck in redirect loop.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Furthermore - how should I go about securing the entire domain?

  2. *blink* Why would that... Okay.

    You want to have ONE mapped domain on your network be https? Why ... I JUST did that myself for https://store.halfelf.org :)

    In wp-config:

    if ( $_SERVER["HTTP_HOST"] == "store.halfelf.org" ) {
        define('FORCE_SSL_ADMIN', true);
        define('FORCE_SSL_LOGIN', true);

    in .htaccess:

    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^store\.halfelf\.org
    RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} !443
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://store.halfelf.org/$1 [R,L]

    And then install and activate the WordPress HTTPS plugin for this site.

    hey @Ipstenu,

    This did secure login and dashboard, but that isn't the issue. If you add something to the cart and then try to go to http://hazelwoodsoapcompany.com/store/shopping-cart/shipping/ It just goes into a redirect loop and fails.

  4. Did you do all three steps? The .htaccess and the plugin are the important ones for the front end.

    Ok, making progress. Looks like there are just a few links that are throwing it... I think. Things like a coding comment by yoast. Do these things apply?

  6. A coding ... comment?

    I don't think the https plugin handles comments.

    My biggest problem was my background image. I had to delete it and re-add it as https. Then I just viewed page srouce and looked for http://
