[Plugin: WordPress HTTPS] Have site on non-standard port, can't make SSL admin working

  • Hi

    I’m running a blog on my home server. Unfortunately my ISP blocks incoming connections on ports 80 and 8080, so I have to use non-standard port. Blog URL is http://yoush.homelinux.org:8079/

    I’m looking for a way to have login and admin pages served over SSL. my web server listens at standard https port (443), and is able to serve static content over SSL.

    But I can’t find a way to do so. I tried to follow instructions from http://codex.wordpress.org/Administration_Over_SSL and set FORCE_SSL_ADMIN to true, but got login/admin URLs starting with https://yoush.homelinux.org:8079/ – which does not work (because https is served at different port). I tried to install wordpress-https plugin ans set up “shared ssl” there to https://yoush.homelinux.org/ – but that does not change anything.

    Any hints?

    Hey Yoush,

    The ‘Shared SSL’ feature should work for this purpose. When you tried it, did you also have FORCE_SSL_ADMIN enabled?

    Thanks,
    Mike

    Hello Mvied.

    Just retried this setup: FORCE_SSL_ADMIN set to true, wordpress-https activated, all checkboxes at wordpress-https setting page other than “shared ssl” unchecked, “shared ssl” checked, “shared ssl url” set to https://yoush.homelinux.org/, also tried https://yoush.homelinux.org:443/

    Still admin links on the main page point to https://yoush.homelinux.org:8079/

    This is what server returns right now.

    Something going wrong here?

    Hey Yoush,

    SSL in the admin panel is something I implemented after testing it myself, but only some users can get it to work. I imagine this is due to different hosting environments and WordPress version & plugin variations.

    Basically, this feature needs some polishing. If you could let me test the plugin on your server, either on your site or a blank WordPress installation, that would be greatly appreciated.

    If not, that’s fine too, I just won’t be able to offer much more help. 🙂

    Thanks,
    Mike

    I think debugging on my site is possible.

    Could you please contact me in jabber at nikita@lvk.cs.msu.su ?
