WordPress HTTPS (SSL)
[Plugin: WordPress HTTPS] login in loop (6 posts)

    I have forced login over shared SSL when trying to access members area (currently called 'test'), but goes back to login screen not the redirect page. I assume this because cookies are not being set for the http domain. Any thoughts please?

    Guess that your setup sets a cookie for https, but it catches itself in a loop since that cookie won't work for http. Why don't you throw it all into the https ring? After all, you have SSL in place - use it by simply setting it up in the configuration. (and probalby a small 301 in the htaccess to make it seamless).

    Not sure my host would appreciate everything going through the shared https. I did think that the plugin should handle this with too much tweaking.

    I'm working on getting the plugin to redirect admin requests through the Shared SSL when FORCE_SSL_ADMIN or FORCE_SSL_LOGIN is being used. It is the last feature I need to add before I push out the next version, so I should have it done shortly.

    FORCE_SSL_ (set in the config) is working ok in itself, but the redirect to http is not setting the necessary cookies.

    Hey Losgaz,

    I'm currently working on the next version which should correctly set cookies and get Shared SSL working with the admin panel. For now, I would comment out the FORCE_SSL_ lines from your wp-config.php until I've completed it. I'll post here as soon as it's done.

    Thanks,
    Mike
