Support » Plugin: WordPress HTTPS (SSL) » [Plugin: WordPress HTTPS (SSL)] 410 redirect loop with "Force SSL Exclusively"

    With new version 3.2,

    enabling “force ssl exclusively” causes the 401 Too Many Redirects when trying to visit any Admin Area. I already had it enabled prior to upgrading this plugin. Upgrade immediately cause redirect loop 410.

    Did a reset of the plugin to get back into admin. Was able to isolate the 410 to enabling Force SSL Exclusively

    Site pages work OK (other than the fact that I want to Force SSL Exclusively)

    This did not occur with previous version of wordpress-https plugin.

    wp-config
    define(‘FORCE_SSL_ADMIN’, true);
    define(‘FORCE_SSL_LOGIN’, true);

  • I got an ‘error 310 too many redirects’ for the admin area after enabling Force SSL Exclusively. I also did a reset of the plugin to get back into the admin. Is there a fix? Thanks.

    I got the same error with the same isolation. too many redirects. Basically, what I gather, wp-config is sending admin/login requests to SSL. However, HTTPS plugin thinks it should force it exclusively and redirects to HTTP which then redirects to HTTPS due to wp-config settings and then the redirect loop begins.

    For now, I was able to change my wp-config settings to false. then I turned on in the HTTPS plugin settings to Force SSL Administration. I’d rather not do that. I’d rather do that setting in the wp-config file. Definitely think this is a bug.

    I’ll have a fix out in the next release. If you’d like, try the development version and let me know if it works for you.
