    I clicked "Force SSL Administration" and now I can't log in to WordPress. I get redirected to a login page, but none of my credentials work.

    H E L P ! ! !

    I tried this solution. Didn't work.

    Go to your wp-config.php file and add this line. Hit any page on your site, and then remove it.

    define('WPHTTPS_RESET', true);

    Hey pdxmission,

    The error you're describing is caused by a bug in the plugin that's not setting admin cookies correctly. After using WPHTTPS_RESET, you should be able to go back to your regular admin URL and login.

    If not, your other option is to go into the database and run this query.
    DELETE FROM wp_options WHERE option_name LIKE 'wordpress-https%';

    This will wipe all options for the plugin, the same as WPHTTPS_RESET.
