Support » Plugin: WordPress HTTPS (SSL) » [Plugin: WordPress HTTPS (SSL)] Child pages return WordPress generated 404 pages

  • I recently upgrade to WordPress 3.4.1. Now I encounter a WordPress generated 404 error page whenever I try to access a child page from the frontend.

    I went through all my plugins and deactivated them. Deactivating WordPress HTTPS fixed the problem (using version 3.1.1 of the plugin).

    With that plugin activated, disabling custom permalinks also fixed the problem. I would like to leave the permalinks intact if possible.

    I switched over to the Twenty Eleven theme. The problem still existed, so I switched back to my custom theme.

    The child pages give 404s whether or not the pages are designated HTTPS secured, and whether or not the parent is designated HTTPS secured.

  • Heya David! I got 404 errors with my secure pages as well. I rolled back to version 3.0.4 of the plugin and that problem went away for me.

    For now you can download the version 3.0.4 here. Then unzip it and FTP it up to your server replacing the 3.1.1 version. I’m thinking that should allow you to keep the pages you need secure without the 404 errors.

    Hopefully the plugin developer will be able to fix whatever change is causing all the 404 errors in the next release.

    I never experienced any of these issues in testing, but I have a theory. I may have inadvertently fixed this. Updated to 3.1.2 and let me know if the problem persists.



    Thanks for the quick fix.
    I have the same problem and after installing 3.1.2, it is still there. – works – works – does not work, Error 404

    Ah, multisite using folders not subdomains. That makes more sense. I’ll look into it.

    Still having trouble after installing 3.1.2.

    I’m not using multisite, and the 404 errors come whether or not the page or its parent is designated HTTPS secured. (the site home page) – works (a normal page of the site) – works (a page that has section as its parent) – returns WordPress generated 404

    For what it’s worth the pages I’m securing in my site are all child pages as well.

    Version 3.1.2 still throws 404 errors for those handful of child pages I’m securing on my main site. When I roll back to 3.0.4 it works fine.

    I may need to devise a fix on one of your servers. If I can’t reproduce it, it’s kind of hard to fix it.

    I just posted a more thorough explanation of what I’m seeing on this thread here.
