WordPress HTTPS (SSL)
WordPress 3.3 + WordPress HTTPS 2.0.4 + non-default port (2 posts)

    I'm running a wordpress blog at http://yoush.homelinux.org:8079/
    It is at non-default port because I run it on home server, and my ISP blocks incoming connections on port 80.

    Some months ago I've already tried WordPress HTTPS and failed because it tried to connect to https://yoush.homelinux.org:8079/ which failed, because web server does not understand https at port 8079

    I've just tried again, and now it tries https://yoush.homelinux.org/ - which is correct.
    However, when plugin is activated, non-ssl pages are being redirected from http://yoush.homelinux.org:8079/ to http://yoush.homelinux.org/ - which is incorrect.

    This wget transcript shows the problem:

    nikita@blacky:/srv/wordpress> LANG=C wget -O- http://yoush.homelinux.org:8079/
    --2011-12-18 01:42:40-- http://yoush.homelinux.org:8079/
    Resolving yoush.homelinux.org...
    Connecting to yoush.homelinux.org||:8079... connected.
    HTTP request sent, awaiting response... 301 Moved Permanently
    Location: http://yoush.homelinux.org/ [following]

    Could this be somehow fixed?
    What I need is http served from port 8079 and https served from default port.

    Hey yoush,

    I never really considered this configuration, but I'm sure with a few changes to the plugin, this could be supported. I'll get a fix out in the next version and update this topic when I do.
