WordPress HTTPS gives misconfiguration error. (8 posts)

    I am running a site on a Logic server. They have set up my site to use their shared certificate. They say that my main URL should be recognized by the certificate.

    I activate HTTPS and tic the "secure post" box on the page. When I try to open that page, I get a warning that states, "This is probably no the site you are looking for! You attempted to reach (my main URL), but instead instead you actually reached a server identifying itself as (a completely different URL with the logix name in it). This may be caused by a misconfiguration on the server or by something more serious. You should not proceed" and then I have the option of "proceed anyway" or "back to safety."

    If I click "proceed anyway," the https:// in teh URL is marked out in red, and the error message says, "Not Found - The requested URL (page URL minus the main .com part) was not found on this server."

    If I go into the plugin and tell it to use the URL it says I'm actually targeting, the error says, "Not Found - The requested URL (main URL that is not mine, but the certificate, plus the rest of the page URL) was not found on this server."

    Is this a misconfig by the host, or am I doing something wrong?

    Sorry, that should say Logix server, not Logic.

    If you're using their Shared SSL certificate using HTTPS on your domain will not work. You need to enter the shared SSL host information into the SSL Host field in the WordPress HTTPS Settings.

    Okay, so I put in the shared host info and set Proxy to yes. Still getting first error message I mentioned above. Grabbed the debug from console:

    [BEGIN WordPress HTTPS Debug Log]

    Version: 3.1.2

    HTTP URL: http://www.myURL.com/

    HTTPS URL: https://shared certificate URL.net

    SSL: No

    Diff Host: Yes

    Subdomain: Yes

    Proxy: Yes

    Secure External URLs: [ ]

    Unsecure External URLs: [ ]

    [END WordPress HTTPS Debug Log]

    Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'length' of undefined

    allow right click initializing for http://www.myURL.com/

    allow right click processing http://www.myURL.com/

    Not sure where to go from here. maybe I need to put in a different port? Thanks for responding so quickly before. :)

    What page were you on when you got the debug log? Are you sure you need to enable the Proxy feature? Did you try Auto before that?

    Just email me the links if you don't want to post them. It's a lot easier to just see what's going on. My email is mike[at]mvied[dot]com.

    Maybe a breakthrough? Downloaded and installed the developmental version of the plugin. Used the host path recommended by the hosting company. Under domain mapping, set the unsecured URL of the page I want to secure to go to sec.templar.logixcom.net/limousinworld/subscriptions/order-limousin-world-online and now the certificate sticks, but I get an error saying it can't find index.php. Is this progress?

    In this thread a user mentions adding ErrorDocument 404 /index.php to your .htaccess. Give that a shot. I've never had any experience with dealing with these Shared SSL's, so I'm just guessing.
