WordPress HTTPS (SSL)
[resolved] WordPress Log In HTTPS Problems (3 posts)

    I installed this plug in and because of the Javascript in the theme we were using, we decided to uninstall the plug in since it wasn't working properly.

    Anyways, the plug in has been uninstalled and deleted, but when we go to SimpleSEOGroup.com/wp-admin it redirects to a HTTPS page. When we try to log in with our user name and password, it continually redirects us to this URL:


    We have no way of getting into the admin CP at this point as we are continually redirected. Any ideas on this or what files this plug in may have modified to cause this?

    I love when I do this--solve my own problem.

    Here are the steps to solving this issue but be careful as it involves editing the actual SQL database.

    Log in to your host's website and go to phpMyAdmin (with some hosts you may have to ask them to do this for you).

    You're going to click on the database for your wordpress install, then go to wp-options

    From here you are looking for two different rows, one called siteurl and one called home. Once you find them hit edit and make sure your site url is correct (in this case mine contained HTTTPS instead of HTTP which appears to have caused this issue). Fix the siteurl and home, hit save, and you are hopefully good to go!

    Hey SimpleSEOGroup,

    Just saw this after I responded to the email you sent. Glad to see you got it figured out.

    I would like to note that the plugin does not change your site_url or home_url.

    Let me know if you have any other issues.
