WordPress HTTPS (SSL)
[Plugin: WordPress HTTPS] strange redirection (6 posts)

    I'm trying to implement a way to have all the admin part with ssl.
    I've installed the plugin.
    My ssl connection is on a hostgator server with a ssl shared certificate.
    I've added the following string to the wp-config file

    define('FORCE_SSL_ADMIN', true);

    in the configuration part of the plugin I flagged the "Shared SSL"
    and added the encripted url

    the problem is that when I try to connect I'm redirected to the site

    I've tryed to remove the ~userid part, but it does not work :(

    any idea?

    Doing the same thing here. The plugin is buggy when using if for shared hosting and FORCE_SSL_ADMIN.

    I have a bunch of code fixes I am testing out, but then maintaining the changes becomes a chore. If anybody wants to test the new code, I can post it somewhere.

    The main changes:

    1. Override the pluggable function wp_redirect().

    2. WP will aggressively change
    a. http://example.com/dir
    b. https://example.com/dir
    when what we want is
    c. https://shared.example2.com/dir2.
    So str_replace(b,c) in a few obvious & obscure places. The b should never appear anywhere, so that makes it easier.

    3. The part of process() at line 221, starting with:
    "$url_path = parse_url($url, PHP_URL_PATH)"
    is completely borked. Replaced all that code.

    4. When editing a page, make the "View page" and "Preview" links stay on HTTPS for all pages. Easier to use it that way.

    5. Clean up a few warnings when in WP debug mode, and remove some empty iterations due to off-by-one.

    I have some good debug functions now.

    Thanks for the help Kitchin.

    My problem is similar, though I'm only trying to force a single frontend page to SSL - with shared SSL certificate.

    I end up with an apache 404 with a message:

    'index.php was not found on this server.'

    I am using %category%/%postname% permalinks.

    Any ideas how I can fix this? Or is this still the same problem as above even though it's not admin?

    I posted part of my fix here: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/plugin-wordpress-https-trying-to-get-property-of-non-object
    but I'm not sure if that's enough to get it working for you.

    @dyrk, I'm trying to do the same thing -- force a couple pages to SSL.

    From what I understand, this isn't supposed to be hard to implement... But the shared base URL from my host (bluehost) doesn't seem to be working
