Problem of WP when using HTTPS addresses (via .htaccess file)

  • When using the following .htaccess file in my wp top folder:
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteCond %{HTTPS} off
    RewriteRule (.*) https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI}

    wp will not save any content on posts, pages
    (only the Title is kept when saving or publishing).

    The problem with not being able to use the secure HTTPS is
    that “without https you are sending your passwords in plain text across the internet” (re: my sys. admin.)

    NB: Contrarily to what others have said here (other posts):
    “You don’t have to pay for a commercially signed certificate
    [when using HTTPS] – you can (and we do) use a free self-signed certificate that works just as well, at least in terms of allowing the use of https encryption.” (again, from my sys. admin.)

    It would be good if there was a solution that would not break WP
    (2.3.1) and allow us to use secure access to our blogs..

  • I tried to do this with this plugin, but I also got error pages for every page that comes from /wp-admin. The “s” is added, but WP (or my server) doesn’t recognise them as ‘being there’. I haven’t really tried to solve it, I just deleted the plugin.
