Support » Networking WordPress » Problem SSL with mixed content and ghost URL

  • Resolved Irene



    I migrate a few month ago to from http to https, a multisite with only two subsites. The main site is redirected to the Spanish version. redirects to
    And the other subsite is

    Before I had a Inmotion shared hosting, Comodo free certificate from my host, and I get the green padlock easily.

    Now a changed server to Cloudways and I have Lets Encrypt certificate. First I setup certificate for non www, and I had the green padlock display without problem. Then I add to certificate, also domain with www, and since then green padlock changed to gray https.

    I have an error message for insecure content, detected with chrome console:
    Mixed Content: The page at ‘ ‘ was loaded over HTTPS, but requested an insecure image ‘’. This content should also be served over HTTPS.
    As you see, this URL belongs to the main site that is empty and I do not use, and this site is redirected. I had this error when I had the Comodo Certificate, but didn’t prevent the green padlock to display.

    I checked:
    -Certificates are ok.
    – Looked in the source code of the page, and the URL is not there.
    – Scan the site db with better search and replace and there is not such URL with http
    -I disable all the plugins and nothing changed. Also changed the theme of the main site.
    – I scanned the site with screamingfrog for insecure content, and did not find any error.
    – I load Really Simple SSL plugin and didn’t help
    Any clue how I could find a solution to this error?

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

  • I also checked with a search, for hard coded url:, in the wp-content folder



    I solved the issue.
    I found that the theme was trying to load an image background (which had never setup, inexistent, and wrong url) at the same time that a color background.
    I went to the customizer, look for the background and changed the color, saved, and this fixed the error.
