When I disable “hide backend”, it fixes the issue. Even though I only changed the wp-admin path (and not the registration), it still causes a redirect loop when enabling it. Sucks, since I need to hide the WP-ADMIN path.
There is a conflict between iThemes Security and WordPress HTTPS, or SSL use in general.
In my case it wasn’t turning off “hide backend” option that fixed the problem – this still works. We had to turn “Front End SSL Mode” to ‘off’. SSL still works fine w/this option off.
It’s odd that iThemes Security gives us the message “WARNING: Your server does appear to support SSL. Using these features without SSL support on your server or host will cause some or all of your site to become unavailable.” even though we do have SSL and it works fine.
I believe this is what caused our redirect loop issue – iThemes Security still needs some work on its SSL features…
Running the latest built of WP 3.8.3 and iThemes Security 4.0.23. The problem also existed in the previous versions of both. I’ve been unable to source the problem so had to resort to deactivating the plugin
I’ve set define('ITSEC_SERVER_OVERRIDE', TRUE);
in wp_config.php and it appears that the two plugins are ok together ‘WordPress HTTPS’ is useful to clean some content in my theme to https that I’d have to manually go fix.
can anyone explain what the implications of setting ITSEC_SERVER_OVERRIDE true for a live site?
I am recently experiencing this problem with WP 3.9.1 and Ithemes Security 4.3.7. It was previously functioning fine, but now just reinstalling and activating the plugin causes the redirect loop. Suggestions? Are there database tables I need to clean up? Since I can’t access the plugin other than by deleting or renaming its folder via FTP.
