Support » Plugin: WordPress MU Domain Mapping » Redirect admin pages to original domain BEFORE cert check?

  • We’re at domain.com, and have some mapped domains, such as mapped.com, and are trying to serve the dashboard (only) over SSL.

    We have the option set to redirect administration pages back to the site’s original domain. We can correctly use the dashboard over SSL if we type in the original domain of domain.com/mapped/wp-admin. However, if I type in mapped.com/wp-admin/, my browser is presenting me with the big warnings about a non-private connection.

    Would it be possible to redirect me to domain.com/mapped/wp-admin BEFORE this warning would disappear, thus making it go away?

  • To possibly clarify this a little more:

    When I request http://mapped.com/wp-admin , at some point WordPress is identifying that that needs to be served over https. It seems that this is occuring BEFORE the domain mapping plugin is identifying that this should be served as http://oringinaldomain.com/mapped/wp-admin.

    It would remove a lot of headaches if DM could check the domain and redirect appropriately BEFORE WordPress decides that this needs to be served over https and does that redirect.

    Are you sure it’s not your webserver? sunrise.php loads fairly early in the WP stack.

    Relatively sure, and unfortunately, I don’t believe that the behavior I’d like is actually possible at the PHP level. I’m going to try to see if it’s possible with .htaccess, but I don’t actually believe it is.

    I did some investigation with Firebug’s network panel, and browsers are actually just aborting the request basically immediately whenever I try to access the https version of a domain with a valid certificate, as described originally.

    Actually, now that I think about it, the cert check is handshake between your browser & the webserver before request gets handed off to WP.

    I’m running into this same problem. I think the best way to handle this might be to make all of the Admin Bar Links use the Network Domain instead of the Mapped Domain.

    Still looking for how to do this in a straight forward way though.

    @ron – any idea how to make the Admin Bar Links use the Network Domain instead of the Mapped Domain?
