I want to have SSL access to the admin part of my wordpress site, or at least to be able to login over SSL.
I know how to force SSL admin/login in wp-config.php.
I am considering getting shared hosting and using the server’s shared SSL certificate seems to be a reasonable option.
It seems to me that for this I need to be able to go be able to access the admin area of my site at
while accessing my public site at
Can this be done?
I understand that there is a plugin that does this, WordPress SSL, but it has not been updated for 2 years already.
This 4-year old article
suggests some simple code in wp-config.php but I do not know whether it would work with the current versions of WordPress and stuff.
Here http://forum.inmotionhosting.com/viewtopic.php?f=34&t=37742 there are more complicated suggestions which are 3 years old.
I am sure this is an issue that lots of people have been thinking about but I have not found anything more recent.
