Support » Plugin: WordPress HTTPS (SSL) » Shared SSL and permalinks problem

  • Resolved skinnybloke


    Hi – I want to apply SSL to about 4 pages of my site which visitors will only see when they go through a checkout procedure.

    I have a shared SSL certificate and the SSL pages only display when I set the permalinks to be default. Otherwise I get a 404 error.

    I really want the site to display Pretty Permalinks for all pages and posts on the site, but I am willing to compromise on these 4 pages.

    Therefore, my question is, can I set all pages to be Pretty Permalinks except these 4 SSL pages, which need to be set as default pages? If so, how?

    No. If you want to use permalinks, you can’t use that shared SSL.

    you can try to add the following line to your functions.php

    $_SERVER[“REQUEST_URI”] = preg_replace(‘^/~username/‘, ”, $_SERVER[“REQUEST_URI”]);

    This solved the 404 error with my shared SSL host and permalinks

    vsip, where did you add those lines to your functions.php?
