    Hope this may help others:

    On a WordPress 3.8 installation with three sites which is administered over SSL only the upgrade to 3.8 went smoothly, but after that the network upgrade failed with an SSL error.

    The solution I found was to temporarily disable

    `define(‘FORCE_SSL_ADMIN’, true);

    in wp-config.php, doing the network upgrade over HTTP and enabling HTTPS afterwards again.

  • It turned out that there was indeed a small problem with the SSL certificate (an intermediate certificate was missing). WordPress seems to check more thoroughly than most browsers.

    I’ve been looking for this line:
    `define(‘FORCE_SSL_ADMIN’, true);
    Cannot seem to find it. Should it be added? If so, where?
