[resolved] SSL login problem - can't delete plug or access WP-Admin (4 posts)

    I made a huge mistake. I downloaded this plugin and put it on our live site http://www.ilovechile.cl news site. We were going through the basic changes and we set use ssl for admin part of the site.
    Now none of us can log in to the admin side of the site.

    we have tried deleting the plugin, we have tried removing it from the DB, we have deleted the .htaccess and nothing we can not access the admin side of the website and it keeps redirecting us to https which of course gives us a page not found or 404

    I am sure it is something simple but we can not figure it out and now we are falling behind the news cycle as we can not upload news articles.

    Any help at all?

    get a backup of the .htaccess and remove everything in it.

    I put up a blank .htaccess I put in the simple WP .htaccess and still the admin page is being redirected to https which gives up the 404 page not found.
    I checked in the phpMyadmin in options to see if the site URL had been changed but it is normal http
    We have no access at all to http://www.ilovechile.cl/wp-admin or http://www.ilovechile.cl/login.php
    Any ideas? Do the programmers of the plugin come to this forum ?

    OK I found a solution for us (in case anyone else runs into the same problem)

    OPEN your wp-config.php

    The first line will be something like: define( 'FORCE_SSL_ADMIN', true );

    Change it to:
    define( 'FORCE_SSL_ADMIN', false );

    that should give you access. Work for us at least.
