SSL on IIS Network with Proxy Problems (2 posts)

    This seems like it's a doozy...but hopefully not.

    We're running WordPress 3.1.2. It's a a Network of Sites and we use sub-directories not sub-domains. It's running with a reverse-proxy.

    Today we added the ssl to IIS and added

    define('FORCE_SSL_LOGIN', true);
    define('FORCE_SSL_ADMIN', true);

    to the wp-config.php file.

    The sites aren't accessible.

    We did not change anything in our url rewrite in the web.config but aren't sure that this si required. Also, the info available on WP is for apache and not iis.
    We also tried the WordPress-HTTPS plugin but that didn't help and ther's no support on that forum. We uninstalled it.

    Any ideas what might be going on or how I can troubleshoot this? I'm in unfamiliar waters!

    Apaprently our webserver's IP disassociated with the Reverse-proxy server. Once it was reassociated we were able to use the FORCE elements in the wp-config to force ssl on our login and our admin pages. No plugins required.
