    Hi all,

    Yes, I changed the configuration option back. The very last line in wp-config.php reads:

    define('FORCE_SSL_ADMIN', false);

    I am having to switch from a situation of trying to get WordPress to do SSL for any administrative functions (including logins) to not doing this.

    This is pretty urgent. I have had to move the installation to another server. And I am unable to get https working. I can view pages on the site fine just as long as I don’t try to log in or post.

    The new setup is intended to use nginx on a Linode as a proxy to my old laptop, which has had the database all along and runs Apache. My attempts to get WordPress running under nginx failed miserably. There is a lot of bad advice out there on the web and a lot of inapplicable advice on what to do about a 502 Bad Gateway error when using nginx as a proxy. (Error logs indicate a problem with SSL handshaking.)

    But since I’ve got OpenVPN–and that works fine, without any of the wonkiness associated with Apache SSL configuration–I have no real need for WordPress to serve SSL. The nginx frontend seems to handle that very well, even getting the right SSL certificates (which I could never persuade Apache to reliably do). But WordPress keeps on forcing SSL. And I need it to stop. Desperately.

    What can I do?

    Thanks!
