For the past two months we have been trying to operate a multisite at a hosting company that claimed they were optimized for WordPress. We had them install an SSL certificate and asked for it to be applied to specific folders, but they couldn't do it.
Shortly after they attempted to fulfill our request, our URL began displaying like this:
We began using CloudFlare to improve the performance of the website and because we could not use the SSL certificate the way we had planned, we asked them to remove it.
We had more than 400 pages on the index and now it's down to about 20. I have exchanged numerous emails with our hosting company,and they believe that this is due to either an internal script, a cron job or incorrect input of the domain name.
We have searched every table in our database and went through every plugin and cannot find anything that would cause this error.
We have checked both our .htaccess file and the wp-config.php file and wp-settings files and found nothing.
Does anyone know what would cause the one url to be appended to another as in http://ourdomain.com/a-page-on-wordpress/https://ourdomain.com/a-page-on-wordpress/ and a solution to fix this problem?
We are using the Catalyst template, with these plugins:
Random Rotating Ads V2
WordPress Image Compressor
I really need help understanding what going on and how to fix this problem.
