  • Is it possible to fully lock down a wordpress site using SSL???? I’m not a newbie at using wordpress but I’m no Jedi Master either. I have placed https on all links throughout and I still can’t get the site to fully lock down. I have all required elements in place, the dedicated IP, full SSL certificate. I’ve made php test files that lock down with no errors so I know this is a wordpress issue. Any help would be very appreciated.

    Sorry about the link name, I’m only the developer not the owner of it.

  • Hi! To force https(SSL) without having to use any weird plugins or anything (if you are using an Apache server), open your .htaccess file and add this to it:

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteCond %{HTTPS} off
    RewriteRule (.*) https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI}

    That will force SSL on EVERY page. Also remember to restart Apache when you are done:
    /etc/init.d/httpd restart
    Hope that helps 🙂

    I tried the same and got This webpage has a redirect loop. And it is causing the site to fail.

    t3footie, could you please tell us how you fix it?
