WordPress SSL and reverse proxy. Redirection error (1 post)

    I have a web that have to run behind a reverse proxy, and the login and administration panel must be under SSL

    Proxy url: http://example.com
    Real url: http://example-prep.com (where wordpress is installed)

    Everything works ok, but when i try to access administration panel using http://example.com/wp-admin or http://example.com/wp-login.php it redirects to https://example-prep.com/wp-login.php (I have FORCE_SSL_LOGIN and FORCE_SSL_ADMIN activated),so the proxy doesn't recognize the direction and firefox returns server not found error.

    I think the problem is in wp-login.php with the value returned by HTTP_HOST

    // Redirect to https login if forced to use SSL
    if ( force_ssl_admin() && !is_ssl() ) {
    if ( 0 === strpos($_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'], 'http') ) {
    wp_redirect(preg_replace('|^http://|', 'https://', $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI']));
    } else {
    wp_redirect('https://' . $_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'] . $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI']);

    Is there any solution to force wordpress to take the proxy url instead the real url like it must be?
