Wordpress SSL/TLS status does not update accordingly when SSL certificate is installed




  • Avatar

    The proposed method when not using the advisor does not work when having a multisite installation.

    In this case, the database changes as proposed at https://webdevstudios.com/2015/02/11/how-to-set-up-https-on-wordpress/ help to get this done.

    I remember, that I had login problems with that multsite installation beforehand, and right now, I was wondering whether the problem actually occured since I first relied on using the Advisor securing method. So maybe someone a Plesk can check: Create a new Wordpress installation (non-TLS), convert it into a multisite installation (with subdirectories for the new sites) and then try to enable TLS. Can it be that in this case the advisor securing method breaks the login?

    Hi @b_p,

    Thank you for the feedback!

    I followed the mentioned steps:

    1. Created a new Wordpress installation without SSL/TLS enabled
    2. Converted it into a multisite installation with "Sub-domains"
    3. Enabled SSL/TLS via "Plesk > Domains > example.com > Advisor > Secure WordPress Websites | Switch to HTTPS"

    However, it did not break the logging to the WordPress possibility
