I’m using Shared Hosting, with https enabled on it.
When I place Wordpress php files into the site, http displays things fine, while https is displaying incomplete/buggy webpage (no CSS, no pictures)
Modifying “wp_options” -> “siteurl” and “home” in order to write https instead of http, does nothing helpful : the wp-admin isn’t available anymore (redirection loop). Same problem when adding to wp-config.php :
//Use HTTPS for WordPress define('WP_HOME','https://www.luoss.fr/wordpress'); define('WP_SITEURL','https://www.luoss.fr/wordpress'); define('FORCE_SSL_ADMIN', true);
I saw on the documentation that a plugin can be used (Really Simple SSL). It solves the problem, but it’s not fine. I don’t want to place an unofficial plugin containing thousands of workaround code lines to simply enable something simple that should have been working out of the box.
When I put a wordpress into an Apache2 / Linux server with https enabled, Wordpress on https works fine out of the box without any thing to do or any unofficial crap to install.
If somebody knows what is malfunctioning with the default Wordpress installation, HTTPS, and Online.net Shared Hosting, I’m interested !
Thank you in advance
