I've enabled SSL for my main domain but i want to enable it fully for my wordpress website which is located in a subfolder. when i say fully i mean in admin area and the website itself and without any mixed content error.

so first i tried adding these in wp-config:

/* Enable SSL Encryption */
define(‘FORCE_SSL_LOGIN’, true);
define(‘FORCE_SSL_ADMIN’, true);

it resulted in getting mixed content error and "You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page" error after login to the dashboard. i got the same error when i tried to change the blog url and website url in settings. then i used plugins like "https-ssl", "fix mixed content". they didn't do anything good for me either. i'm looking for a way to make that happen

  • In the options did you set the blog URL and home URL to https://... too? – Jörn Lund Oct 6 '14 at 12:43
  • yes i forgot to mention that, after that i got the same error that said "you do not have sufficient permissions". then i used phpmyadmin to access the database to change those addresses back to http version – Conspiria Oct 6 '14 at 13:47
  • After changing it to SSL, try to clear your cookies and then log in again. You won't be able to access the new SSL pages with your old auth cookies. – Otto Oct 6 '14 at 15:04
  • i did that but no luck. the website loads over https but i get this error all over the browser console "Resource interpreted as Image but transferred with MIME type text/html:" – Conspiria Oct 6 '14 at 15:31

I had the same problem and solved it by moving the two define statements up before the require_once that includes wp-settings.php. Seems this was the issue all along.

  • I had found another workaround for that but i just tested your method on an offline example and so far it works very well, i will use it online too, thank you! – Conspiria Mar 1 '15 at 15:56
  • This saved me from another 4 hours of debugging. Thank you! – andersevenrud Jan 12 '17 at 13:37
