I'm in the process of setting up WordPress over HTTPS, which is hosted on a Digital Ocean VPS, managed by Serverpilot (though the HTTPS is set up manually, rather than through Serverpilot). The server has a number of WordPress installations, but there is one in particular I wanted to run securely. WordPress in itself is running in a subfolder (so it's located in domain.com/subfolder/).
I've managed to get SSL certificate up and running, as going to the main URL of the site domain.com and sticking a plain HTML on it works over SSL and the padlock's show.
However the WordPress installation enters a redirect loop.
I've done the following:-
Switched all plugins off
Switched to a default theme (Twenty Thirteen)
Updated everything to their latest versions
Changed to default permalinks
I've then changed the siteurl and WordPress URL to https, and then the site gets caught in a Redirect Loop. I use a Redirect Path plugin for Chrome, and it's effectively getting redirected to itself (so https://domain.com/subfolder/ goes through to https://domain.com/subfolder/). Oddly this redirect appears to switch between a 301 and 302 redirect, without any rhyme or reason.
I also had a bit of a play around with WordPress HTTPS, but that wasn't successful either.
Any ideas? Not entirely sure where to go here...
