I migrated a WordPress 4.3 site from Register.com to MediaTemple today and found that the forced SSL is causing issues for the staging URL.
In order to try again I have (on the live Register.com site)
- Disabled plugin 'WordPress HTTPS'
define( 'FORCE_SSL_ADMIN', true );from wp-config
- In General Settings replaced https w http for URLs and saved
- Saved permalinks just in case
- verified that .htaccess is not redirecting to https via mod_rewrite
Tried logging out and accessing site and still get redirected from http to https.
Assuming my predecessor has not done anything truly crazy what am I missing there? Where should I look?
