I have multiple Wordpress installations hosted at Hostinger.

Sometimes, when I save a post or, as happened right now, just tried to access wp-admin, it redirects me to HTTPS version of the website.

It happens randomly with all my websites, I just type in the address again and it works normally.

It's a strange bug, my settings are set to HTTP, I don't know much else to say. Anyone got any ideas to debug this?

Thanks a lot!

  • Do you have "HTTPS Everywhere" or similar in your browser? – Athoxx Dec 15 '16 at 14:54
  • No, I tried it on my phone (3G), my sister's computer, my laptop and my PC - all gave the same error, even in fresh websites I tested in Hostinger - it's server side – Lucas Bustamante Dec 15 '16 at 19:06
  • Yes it does seem like a server-side error. – Athoxx Dec 16 '16 at 7:24
  • I’m just going to say it: “Add https to your site!!! It’s easy. Visit letsencrypt.org.” If your host doesn’t offer https for free, do it yourself! – Nathan Powell May 31 '18 at 5:29

Finally, after MONTHS I was able to solve it.

Just add


To wp-config.php, preferably before calling wp-settings.php

Thanks to Daan Meijer for this.

PS: It was a server-side error, probably something to do with PHP process manager such as php-fpm or mod_php. The hosting company solved it without the need for the hack above.
