WP SSL Redirect

Description

FAQ

Does this plugin install or configure SSL?

No.

Does this plugin make any changes to the file system or database?

No changes are made to file system or the database.

How does WP SSL Redirect perform the redirect?

The plugin makes use of $_SERVER array to check either the URL is accessed over HTTPS or HTTP. If the request is made over HTTP, then the plugin sends a 301 redirect header and performs the redirect to the HTTPS version of the same URL.

301 Redirect is Not Working

If WP_SITEURL and WP_HOME are hardcoded in your WordPress website’s wp-config.php file, then uncomment or delete these two constants, otherwise WP SSL Redirect’s 301 redirect may not work properly.

So I was using Really Simple SSL, which is nice because it has more onsite features, but I NEEDED this plugin to force www to non www and it handles the SSL so, I was able to deactivate the redirection features of Really Simple SSL and just use WP SSL Redirect. This was great, because that meant I didn't have to edit my .htaccess and risk it being overwritten later by a plugin or by saving the permalinks settings or something unknown to me.

After I deactivated this plugin I couldn't use WordPress, I can not sign in again because it is automatically redirecting to another page that is not related to my WordPress site, on the other hand I asked the author to help me to remove codes or database tables but he did not answer my questions.

I was struggling to apply the redirect using htaccess file and WP SSL Redirect saved my day. Thanks for the devs' efforts.
