    Hi,

    I cannot seem to get mixed content to display correctly on my multisite install. Check out the test page, which says no SSL detected yet ironically has the padlock icon: https://corgisdoingstuff.com/wp-content/plugins/really-simple-ssl/ssl-test-page.php

    And of course if you visit the site, there’s a ton of mixed content that I cannot seem to figure out how to redirect to https.

    Do you know what the issue could be?

    Thanks!
    Cliff

    FYI if it matters, my main URL for the multisite is http://despeaux.consulting

    Hi Cliff,

    I don’t really have enough information yet. Can you post the output of the debug log in settings/ssl?
    How is the current redirect handle, is that done by Really Simple SSL?

    The message on the testpage does not mean no SSL was detected, only that none of the most used server variables were passed for the plugin to use.

    In such cases, Really Simple SSL tries to insert
    $_SERVER[“https”] = “on”;

    Into the wp-config, but on multisite you can only do this if you have activated networkwide: otherwise the non-ssl sites will also be forced to SSL.

    Because WordPress depends on for example $_SERVER[“https”] = “on” to check if the site is on SSL, this needs to be set for the site work.

    If you haven’t enabled SSL yet, you can do so by following these steps:

    THANK YOU so much — will look into what you posted now. Here is the log output:

    Options:
    * Mixed content fixer
    SERVER: apache
    MULTISITE
    SSL is being activated per site
    SSL is not yet enabled for this site
    ** Detecting configuration **
    plugin version: 2.5.11
    Opening testpage to check for ssl: https://corgisdoingstuff.com/wp-content/plugins/really-simple-ssl/ssl-test-page.php
    test page url, enter in browser to check manually: https://corgisdoingstuff.com/wp-content/plugins/really-simple-ssl/ssl-test-page.php
    No ssl detected. No certificate, or the testpage is blocked by security settings. The ssl testpage returned the error:

    Also, here is the log after I enabled it across the multisite:

    I just realized that the output is the same (whoops, sorry for pasting the output twice)

    Thank you for your support! Good news: adding $_SERVER["HTTPS"] = "on"; to wp-config.php fixed the issue!
