    Hi, I have subfolder multisite and I added SSL cert along with really simple ssl plugin, everything works well for my main site, but wp-admin for all sufolders are not accessible and also the pages on subfolders not displaying properly, on google chrome inspect section I am seeing too many below errors:
    Failed to load resource
    server responded with a status of 404 ()



    Re-saving the permalinks often resolves the issue. You can check some possible solutions here:

    Let me know if this helps!


    Thanks for reply, every subfolders work perfectly but /fa , I did the following:
    1-deleted /fa site,
    made a new site /fa , activated my theme (newspaper) —> same problem
    2-deleted /fa site
    made a new site /test , activate my theme —> works fine
    my conclusion: there should be something wrong with /fa

    I have checked Stop “editing the .htaccess file” settings for all the subfolders (/ /fa /ge /ru) and reverted back the .htaccess to default(multisite), and observed all of subfolders are working fine with SSL and even /fa is looking nicer, but still some imagaes are not there and the structure is not acceptable


    It sounds as if you have mixed content on that site. Check this article how to track down these issues:

    Can’t say why /fa does not work with the generic redirect, and all others do. Maybe you have a page or category that is also called fa, that conflicts with the /fa ?

    All my images and CSS’s are not showing when using https. Is there any way you can help solve this issue?
    I have run a scan with Pro version but no error is found.


    Hi Arturo,

    if you could open a support ticket at and include the url of your website I’ll be happy to help you.

    Images and CSS are not showing when using https://
    Can you please help me fix this issue?


    Hi Arturo,

    Your images do not load because of 403 forbidden errors. This is probably due to hot link protection on your server, see also this article:

    I have installed the pro version but keep on getting error message:
    You haven’t activated your Really Simple SSL pro license yet. To get all future updates, enter your license on the settings page. Go to the settings page or purchase a license


    In settings/ssl/license you can save the license, then click “activate”. Then the message should go away.

    Hi I purchased the pro version of really simple ssl and everything is working over ssl on my site except when I try to browse to my sub folder to get a pdf document. For example

    this worked when it was just http but now my links are broken. Any help with this? I did alter the wp settings to make my site ssl and put in a rule in my web.config to make all http traffic go to https all that is working great just need help with my sub folders


    Hi Josh,

    the PDF link seems to be working fine now. Do you still experience issues?
