Question

Can't access WordPress Admin Login With HTTPS Enabled

Greetings!

I deployed the WordPress One Click Image. I installed my SSL Certificate and enabled SSL Within Apache2. I also have a rewrite rule to change HTTP to HTTPS and I set my site URL to https within the admin control panel.

However, after doing all of that I am unable to access any of my WordPress Content and I can get to the homepage if I turn off the HTTPS redirect but I’m still unable to get to the admin control panel if I do that.

What can I do regain access to my HTTPS control panel?

https runs on port 443 while http is on port 80 by default. With port 443 closed you will definitely not be able to reach your site via https.
