Can't get https working on a Wordpress one-click install
I’ve got a Wordpress site set up with one-click.
I followed the various tutorials here and created a self-signed certificate and set it up with an Apache default-ssl.conf file. Apache is reloading, and the certificate is valid, according to ssllabs.com (4 As).
So the certificate is valid and Apache works fine.
If I go to my Wordpress site with https, I get redirected to http, and the browser indicates the site is not private/secure.
If I go into my Wordpress settings (or config.php) and change the site and home url to https:// instead of http, if I go to the site (https://sensitiveskinmagazine.com), the page no longer loads - it says it was redirected too many times. BUT I see the green lock in the upper left corner - it is a secure site.
Man I feel like I’m really close - any idea what’s going on here?
