SSL and HTTPS:// and HTTP:// URL issues on WordPress Ubuntu 14.04
We’ve been trying to figure out why after installing wordpress within the var/www/html directory on LAMP running ubuntu 14.04 (which is said to be the standard location for the uploaded files), that the SSL enabled site is not registering as one address, but as multiple addresses,(such that after WordPress installation completed from the browser on the https:// address, we’d check the http:// location and it would appear as an “Index of/ page just showing a folder directory icon titled "html”, while the other https address correctly shows the page for a newly installed wp site. )
When WordPress was uninstalled, and then reinstalled from within the browser at the http:// location, the install program appeared within a subdirectory http://domain.com/html/wp-admin/install.php. After completion of the install, the site is shows up only from within the html/ subdirectory location, so if www.domain.com/wp-admin is typed, a “Not found” page shows. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
