wordpress and wp-admin infinite loop on ssl

Published on February 20, 2016 by in PHP

After updating a blog from a http to a https protocol,

I was facing a common problem: the wordpress wp-admin infinite loop.

After googling a lot, trying a lot of configuration, restarting nginx / apache so many time, I decided to trace the redirection into the wp-include files (wp-admin.php, index.php, admin.php)

I finally found the guilty: is_ssl which fails because of the $_SERVER[‘HTTPS’] variable which wasn’t set in my nginx proxy pass configuration.

proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Proto $scheme;

Have a look on this thread.

Follow the instructions:

Websites behind load balancers or reverse proxies that support HTTP_X_FORWARDED_PROTO can be fixed by adding the following code to the wp-config.php file, above the require_once call:

    $_SERVER['HTTPS'] = 'on';
