Wordpress Nginx first use - no graphical/visual interface

Wordpress Nginx first use - no graphical/visual interface
December 17, 2020 04:09AM

I’m trying to run Wordpress on my own server in a docker environment with Nginx as webserver. I’m already able to reach Wordpress over my domain https://www.example.com and I did the install.php.

But something is still wrong, because if I try to open the site, I can’t receive the graphical interface of Wordpress. I just get Text-Information to login, looking like an very old website (see Attachment, screenshot).

I’ve found out, that the website-adress and the Wordpress-adress is shown as http://www.example.com in the Wordpress settings. If I try to change it to https, I will no longer be able to login and I receive “403 Error” in my browser.

So does anybody know the problem or the reason, where it comes from.

I’m a very newbie in stuff like this an in the last weeks I already learned a lot about web-server and Wordpress. I tried to fix the problem on my own, but I could find no solution.

So I would be very grateful about every kind of help an advices. Thanks in advance.
Best regards - Daniel

I searched several day to find a solution for the above described problem. I'm truly not a professional in these stuff, but I guess the reason for the error was grounded in a redirect-problem (301, http/https, ssl certificate), caused by the Cloudflare DNS-Services, wich I'm using.

I solved the problem by installing the [Flexible SSL for CloudFlare](https://de.wordpress.org/plugins/cloudflare-flexible-ssl/) plugin. With this plugin so called redirect-loop problems will be solved. For me Wordpress is now working. If someone knows an other solution, I would be interested to hear about it.
