Wordpress Secure Login Redirect

July 25, 2011 10:14AM
Hi. I wanted to enable ssl on nginx for using to login to wordpress and the admin panel.

I have a ssl certifcate that uses secure.DOMAIN.com. My Wordpress configuration is with Network enabled. http://codex.wordpress.org/Create_A_Network#Apache_Virtual_Hosts_and_Mod_Rewrite.

The website works like this:

www.DOMAIN.com (Main blog, points to others blogs)
subdomain1.DOMAIN.com (blog 1)
sub2.DOMAIN.com (blog 2)

What I want to force is a secure SSL connection for login in and administration for each subdomain. http://codex.wordpress.org/Administration_Over_SSL

How do I change the configuration in nginx to work like that?

Here is my current nginx.conf and website.conf files.

nginx.conf file:

user nginx;
worker_processes 1;

error_log /var/log/nginx/error.log;
#error_log /var/log/nginx/error.log notice;
#error_log /var/log/nginx/error.log info;

http {
include /etc/nginx/mime.types;

log_format main '$remote_addr - $remote_user [$time_local] "$request" '

website.conf file:
