WordPress wp-admin redirects to HTTPS

Posted by Dillon | 7th September 2018

Does your WordPress wp-admin redirect to https rather than http? Below is a simple tutorial to stop this from happening.

First, check the siteurl in the wp_options table within your database. Make sure the option_value is your site address with http:// not https://.

If your siteurl is set as http:// the try the following. Open the wp-config.php file found within the root directory of your website. Look for the following constants:

define( 'FORCE_SSL_LOGIN', 1 );
define( 'FORCE_SSL_ADMIN', 1 );

Now, if you have found the above, change the 1 to a 0 (or simply comment the lines out).

If the above doesn’t work, by all means leave us a comment below and we will try and help.
