With Google's push to SSL -- I want to move all of our WordPress sites to SSL. The problem is the best way to do this in a multisite environment. I'm thinking, but not yet succeeding with the following.
Because several of the domains are different than the wildcard SSL, and there's more than one, I believe we need a different "setup" for each of the domains so that an SSL certificate can be installed. The issue is that we want to use a single multisite WordPress installation -- with shared plug-ins, etc... Otherwise, management and licensing are a nightmare.
I'm thinking that:
ln -s /home/wordpress/public_html /home/wordpress/domains/abc.com/public_html
Initially, the problem was that when I do this, I'd get "redirected you too many times" and the page won't load. I believe that was as a caching issue -- and now have this method working more or less with an assortment of types of certificates, including ones from sslforfree.com
For completeness of this post, if the above worked, and I was using a wildcard or multisite SSL for def.com -- I would create an alias of the subserver def.com for a.def.com to handle this -- otherwise, it would go to the top level wordpress.xyz.com site.
Thoughts of a better way to go?
