Secure-Admin now supports Shared SSL!

Posted in: Uncategorized

shared_ssl.gifThe original Secure-Admin plugin supported only Private SSL. This meant if you wanted to secure your Wordpress login and administration pages you needed to purchase and setup a Private SSL certificate from a certificate authority and a dedicated IP address from your host.

Since many of us are given free Shared SSL with our shared hosting plans and have no further need for a dedicated IP, I decided to modify the Secure-Admin code to cater for those that wanted to add SSL security without the need for extra requirements. Thanks to Chris for saving me a ton of time with the initial footwork.

Bear in mind that this can also make use of Private SSL certificates you have installed on other domains to secure your admin pages.
