Securing the WordPress Admin Dashboard

by Alpha01

So the primary reason why I wanted to add SSL support to is because I want all my /wp-admin traffic to be served securely.

Configuring WordPress to force the login page and all wp-admin traffic to be served over SSL is simply just a matter of defining the FORCE_SSL_LOGIN and FORCE_SSL_ADMIN constants in wp-config.php.

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