HTTPS: “siteurl” and “home” in WP database should use https not http


The EasyEngine installation sets up the website to be served with https which is great. It even includes Nginx configuration to redirect http to https.

The one thing I have discovered which has caused me problems is with the Wordpress installation. In the “wp_options” table in the Wordpress database, the “siteurl” and “home” is not using http. Sometimes this is causing problems so I cannot access the site. After every new installation I must go into the database with phpMyAdmin and change the links. For example: to

If you are able to log into Wordpress it’s easier to make the changes in the Wordpress settings: Settings -> General -> Wordpress Address (URL) Settings -> General -> Site Address (URL)

If this is a bug I hope it can be fixed in the next release.
