Re: WordpressMU login over SSL

Bill Dennen
Thanks everyone for the feedback. I added this to wp-config.php and it  
seems to do the right thing:

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

Also, Sven said:

In Sven's previous note, he said:

I've found that the latest version of WPMU takes care of many of these  

- there is now an option to disable open signups and blogs
- there is a plugin to do LDAP authentication
- SSL encryption -- (the above code works)

Tracking new versions of WPMU is still difficult, though.
