Problem with backend functions when SSL enabled

Problem with backend functions when SSL enabled

I have a problem with some Magento (version 1) backend features not working if SSL is enabled.


SSL certificate has been installed on the domain and I have the following lines in .htaccess to make sure pages use HTTPS:


RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} 80
RewriteRule ^(.*)$$1 [R,L]


Front end works fine when this is enabled but in the admin backend, certain things stop working. Product images don't show and can't be uploaded. Can’t search for orders or see anything other than the last 20, if I search it just goes to blank with ‘please wait’.
Can’t update the catalog with new products or change images.


So I need to enable SSL without the back end functionality being compromised and investigating why this seems to affect certain Magento features. Obviously I don't want to enable it until I have a solution that works.


The site needs to be able to use HTTPS in the back end so surely there must be a solution for this. Anyone know of anything?

Hi @followedthrough,


Can you share how you configured the URLs options and the secure options too?
