    Locking down wp-admin and wp-login using the SSL code like
    define (‘FORCE_SSL_LOGIN’, true)

    Can this be done in the site where SSL is installed or can it be used in all the sites?

  9. Daniel Kanchev says:

    Hey nirmala! The following code:

    define (‘FORCE_SSL_LOGIN’, true);

    will redirect all login attempts from:

    http://yourdomainname.com/wp-login.php

    to:

    https://yourdomainname.com/wp-login.php

    My advice is to use the code only if you have a valid SSL certificate for your domain name. If you don’t have private SSL certificates for your domain names then your browser will display a warning message and inform you that the SSL is not trusted. If you want to protect just the WP admin area use the following code:

    define('FORCE_SSL_ADMIN', true);

    You can find the official documentation at:
