OK, I need some help here. I am trying to make sure everything we do on UMW Blogs is covered under SSL, and while we have the SSL certificate for UMW Blogs, we don’t have the dynamic subdomain certificate. So, in short, is there some http, .htaccess voodoo we can do that would force everyone to sign-in through the main domain, which would then kick them back to the administrative backend of their own blog once they’re in? I imagine this might even work for mapped domains, and it seems similar to what is doing. Any hints or tips would be greatly appreciated, because I have to get this solved right quick :)

    We’re looking for something similar.

    Our SSL certificate is issued for our subdomain:, instead of

    How do we get WPMU to recognize the secure subdomain?

    Any idea?
