My WordPress Loginis force directing me to a directory that does not work?

Hello - When I go to log into my website(herobureau) at the top using the login button on the top right, I am force redirected (through some sort of http redirect logic)

Problem is I do not want any redirect.

How do I go about restoring this to normal.

The problem started when I installed WordPress HTTPS on my multisite installation. I have since de-installed it but I'm still having the same issue.

I have BuddyPress installed. When I deactivate BuddyPress the problem goes away but I need BuddyPress.

Configuration wise I have Word Press installed in a subdirectory on my site called License and an Index.php file in my root directory (set up using the recommended steps on the Word press site)

I have a two site multi-site .

    Hey Steven,

    Hope you are well today and welcome to the WPMU DEV Community!

    It is likely that the https plugin placed code in your .htaccess and it wasn't removed when the plugin was deactivated. Take a look there and if there is still code left over then remove it :slight_smile:

    If you aren't comfortable going through your .htaccess then you can send the credentials over to me privately through our contact form:

    Then I can go in and take a look for you.

    Send in:

    Subject: "Attn: Tyler Postle"
    -WordPress admin username
    -WordPress admin password
    -login url
    -FTP credentials (host/username/password)
    -link back to this thread for reference

    Select "I have a different question" for your topic - this and the subject line ensure that it gets assigned to me :slight_smile:

    Look forward to hearing back Steven!

    Hey Steven,

    Ah, after reading your latest post here I believe I know how you can fix the issue here :slight_smile:

    You can use a search and replace plugin in your database. Use this plugin here:

    Ask it to search the db for your old url strings and replace it with the new ones. Essentially stripping out the extra directory.

    Be sure to make a backup of your database first just in-case.

    Apologies for the late reply by the way, I just went offline when you sent in the info via contact form.

    Try that out Steven and let me know how it goes :slight_smile: I'll be online for awhile.

    Talk to you soon!
