WordPress SSL Login & Admin

This is “the right way” to enable WordPress Administration & Login over SSL (assuming SSL is Configured and Running in the Hosting machine).

Don’t try to play with Redirect in Apache configuration, WordPress 2.6 and later has greatly improved support for administration over SSL out of the box.
