#46407 closed enhancement (duplicate)

Multisite subdomains defaulting to http

On a subdomain multisite network, new sites all default to http rather than https regardless of any server settings or the main site's URL.

With the proliferation of free wildcard certificates from Let's Encrypt and Cloudflare, there's no reason this shouldn't be at the very least a user configurable setting in wp-config.php. But I would expect and prefer subsites to use https by default if the main site URL uses https.

Hi @Jonah_Aragon and welcome to WordPress Trac!

This has already been discussed in #27499. I don’t think anything has really changed from that decision.

I do think there is room for a filter to more easily allow https default, but we can continue that discussion on the other ticket.
