Live writer SSL Connection fails


  • Hello,

    I'm connecting to my Wordpress Blog on my own vServer. The server runs multiple client domains (, and one admin-interface domain ( which has SSL support. The client domains are not supposed to use SSL. They could try to open for example https :// but it will give you a certificate error because the cert ist made for

    Here is the problem:

    When I try to connect live writer to my URL, it automatically tries a HTTPS connection instead of the given HTTP. SInce the certificate is not valid for this domin, I'm getting an error that the SSL connection failed. I already used a previous version of live writer successfully with this blog. So this must be a new "feature".

    Is there any way to force HTTP?


    Best regards,
