Hi Everyone,

Not sure if I should be posting this here or not.
I'm also looking for help in the linode forums.

We are currently running 6 servers, but I think only 4 of them are set up as a cluster.
The Cluster is running as our hosting environment for our clients.
We are only hosting WordPress Sites. It's a Gentoo Base System release 2.1.

When ever I try to get SSL to work I get endless redirects or none of the css or JavaScript will load securely. 
I have the sites url set to https in the settings file and checked the database, all https:
When you look at the page source most of the links are http:// still.

Now things get weird. I changed wp_home and wp_siteurl to https://test.com and reloaded the login page.
This only Worked b/c i was on the login page. If you tryed to go to a different link, It would take you to test.com.
Then I looked at the page source. Check out this screenshot: 
https://www.dropbox.com/s/b367bnc7nttiz ... .28.53.png
Some links are http others are https and all set from the same value in the config file.... 

This is what is there now.
define('WP_HOME', 'https://skopospublishing.com');
define('WP_SITEURL', 'https://skopospublishing.com'); 

I have spent almost 20 hours chasing rabbits. I get the same problems with the default theme and no plugins. 
The Contractor that has been working on the server swears its WordPress. 
I think it has something to do with the server configuration and how he is serving the SSL's

Same problem on https://studentlaunchpad.com/ 

He also told he that "it's behind a proxy/SSL accelerator, home and siteurl contents are set up, and what we saw testing url generation"

I'm not sure what he means. I do know that no matter what I change the site urls in the config or database, or what I change in the .htaccess files
Something else is serving http:// in from of all the links...

I'm lost and looking for more insight. I'm happy to provide more information please let me know what you need.
If this is the wrong place for this type of question, please advise where to ask.
