Wordpress & Shibboleth Headers

Hi All,

Just deployed a new Wordpress v4.5.2 install with a v2.5.6 SP.  I am using the Shibboleth v1.7 plugin in multisite WP config.  I verified my SP is working. Right now I am getting an infinite loop when I try to login because the Shibboleth plugin doesn’t see the Shibboleth headers.  Based on the posts I’ve read and testing to confirm it seems that the shibboleth_session_active() in the plugin is looking for Shib-Session-ID', 'Shib_Session_ID’, or ‘HTTP_SHIB_IDENTITY_PROVIDER’ header variables and not finding it.  I dumped all of the $_SERVER variables and they’re populated, just not the Shibboleth ones.

I’ve seen a few posts from people with the same issue but everyone seems to say it was a configuration issue, no explanation.

Does anyone have an idea why a super global wouldn’t be visible in WP,
