Hi,

Ive been seraching these forums, but cant find simple step by step instructions of how to configure my shop to be secure. My hosting company has installed an ssl certificate for me and now I just want to know how to configure osCommerce to use it in the right places. Just want the admin area, registration, account details, checkout etc to be secure. Dont want the front page to be secure or when a user is browsing categories,

does anyone know where i can find instructions to do this,

Thanks,

Richard

If I'm not mistaken, when you first create an oscommerce site, it asks you if you want to make it secure. At least mine does, but it may just be through my server.

Edit the appropriate entries in /includes/configure.php and admin/includes/configure.php

 

Also, make sure the admin directory is secured with .htaccess protection.

Hi all i too need help on this. I have a shop and i have a secure certificate installed however in my amdin it says at the bottom "You are not protected by a secure SSL connection."

 

How can I make it so all my pages are on a https:// URL please.

You don't have to worry about which area to protect, as osCommerce already knows which areas fall under https. As you now have a full ssl cert you input https://www.yourdomain.com where appropriate in the two figure.php files. Where it says https cookie domain, input just www.yourdomain.com (no https).

 

The customer Login area will be under https, also all of the customer account (creation, details etc) information will be under https, and parts of the shopping cart process.

 

To secure all of the 'admin' folder behind the ssl cert you will have to name both the http and https connection (in admin/includes/configure.php) as being https://yourdomain.com. Don't forget that this folder still needs to be Password Protected.
