The e-commerce.

adding SSL after installation


Recommended Posts

Also as an aside questions. When installing the cart I didn't check SSL but I will be adding it after the fact. Is there a way to enable it now that the cart has already been installed and setup etc. (I sure hope so)


The post above was under a shipping title, and I have the same question...

If we have already installed and configured, what do we need to do to add SSL afterwards?

Thanks, I followed instructions and most seems to be working OK...but I am getting an error code when you try to follow the guest links on the index page:


"The requested URL /login.php was not found on this server.

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request. "


The path is looking for shelldavekauai.com/login.php...

How and where should I change it to work properly?

I worked this out myself, and just wanted to add the following instructions for anyone who may search for this info...


If you have a full certificate the changes are easy. In includes/configure.php you set enable_ssl to 'true' and where it says https_server_address you input https://www.yourdomain.com and for https_cookie_domain you input www.yourdomain.com - provided your certificate was issued to www.yourdomain.com, if issued to yourdomain.com then leave out the www. ifrom above.


In admin/includes/configure.php set enable_ssl to 'true' and to secure all of your 'admin' behind ssl make the http_server_address and the https_server Address and the http_catalog address https://www.yourdomain.com


Additionally, be sure to change catalog/includes/configure.php

  define('DIR_WS_HTTPS_CATALOG', '/oscom/catalog/');

to the correct path of your catalog... for me it was located in the oscom folder.
