Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

i do really know nothing about SSL - Installation....

 

i have gotten my SSL Certificate now but i have no clue how to install it. I want that the ssl-connection is there, at that point where my customers have to put in their credit card information...

 

May somebody explain me step by step how i can install it?

 

 

thanks very much

 

sandra

What control panel are you using?

 

Do you have a shared hosting or a dedicated server?

 

If dedicated server, is it a managed package or an unmanaged package?

aahm i'm not sure "what" control panel i use, do you mean the software??? This would bi "Apache".

 

It's a dedicated SSL not a shared.

 

I'm also not sure if it is managed or unmanaged... the only thing i gotten from my hoster is a CSR... a text with lots of letters and numbers...

 

Sorry that i couldn't answer the questions, my knowledge about SSL is just not very big...

I see that you host has generated, and will install the certificate for you.

 

You'll need to give that CSR to your SSL provider (Verisign, Geotrust etc.) at time of payment.

 

You will then get a certificate and maybe a ca bundle, which you'll need to give to your host.

Do you have shell access to the *nix server?

My Hoster told me that they already installed the SSL (i can go to https instead of http...) i just need to configure my oscommerce so that the https appears at that point where my customers have to put their credit card information in.

 

Can somebody explain step by step how i can do that?

 

thank you

change your admin/includes/configure.php

and catalog/includes/configure.php

 

 

define('HTTP_SERVER', 'http://www.yourdomain.com');

define('HTTPS_SERVER', 'https://www.yourdomain.com/');

define('ENABLE_SSL', true);

define('HTTP_SERVER', 'http://www.yourdomain.com');

define('HTTPS_SERVER', 'https://www.yourdomain.com/');

define('ENABLE_SSL', true);

 

Good advise. :)

 

Also change: (if applicable)

  define('HTTPS_COOKIE_DOMAIN', '');

to

  define('HTTPS_COOKIE_DOMAIN', 'www.yourdomain.com');

 

If this is empty or doesn't match your HTTPS_SERVER and HTTPS_COOKIE_DOMAIN (Dedicated SSL only, can and should be different for Shared SSL), you'll lose your Session IDs (empty basket from http to https)

thanks for the reply. I did that but it didn't change anything...

I would talk to your host again because

 

https://www.kitchenniche.ca/

 

doesn't load.

 

Loads for me. It appears that your configuration files haven't been modified. Are you certain that you changed the correct files, and uploaded them to the correct locations? If you are, please paste the top half of your catalog/includes/configure.php here.
