http and https questions? file placement?

Hi,

 

I have a http and https directory on the server.

I have all the content of the directory /catalog in the http and in the https directory. Is this ok?

 

Can I have only the admin in http directory? or I need it in both?

and will the changes made in the admin work on the https files?

 

When I go to the store, and want to order, the login page is https, so this is fine, but if I go back to "shopping" from the cart, then I get a https store? can this be avoided?

I think only login, account editing, and checkout should be ssl. How can I do this?

 

I know this is a prety basic question, but I couldn't find the answer... and really need the info.

thanks

hello malem, in order to avoid maintaining 2 sets of files, one in https and the other in http, can you change your https symlimk or update it to point to the same directory as http ... that way you do not need to update 2 sets of files everytime you make a change ... also look at includes/configure.php and admin/includes/configure.php there are some ssl configs in there.

 

hope it help ... :)

Yes, having a symlink from httpsdocs to httpdocs is better than maintaining two sets of files.

 

As this two-folder system is not necessary and just done for the convenience of your hosting company get them to set up the symlink for you. If they won't do that, think about moving to somewhere that does not use this awful, unnecessary, two-folder system.
