osCommerce

The e-commerce.

Can I install without SSL and add it later +

Greetings - I've inherited a store that needs to be redone in a different format [currently in Agora] and after playing around with Mambo PHPshop it seems that there is not enough support for that package to assist in getting it running smoothly and addressing bugs, so I'd like to test out an OScommerce shop - my initial questions [more to come later I'm sure LOL] are:

 

1. can I install it without SSL and add that later?

 

2. can I install and build the shop in a subdirectory and then move it to the root when finished? can't have downtime is the reason

 

and also, would it be best to install the SSL later on in the test directory and then move to root or to move to root and then install SSL - - are there issues when running on SSL?

 

can SSL be used only in portions of store?

 

Thanks and I hope these questions are not too lame. Looked around and didn't find out exactly what I needed - I greatly appreciate and hope to begin uploading and testing osCommerce 2.2 Milestone 2 for Unix today!!

 

Appreciate the assistance

Ron

1. Yes

Yes, you can run it in a folder for testing and then move it later.

 

If you purchase an SSL cert for your store while running in test mode that's fine, provided that the test store is in a folder of the main domain for which the cert is issued and not in a subdomain (which would have a different ssl cert).

 

By default osCommerce decides which parts of the store need SSl (https) and which parts do not.

Thank you thank you - very much appreciate a quick response.

The site will not be in a subdomain - just in a directory. The current store that was built by another a few years ago was done with a shared SSL and a link from the main index.html leads into the site so there is no search engine indexing as the URL of the site does not appear in connection with any page except the index.html - excellent to know that OSC will determine - that should make life easy.

 

Thanks again :thumbsup:
