Shopping Cart/Session Issues


Recommended Posts

With a store I am working on, when you log in or click checkout the store drops everything in the shopping cart. Any ideas on how to remedy this?


Thanks in advance.

I am having what I think is the same problem!?!? I tried to cookie fix and it did not work. My setup is such that I have mirrored the catalog directory on the secure site. I can log in (via secure site) and add and view to my cart (via unsecure site). When I click Checkout I am asked to sign in (via secure site). The next screen (What's In My Cart?) says my cart is empty!?!?


I actually was able to checkout one time?!?!?!?


Thanks for your help!

Setting the https_cookie_domain is problematic when using a shared ssl cert - especially if it's on another server entirely.


If you have a full ssl cert then the https and http cookie domains are the same, either www.yourdomain.com or yourdomain.com - depending on how the ssl cert was issued.


If your shared ssl is in the form of:

http://servervname.hostcompany.com/yoursitename, then the https_cookie_domain would be: servername.hostcompany.com/yoursitename and your https cookie path would be '/' or you could use servername.hostcompany.com for your https cookie domain and the https cookie path would then be '/yoursitename/'
