The e-commerce.

Customers cant buy from my store


Recommended Posts

This problem has re-occurred now with a few different customers


The first time I wrote it off but now it seems serious


They can't get anywhere near the checkout.


It keeps telling them to log in. After they login and try to go anywhere it tells them to log in again


It seems to be working fine using my XP and IE


The settings in sessions are as follows:-


Session Directory /tmp

Force Cookie Use False

Check SSL Session ID False

Check User Agent False

Check IP Address False

Prevent Spider Sessions False

Recreate Session False




Any advice would be greatly appreciated.


Many thanks

Try changing these to true:

Prevent Spider Sessions False (only so spiders don't buy anything or get anywhere near logging in etc)

Recreate Session False


Also see this thread HERE re setting up your configure.php correctly

A little knowledge is dangerous, I SHOULD KNOW.

Hi there


The config file all looks good.I will make the changes to the sessions


define('HTTP_SERVER', 'http://www.lightingpro.com.au'); // eg, http://localhost - should not be empty for productive servers

define('HTTPS_SERVER', 'https://secure8.myownserver.net/~lighting'); // eg, https://localhost - should not be empty for productive servers

define('ENABLE_SSL', true); // secure webserver for checkout procedure?

define('HTTP_COOKIE_DOMAIN', 'www.lightingpro.com.au');

define('HTTPS_COOKIE_DOMAIN', 'secure8.myownserver.net/~lighting');

define('HTTP_COOKIE_PATH', '/catalog/');

define('HTTPS_COOKIE_PATH', '/catalog/');

define('DIR_WS_HTTP_CATALOG', '/catalog/');

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