osCommerce

The e-commerce.

Using a shared SSL


Guest

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

I put together a website www.centralcalcoast.com to cell an interactive CD-ROM that I created. I am using osCommerce as my cart, but the problem is that I had someone integrate the cart for me (I am using verisign payflow link), and I am pretty illiterate wth configuring osCommerce.

 

Although the verisign site where people enter in their credit card information is secure, the osCommerce sites that they enter their name and address and other info in is not secure. This seems to be making people skeptical, and wary to purchase.

 

http://centralcalcoast.com/osCommerce/cata...out_account.php

 

I'd like to use the Shared SSL certificate that my host provides, but cannot get it to work correctly.

 

I got the response from the technical support and it is not clear to me:

 

"Change the links or I believe there is a setting in OSCommerce that you can specify the SSL or the Server which would read https://host217.ipowerweb.com/~centralc "

 

Can anyone tell me were that setting can be accessed?

 

Does anyone have any advice for me in getting this done with minimul headaches? Any tutorials out there?

 

Thanks in Advance!

Brad

seems you're having a trailing slash with your server settings in your catalog\includes\configure.php file. Look there.

 

Thanks Mark,

Forgive my ignorance here, but what is a trailing slash and how can I fix this? Just not quite sure what to look for.

post your catalog\includes\configure.php file (minus the database which contains contains sensitive info)

 

Here it is:

Thanks Mark,

I made the change and, unfortunately, still no images appear...

https://host217.ipowerweb.com/~centralc/osC...eeded69f99439d6

 

I had sent a request to technical support from my host and just got the following explanation:

In the link that you supplied, if you right-click on one of the missing images to get info about where the image should be loading, you'll see something like https://host217.ipowerweb.com/SideBar/image...debaR_r1_c1.jpg

 

As you can see, this does not refer to ~centralc, which is the root directory of the website. I don't know where exactly this is specified, but if you are able to update the templates or pages where these sidebar images are configured to use the directory https://host217.ipowerweb.com/~centralc/SideBar/images, e.g. https://host217.ipowerweb.com/~centralc/Sid...debaR_r1_c1.jpg, then the sidebar images should appear correctly.

 

I can't really make any sense out of this, does this shine any light on the problem? The images do appear when the I use http instead of https.

the images are working now, but I don't know about the sidebar. There is no such thing with osc by default that's something someone else added it is visible everywhere including the domain root. So I have no idea about its integration, its really a custom thing. Or do you have the osc as a module of another cart?

 

from the configuration file I would expect the catalog to be here:

 

http://centralcalcoast.com/~centralc/osCommerce/catalog/

https://host217.ipowerweb.com/~centralc/osCommerce/catalog/

 

however it shows errors there.

you're right it was something that someone added upon my request, it's the navigation menus that I use throughout the site... I wanted to keep the look consistent.

 

I'll try to figure it out, but if not, it is probably better to have a secure site that is missing some of the navigation menus than an unsecure one with the sidebar showing. Not that professional, but a compromise I can live with until I can afford to pay someone to fix it.

 

Thanks for the help!

I have been using the vDeck installation for about a year and it was working great with all of the images and there shared SSL. But being the crazy person I am i decided to install it myself and make some really big mods (I changed the name of every file in Admin). Crazy but works.
