I've got my store almost finished and I did a test run with the credit card and the secure pages are working fine. When I go to my administration and click on orders (pending) to get the info about the order, it doesn't automatically change it to a secure page. Where as when I login or go to the checkout, it automatically switches to a secure page. Is it necessary for that orders page to be secure when i am viewing the customers info plus credit card number? If so, how do I set it up so that when I click pending and then edit to view the order details, it is automatically secure?

 

Thanks

If you want your admin to use secure pages you need to change the first http: define in your

admin/includes/configure.php file to your secure path.

The Knowledge Base is a wonderful thing.

There's a nice contribution for this which I think is preferable to running the entire admin section under ssl. It's an easy install.

Dominic - securing the admin with ssl serves no purpose. The database is already on a secured connection so there is no data to be stolen. The only time you would need to enable ssl in admin is if you plan on using the backup tool to download your database to your computer, which is usually not the case. Plus, enabling it will cause admin to slow down even more than it already is.
