The e-commerce.

the connection was refused when attempting... 1&1


Recommended Posts



I have set up a dedicated ssl through 1&1 hosting.


However, I am getting the classic 'the connection was refused when attempting' upon clicking certain buttons ie proceed to checkout.


I have changed (getenv('HTTPS') =='on') to (getenv('HTTPS') =='1') within includes/application_top, includes/functions/general and admin/index (as per 1&1 SSL Fix contrib) and also changed my configure files as per below:

I have tried to mirror the above based on another site i have which is working :(


Any thoughts on what I have missed?
