Please help with SSL problem (please see enclosed screenshot)


Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm really new at this and have had my store up and running for about a month now and I'm still learning about things like SSL. I have enabled Shared SSL that comes with my webhosting and have tried their support team's instructions to add the HTTPS stuff to my /catalog/includes/local/configure.php, but it still didn't work.


My store is supposed to look like this - and does when I just type HTTP:





But when I try to access it with SSL / HTTPS it becomes this:





Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I'm guessing you've either fixed the problem, or you need to clear your browser's cache, as the site displays fine to me (in both SSL and non-SSL)


Thanks, Dave. I figured it out really late last night and totally forgot to get back here and post that I may have fixed it (ever since I started doing this, I've been burning the midnight oil every night :sweating: and my brain just gets so fuzzy >_<.) Thanks so much for checking it out for me though, because I still wasn't 100% sure that I'd gotten it right.


I think it was because my webhosting service told me to just add the https coding to catalog/includes/local/configure.php


But I found another file in admin/includes/configure.php with the following and changed it too, though I'm not entirely sure if I should have:


define('HTTP_SERVER', 'http://www.frangadesigns.com'); // eg, http://localhost or - https://localhost should not be NULL for productive servers

define('HTTP_CATALOG_SERVER', 'http://and I put my shared SSL domain name here);

define('HTTPS_CATALOG_SERVER', 'https://and I put my shared SSL domain name here too');

define('ENABLE_SSL_CATALOG', 'true'); // secure webserver for catalog module


I pretty much repeated what my webhosting service told me to do for the other file in catalog/includes/local/configure.php. (By the way, one thing that threw me off for a while was because the support tech made a typo when he replied the first time; he said to put http://https://..... under HTTP_CATALOG_SERVER (I wrote back and asked and they told me to just use http://) :P


But was I not supposed change it in the admin/includes/configure.php or was I? :blush:


Have a great day,
