(1) Tell your host you're going to install SSL through another company. They shouldn't charge you, but they might ... 10 bucks or whatever. They'll e-mail you a CSR (certificate signing request).

 

(2) Find an SSL Company. A popular one seems to be the RapidSSL by Geotrust, 'cause it's cheap, but there are plenty. Google search, if you'd like. Make sure it has at least 128-bit data encryption, and is compatible with all browsers. Make sure it has a trusted root. Make sure it puts a padlock in your browser. These are all questions you'll ask the SSL company.

 

(3) Purchase the SSL. E-mail the SSL company your CSR that your host gave to you. Be sure that both your host and the SSL company are on the same page -- assign your SSL to either http://www.yoursite.com, or http://yoursite.com -- but make sure they both do the same thing.

 

(4) You'll receive an SSL Certificate Key from the SSL company once purchased. E-mail this key back to your host. They'll install it for you.

 

(5) All you need to do now, is to alter your configure.php files. They're located in (path to catalog)/includes/configure.php, and (path to catalog)/admin/includes/configure.php.

 

In includes/configure.php, set the SSL to "true"; it should look something like this near the top, if you assigned the SSL to http://www.yoursite.com:

define('HTTP_SERVER', 'http://www.yoursite.com');

define('HTTPS_SERVER', 'https://www.yoursite.com');

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

define('HTTP_COOKIE_DOMAIN', '.yoursite.com');

define('HTTPS_COOKIE_DOMAIN', '.yoursite.com');

 

In admin/includes/configure.php, set the SSL to "true" and add an "s" after all the http's. So it'll look something like this, if assigned to www.yoursite.com:

define('HTTP_SERVER', 'https://www.yoursite.com/');

define('HTTP_CATALOG_SERVER', 'https://www.yoursite.com/');

define('HTTPS_CATALOG_SERVER', 'https://www.yoursite.com/');

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

 

Save and upload your configure.php files to their appropriate directories, and your SSL should be running smoothly and efficiently.

 

Good luck.
