osCommerce, XAMPP and SSL


Recommended Posts

Greetings everyone.


I am having an issue with the secure communications with my store Riders Village Store. I am noticing two issues. The first and singly most important is that whenever I get redirected to a secure page (for example clicking on the "My Account" when not logged in" results in receiving the standard IE "Page cannot be found" error.


When I access the secure site via it's internal IP Address "" I get the site without the jpg's and css styles. However when I access the site from it's external IP address I get the standard Windows "Page cannot be found" error.


So as things stands I am not sure if the issue is with my XAMPP installation, or with my osCommerce configuration.


For convenience here is my httpd.conf, httpd-ssl.conf, and httpd-vhosts.conf files.


my /includes/configure.php looks like:

I've spent most of the afternoon on this and I am still uncertain where I am making my mistake.


Any and all help is appreciated.


Thank You for your time.
