Adding SSL to Admin area

Recommended Posts

HEllo all, i would like to know how to add SSL protection to my entire admin area. At least my customer and order info. I have SSL installed and it work as designed during a customers checkout, but when i go and view there purchase in the admin area, those pages are unprotected.

 

I thought of just making the entire site covered under the SSL, but i have been lead to believe that it will slow down the site. IF that is the case, i would much rather just have the customer, and order info protected in the admin area.

 

Thanks for any help that you can send my way.

 

Sincerly,

Nathan Lantto

The admin ssl enable contribution (I think that is the name) will allow you to protect certain areas of admin. Otherwise, you need to protect the whole section by altering the configure file for admin.

Covering your whole site with a SSL "blanket" will achieve nothing but slowing your site down.

 

Having your Admin password protected is sufficient as no information is transmitted to or from your Admin, which, by the way, is what SSL is all about; the secure, encrypted TRANSFER of data from customer to store and store to owner.

 

Hope this helps

Thanks for the replys. I sure do appreciate the help.

 

So if i am looking at a customers invoice and it has credit card info on it, even though it isnt in a SSL page it is sufficient to have the admin area password protected? I have the admin protected as a subweb with its own password. If that is enough, that is great, I just want to take every precaution that my customers information is as safe as possible.

 

Thanks again for the help. I still may add that admin contribution.
