SSL once again


Recommended Posts




I hope not to jump in the same trap as the_bear...


But I'm as well a newbie in all SSL-matters.


So are my first (and hopefully my last) three or five questions on the subject:


1. - Do I have to launch two version of the shop - one on the http-server and another on the https-server?

1.a - And do I - accordingly - have to update them all the same?

2. - Or is it ok only to launch parts of the shop on the https-server, namely the files regarding personal data and money/bank-business?

3. - And what about the mysql-database: how will the shop-version on the https-server get a connection to the database when it's not on the same server?

3.a - Do I need two databases as well?

This is configure.php


this is how mine is configured

// Define the webserver and path parameters

// * DIR_FS_* = Filesystem directories (local/physical)

// * DIR_WS_* = Webserver directories (virtual/URL)

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

define('HTTPS_SERVER', 'https://secure.modwest.com/stnickco.com'); // eg, https://localhost - should not be NULL for productive servers

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

Ok, thanks Will,


but what do you have on the server 'https://secure.modwest.com/stnickco.com'? Another uploaded version of your shop? Or nothing? Or just a redirect back to your shop?


Sorry - I don't understand that SSL-stuff...

This is Will's alias shared secure link for the server that stnickco.com is on.

It works just as good as a if the web site had it's own certificate.

example of web sites own cert. would be "https://stnicko.com"


There is no need to upload another shop anywhere as long as your host has an shared SSL for the server or if you had your own.


Many people preffer to have their own cert. but as long as your shared server has an alias cert. you can use at no extra cost than use it.


Hope this helps your question a little,

Just to pick up oh this thread, I am also having a problem with the shared SSL to work. I have my configure.php set up correctly (as above, but with my domain and shared ssl details) but I get the page cannot be found error. Is there any further changes that need to be made? (Maybe in application top.php?)


Rave Knights, I have seen you site and you have a similar set up to what I want to acheive (with a shared ssl). Can you send me any further info?
