How to secure cart..


Colin

Recommended Posts

Hey guys..

 

I have my cart up and running but I'm not sure how to set it up to use SSL so it is secure. My webhost has given my an SSL certificate.

 

Do the files have to be in a separate directory or something or can I just change the config file to point from http: to https: ?

 

thanks,

colin

it depends.

if your ssl configuration points to the same home directory as your regular http one you just switch on ssl basically.

If you have a shared ssl thingie like:

 

https://supersecure.sharedhosting.com/yourname

 

you should copy all the checkout files (or just ALL the files) to that directory.

 

The SSL settings need to be adapted in application_top.php on both admin / catalog side. (or configure.php, check that too :) )

This may be the answer to my problem as well, Mattice....my question is what lines need to be changed on the application_top script to get the store to work when the SSL is enabled?

 

Everything works great until I turn on SSL in the catalog/configuration file and then I get the message:

 

Fatal error: Failed opening required 'includes/configure.php' (include_path='') in /home/www/~myusername/catalog/includes/application_top.php on line 34

 

Any ideas?

 

Thanks,

Kip

switch it on? huh? I have installed ssl on my server. I ran the setup script again and changed the https info and enabled it. It Uses ssl whenever its supposed to but it says cart not secure in admin area and the images are all broken whenever it goes SSL. Anyone know why its doing that?
