SSL Cert


autoxtreme

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

 

I have been issued with my SSL cert from my hosting company today. It is a shared cert. I have the URL for it. My payment process is dealt with by paypal but I need to secure the account creation/log in pages, and any other pages I may have overlooked if someone can suggest any! lol

 

 

How do I go about adding the code in to my store so I can secure the relevant pages.

 

 

Thank you :)

If I suggest you edit any file(s) make a backup first - I'm not perfect and neither are you.

Right......

 

Eventually managed to get the SSL working on the account pages. I now have the problem of secure and nonsecure items being displayed. The problem is 3 images I have, one in the footer and 2 in the right column.

 

I have done some searching and from what I can find it seems these images need to be tagged as https:// etc etc etc

 

The SSL cert I am using is a shared one from my host so I dont have access to a secure folder to link these pictures to so they are just in the usual /catalog/images folder.

 

I dont want to lose the images, but what other way is there of solving this problem? I dont want to scare customers off with warning messages! lol

If the links/images can't be made "secure" (HTTPS) you can code it so they don't display when in SSL mode.

 

Example topic:

 

Click Me

 

The code goes something like this:

 

<?php
if ( $request_type != 'SSL' ) {
?>

******** DELETE THIS LINE AND PUT YOUR NON-SECURE CODE HERE ********

<?php
}
?>

I'd need a link to your site to get any more specific.

Thats great! Images show up apart from on the secure pages! No warning box anymore!! lol

 

This will probably sound like a really stupid question, but when I changed the configure.php file to link to the SSL, how does the store know what pages to secure and what pages can just be left normal. I didnt specify any pages, it just somehow know to secure the account pages.

 

 

How?!! lol

The osC coders just have it embedded in the code to use SSL on the pages where "sensitive" information is exchanged, if SSL is available.

;)

Well, I was looking an your response here:

 

The SSL cert I am using is a shared one from my host so I dont have access to a secure folder to link these pictures to so they are just in the usual /catalog/images folder.

I would think that anything in your own /catalog/images folder should be able to be linked to even in HTTPS mode without any warnings.

 

If you have the links "hard coded" as "HTTP", that might be the problem.

 

If you want you can PM me the code you're using on the "problem images", and I may be able to offer something that would work even in SSL mode.

 

If you examine the HTML source for your site, it will have a line similar to this:

 

<base href="https://yoursite.com/">

So, if you code the image something like this:

 

<img src="catalog/images/picture.jpg">

Your browser takes the "base href" and adds the code for the image, and comes up with something like this:

 

<img src="https://yoursite.com/catalog/images/picture.jpg">

for the image links so they stay secure.

 

That help any?

:unsure:
