The e-commerce.

Using OSCommerce 2.2 with SSL on 1and 1 hosting


Recommended Posts

I have a working website on 1and 1. I then decided that I need a shop to sell products on-line. I was advised to apply an SSL certificate to the website (which I obtained and installed through 1 and 1) and then install OSCommerce. Following all the instructions from 1 and 1, I have put a .htaccess file at the top of the web path. This file contains the following 3 lines.


RewriteEngine On

RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} !^443$

RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://rets247.co.uk/$1 [R]


When I try to configure My Store, with shop name shop owner etc, the modifications do not appear or get written to the MYSql database. Also when I use the shop, trying to add to the cart it tells me that the cart is empty.


When I remove the .htaccess file from the top of my website, everything works fine. Obviousely I need the SSL protection for customers entering their credit card & personal details.


Can anyone please advise what I need to do to get this working??
