How to set up https/SSL during installation?

Recommended Posts

I'm installing the new v2.2 OsCommerce, and I can't seem to find where to set up the https settings. In the old installation tool, I remember there was step during the installation where you could input your secure server address, but in this new tool there is nowhere to do that. And I have searched the admind panel high & low and I can't seem to find out how to set it up. I have also tried searching this forum with no luck. Can someone please help me out? I'm not usually one to come to a forum for help because I can usually figure things out on my own eventually, but this has me stumped.

 

Thanks!

manually edit the >includes>configure.php to change the enable SSL from false to TRUE.

Done! Thanks so much!

 

One other question - now that I have the https set up, when I complete the checkout and click "Continue" it takes me back to my store home page, but it is still on the https site. Shouldn't that revert back to http after I'm done checking out?

On this same note, I have enabled ssl through both configuration files and it does not seem to take in the admin section. It still is showing as unsecured. If I force ssl with a rewrite in htaccesss, admin won't let me edit things like categories. I get a message saying that information is being transmitted over unsecure connection, I choose continue but it still does not take. Any ideas on what I am missing?

 

Thanks

If you want the admin to be secure, you must first access it with a HTTPS url.

 

If you want the whole admin secure all the time, there is a contribution for that.

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

That is just it, I followed those instructions and it did not take. Both configuration files were changed to reflect the ssl url.

 

This is not the first oscommmerce store that I have added ssl to, but have not done one for a while, so not a complete noob, but was quite supprised when the admin section did not work right. A contribution was mentioned for adding ssl to the admin section, do you by chance have a link to it?

 

Thanks for the assist.

Check to see if this file exists:

 

/admin/includes/local/configure.php

 

If it does, be sure nothing contained therein is in conflict with what you're trying to accomplish.
