Upgrading to SSL


roback

Recommended Posts

I have recently upgraded from regular http to SSL with https. however now I cannot find where to change the setting in OSC to register https, and not revert to http.

 

How can I do this?

 

 

(PS Sorry if this is in the forum elsewhere. It would not let me search)

 

thanks

Do I set the HTTP_SERVER to https:// as well if I want the entire site function on HTTPS?

 

Please help.

 

The site is spog.bz you can check how it functions with http and https...

 

Thanks

I recently 'bought' an SSL cert thru 123-reg, and cannot figure out what to do with it now. I did follow a few instuctions, but then it said i had to reboot the server....erm...i don't think so!

 

i have no idea what to do.!

Running a botched up version of  osCommerce Online Merchant v2.3.4 bootstrap with the dresscode theme installed, numerous add-ons, terrible coding, terrible website, but will have to make do until I have made up for my losses and can risk shutting down for a couple of weeks while I start all over again. - I did not install my program but am endeavouring to fix it with your help.

rcall, why wouldn't I want to do that? Does OSC switch to https if set up when it gets to the payment processing/checkout section.?

 

osc will automatically switch to https when you checkout or go to your account. otherwise it is not needed.

Adam, ah yes I see now... this might be a dumb question, but there is not security threat that it toggles back and forth between http and https during shopping? It will switch to https when in my account or when checking out automatically?

 

This toggling does not effect the sessions, cart data or anything else does it?

 

Thanks

there should not be a security threat because there is no sensitive information sent on the non https pages. it shouldn't lose the sessions or cart data as long as the configure.php file is correct. just test it on your site, if you try to checkout and it still has your cart data then your site is fine.
