SSL advice

Recommended Posts

We have just installed a cert on our server which we intend to share between several client stores including ours.

 

what i'm trying to work out is how to set up the cert with our first client domain.

 

i want to use http://www.client-domain.com/catalog/ for the client catalog

 

and https://secure.brightstorm.co.uk/client-domain/admin/ for the admin section so access is locked down by ssl.

 

https://secure.brightstorm.co.uk is where our cert is installed to.

 

the server runs virtual hosting on apache so my domain and the clients domain are folders in a main folder on rh linux.

 

ie

/vhtdocs/my-client

/vhtdocs/secure

 

can oscommerce be configured to use the ssl for checkout and admin only?

 

or is it a case of putting in a redirect?

 

thanks.

sorry for asking but I'm trying to find a cheaper certificate / ssl hosting solution in the UK - have you found any good deals?

cheaper than what?

 

my cert cost me around ?250 for a year including install and config from dsvr.co.uk.

 

if you cant afford this - can you afford to be running a webstore.

 

also please do not hijack my subject as cheap certs is different to my problem.

well if I'm the kind of guy that finds a cert for ?50 and you're the kind of guy that finds one for ?250 I reckon my web store will last longer than yours.

 

Thanks for the friendly answer and I'll try not to "Hijack" your subject again, even if this means putting your subject at the top of the list, though in general I thought we could share ideas since I would be looking to install a cert too in a similar way afterwards.

hi, sorry to get off on the wrong footing.

 

My cert did not cost ?250 just for the cert : it is the webserver cert priced at $199 - which is as secure as the 128 supercert but works at lower security on older browsers - http://www.thawte.com/buy.html

 

AFAIK this is the cheapest you can get a thawte cert for unless you are buyng a part of a cert from an isp on a shared secure server which is what my original post was to do with setting up.

 

The rest of the fee is a test & install charge by my isp. there is also a setup charge to thawte. the second year the cert is just $199 dollars.

 

We are about to launch our first commercial store for UK subsidary of www.edsyn.com. It is cheaper for us to have the cert admined and installed by our isp than to do it ourselves as we can be doing chargeable work whilst they did the install.

 

If i can figure out how to share my cert i may be in a position to help with osc store hosting. Until then, i'm working out how to sort my cert.
