The e-commerce.

os commerce and os SSL


Recommended Posts

Before you start to worry about ssl and osC first just learn how to access your site via an https:// link, ie https://www.salon428.com (or whatever your domain really is).


Once you've got that understood then you'll have a good start in figuring out how to set your config files.


Here's a good example: https://www.oscommerce.com/forums/


Notice that it does not bring you to this forum since there is no secure link between this forum and the outside world.

Local: Mac OS X 10.5.8 - Apache 2.2/php 5.3.0/MySQL 5.4.10 • Web Servers: Linux

Tools: BBEdit, Coda, Versions (Subversion), Sequel Pro (db management)

The first thing you need to do is let your ISP know that you want to use a SSL certificate. A dedicated SSL certificate requires that your domain use a dedicated IP address. This will cost a few dollars, depending on which ISP you use. I recommend that you purchase the certificate from your ISP and have them install it. They generally have the best pricing and install certificates all the time.


Once they tell you that it is installed you need to go to the catalog/includes/modules/configure.php file and find the following code:


define('HTTPS_SERVER', 'https://yourdomainname');

define('ENABLE_SSL', false); // secure webserver for checkout procedure?


Change "false" to "true"



This should do it.
