Problems with SSL (help!!)


Recommended Posts



I have a site under yahoo web hosting. There is automatic SSL support with Yahoo. All we need to do is create a directory called 'ssl' and all pages under that directory have SSL enabled using Yahoo's certificate. This worked fine for a php email order form that I had before I installed osCommerce.

After installing osCommerce, I copied the catalog from the root directory to the ssl directory. Changed the settings in configure.php and the pages seem to come up fine but I have the following problems:

1. There is no SSL (lock) icon in the status box of the browser window in the login page even though I can see it is being served by the yahoo ssl server (the url changes from www.myshop.com).

2. I am unable to log in. I enter the correct user name and pwd but it never logs me in. Always shows a pwd or userid error.


As far as I can see, the database is accessible because the login page does show the 'specials' and 'new items' info boxes.


Any help here is appreciated. I haven't gone into the code yet. Thought I would post first and see if anyone else has had similar experience. Attached is my configure.php

Hi there,


I am a complete newby searching for some similar http answers, but shouldnt URL in the line 'HTTPS_SERVER' in your config file read https? i.e.


define('HTTPS_SERVER', 'https://www.myshop.com');
