// Define the webserver and path parameters

// * DIR_FS_* = Filesystem directories (local/physical)

// * DIR_WS_* = Webserver directories (virtual/URL)

define('HTTP_SERVER', 'http://******');

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

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

define('HTTP_COOKIE_DOMAIN', 'http://********');

define('HTTPS_COOKIE_DOMAIN', 'https://*********');

define('HTTP_COOKIE_PATH', '/');

define('HTTPS_COOKIE_PATH', '/');

define('DIR_WS_HTTP_CATALOG', '/oscommerce/');

Try this, on the last line (make sure that 'mysql' is inserted)


define('STORE_SESSIONS', 'mysql'); // leave empty '' for default handler or set to 'mysql'


And where you have


define('HTTP_COOKIE_DOMAIN', 'http://********');


Use instead


define('HTTP_COOKIE_DOMAIN', 'www.yourdomain.com');


Other than that your config file looks okay. Hope this helps - Vger

thanx rhea for the reply, i did that still the same story. it works jst fine in the http mode but i don't knw why it plays up when its transferred to https. my account for ssl was created a month ago and it shows up the certificate when u transfer to checkout then when u press ok it says page cannot b found with the url

https://*************/***/checkout_shipping.php?osCsid=0a1e1041bcd9a8099e11ce78866017, but in the actual page it says page cannot b found.


i might sound a bit silly but is there any other folder where i need to create a folder for ssl? cos i thought ssl is jst a connection and it works directly from the same folders created in normal root directories. i have tried setting persistent connection as both true and false, it doesn't work!



here is the database connection


// define our database connection

define('DB_SERVER', 'localhost');

define('DB_SERVER_USERNAME', '*******');

define('DB_SERVER_PASSWORD', '******');

define('DB_DATABASE', '*******');

define('USE_PCONNECT', 'true'); // use persistent connections?

define('STORE_SESSIONS', 'mysql');
