SSL steps

Recommended Posts

I've searched thru here but can't seem to find out exactly what steps to take to get this to work. I must be missing something. This is what I've done:

 

Enabled shared SSL in admin

Changed configure.php to:

 

define('HTTP_SERVER', 'http://coastalmermaid.com'); // eg, http://localhost - should not be empty for productive servers

define('HTTPS_SERVER', 'https://coastalmermaid.com/catalog/'); // eg, https://localhost - should not be empty for productive servers

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

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

define('HTTPS_COOKIE_DOMAIN', 'www.coastalmermaid.com');

 

What else has to be done? Or is there something wrong with my settings?

 

Thanks

Linda

You need to get your shared ssl path from your hosting company I am pretty sure it is not

 

'https://coastalmermaid.com

 

This is what you would have if you had your own certificate.


The Knowledge Base is a wonderful thing.

Do you have a problem? Have you checked out Common Problems?

There are many very useful osC Contributions

Are you having trouble with a installed contribution? Have you checked out the support thread found Here

BACKUP BACKUP BACKUP!!! You did backup, right??

richard, thanks. I was reading the online manual but it said after you submit for the temp certificate, you're secure. Sounded simple enough.

 

I had the ssl enabled. I've been going around and around with the help online but haven't gotten my question answered. If you or someone can, I'd appreciate it.

 

I applied or submitted for a temporary certificate. When I checked the Force encryption and require 128 bit encryption when I hit my page, I get an error saying it's a secured page (my page is not displayed). The help said I shouldn't check those boxes. When I unchcked those, my site is not secure.

 

However, when I typed in https://domain.com I see my site with the lock, etc (but it was on the whole site and I didn't want that) My question is, I think I need to point the security to the https part but I don't know how.

 

I hope I'm making sense.
