SSL Certificate

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I currently use Version 2.3.3.4 for my store. I bought a SSL Certificate. My hosting company has installed it already. I got to configure it for the SSL Cert to work.

 

I don't know how to configure it. Can anyone please give me instruction how to configure. I  want to retain the current look of my store.

 

Thanking you,

 

Nathan

You need to edit the includes/configure.php and admin/includes/configure.php file. You will see an enable ssl setting that is false. Change it to true. In the admin file, all http should be https. This thread should help.

Hi Jack,

 

Thanks for your reply. I changed the enable SSL setting to TRUE in both files. And also followed the instructions given by the "Thread" you provided. Nothing has changed in my store. I don't see a Padlock at the bottom of my site. When I load the site with "https" the images in the store do NOT load. I have no clue what's going wrong.

 

Thanks again,

 

Nathan

IE, FF and Chrome all show the padlock at the top of the page. Maybe you are looking in the wrong place? Or, it might be a server issue. Please post a link to your site if you would like someone to look at it.

Hi, this is the way

catalog/includes/configure.php

  define('HTTP_SERVER', 'https://www.domain.es');
  define('HTTPS_SERVER', 'https://www.domain.es');
  define('ENABLE_SSL', true);

admin/includes/configure.php

  define('HTTP_SERVER', 'https://www.domain.es');
  define('HTTPS_SERVER', 'https://www.domain.es');
  define('ENABLE_SSL', true);

  define('HTTP_CATALOG_SERVER', 'https://www.domain.es');
  define('HTTPS_CATALOG_SERVER', 'https://www.domain.es');

regards

Hi Jack & Lionel

 

 

Thanks for your reply. I have got exactly the same script as suggested by Lionel in his reply. What i see on top of the site is NO padlock but an " I" in a circle which says the site is not fully secure.

 

Please have a Look at my site URL  here    https://www.my-estore.com.au

 

Thanks

@@natkris  Nathan...it looks like you have it configured correctly however you have unsecure/mixed content on your pages...or at least some of them.  You can use this site to see what the various issues are.  Fix those things and you should see a proper padlock.

Hi Dan,

 

Thank you for your reply and the link to check the issues causing problems to my site. That site was excellent. I found what was causing the problem. The links to all my images I had http://

I changed all the link to https:// After the change, the SSL worked fine. I see the Padlock next to the URL.  What a relief!

 

Thank your very much for your help. And also thanks  to Jack & Lionel for all the help and links to find solutions. 

 

Regards,

 

Nathan

Hi Dan, Jack & Lionel

 

Referring to my last post, I was very happy that my SSL installation was successful . That did not last long. At that time I was foolishly focusing on getting the SSL Padlock to appear on my site. I did not know in that process something else has happened to the store until I wanted to add a new product to a existing category folder. I could not do it. Made few attempts, all failed. I realized something gone wrong and checked whether the Checkout works . that too failed. That means, my customers cannot buy products from my store. I got panicked and called my Hosting company who installed the SSL. They said the SSL installation is fine and they as always install SSL in the Root Folder. They believe the problem is with osCommerce.  To get my store back working, I asked them to uninstall the SSL. They simply reset the store back to a date before the SSL installation. Now my store is working as normal but no SSL.  Please can you tell me what could be the problem? Is there a solution?

 

Regards,

 

Nathan

Have a read of the following thread. It may help you.

 

http://forums.oscommerce.com/topic/410451-time-to-get-secure-if-you-havent-already/page-4

 

I followed this tread when changing my site over to https on every page and it worked fine, but it was harder than just changing the configure files.

 

I also had a problem with one box on the site and only in chrome

 

http://forums.oscommerce.com/topic/410571-security-padlock-warning-error-in-only-chrome-on-https-site/

 

I also had to resubmit the site to google webmaster tools using the https rather than http, and also create new xml sitemaps that had to resubmitted also.

 

By the way I just clicked on the link for your site and there was a large certificate security warning so you should make some changes quick.

Here's what comes up on your site

my-estore.com.au uses an invalid security certificate. 
The certificate is only valid for the following names:
 *.digitalpacific.com.au, digitalpacific.com.au

@@natkris  Nathan,

 

Referring to @@John W 's post above, a SSL certificate is linked to a specific website URL. Please note that domain.com and www.domain.com are *two different* URLs.

Sorry, I got a phone call and had to hurry. 

His are way different!  Like the wrong cert has been installed, or probably his haven't been installed.  Those are wildcard certs showing up.

@@John W  John,

 

Thank you. I too saw that the certificate was for a totally different domain. The " www -vs- no www " was intended as an additional explanation of why certificates sometimes don't work.

 

Malcolm

 

PS: digitalpacific.com.au appears to be a domain registrar and/or hosting company.

HI John & Malcolm,

 

Thank you very much for the reply. I contacted my hosting company Digital Pacific. They fixed the problem. Now the SSL Cert shows my Domain Name. 

 

Now my main problem is to get the SSL working. I don't want the Warning Sign, not to trust the site, appearing next to my URL. 

 

I still need help to get rid of the Warning Sign please.

 

Regards,

 

Nathan

It can take some effort and time to get a site to work properly with SSL. Especially if you go full SSL front and back. Although, sometimes you can revert to the basics to see if you can get it to work correctly. Besides refreshing your browser and clearing your cache, IF you use a CDN (Content Delivery Network) you have to clear / purge your files there. One of the main functions of a CDN is to store your files for quicker access. Things that don't change often like CSS, JS, SSL, etc. can sit in their cache for a while.

 

It's just a thought Nathan.

 

Take care

Bill

I'm not seeing any warning when I go to your site now.  Can you show me which page you see warnings?

Hi John,

 

Thanks for your reply. Finally after many ours of attempt I got the SSL working. Now I see the Padlock next to my URL on all three browsers. Your input was crucial to fix the problem because the  SSL installed incorrectly. The SSL  under digital pacific domain name, not under my-estore.com.au Even the hosting company did not detect the mistake. They kept on saying there is no problem at their end. Thanks again John, that was a great help to solve the problem.

 

I also want to thank Jack. Dan, Lionel &, Malcolm for their valuable contributions.Without the help from all of you I would not have got the SSL working. 

 

Regards,

 

Nathan.
