Yup, however you might wanna make sure and wait for another commenter to confirm my answer as I am not completely sure. Better yet, why don't you e-mail the iPage guys because they can give you an answer better...
In his webhost there is a "secure" folder with a cgi script folder and anyting you want secure you put in there, but your weblink willl change to www.commerce.vault.com./myhost ...hate it really...
That might make the file "secure", but if the data sent to and from the file isn't encrypted it's not "secure"...
Hi there seeems to be a an SSL for the site/page but I want to know if I can /split up or how to use for the checkout payment pages. - the pages will be in differnt folder /levels etcI dont think this can be done??.
It is like a bluehost, but are the files in different areas or it just the SSL cert that is shared?.
I don't know any way to move one of the osC files out of the osC folder and still reference it without losing the session ID. Except on servers where the SSL files are in another folder. But that doesn't count. Technially, it's still "inside" the osC folder in that case..
That doesn't mean there isn 't a way. It just means I personally don't know how..
Why not just get a "dirt cheap" SSL certificate from Go-Daddy ($29.99 American dollars per year) and not have to fool around with this "secure server" and "move this file there" garbage?..
At first I thought your client had his own server, but then you mentioned his webhost. If he is on shared hosting, then, from the looks of that long URL, his host may be offering shared SSL hosted on www.commerce.vault.com's server. That is, if your client requests that his iPage site be "secure", the parts he wants secured will be hosted (possibly copied) there..
My iPage hosting company offered something similar. I downloaded osCommerce from them, and it was all integrated from the start with a shared SSL with a similar cumbersome URL, although I changed things around later when I got a dedicated SSL cert. of my own. I don't know what the process was at their end, but using their shared SSL did not change my process for uploading files at all. I did not have to upload them to this different URL..
OsCommerce (at least my copy of it) automatically loads the checkout pages with an "https" prefix (if you have SSL enabled) from the secure iPage domain you designate in catalog/includes/configure.php and in catalog/admin/includes/configure.php..
If your client is indeed using shared hosting, then his iPage hosting company can assist with using shared SSL or with setting up a dedicated SSL. As Jim has pointed out, a "secure" server is one thing, but security is not complete without SSL..
Hope this helps,.
