Got a question, hope someone can answer... Hosting reviews? iPage, Netfirms, Yahoo, etc...? Thanks for any answer or 2. My 2nd question... I have a shop set up working perfectly with no ssl and I was wondering if some kind sole could let me know how to set up the shop with ssl. I have had a tinker and can get the whole shop to work through ssl but not just the checkout - my account - login etc..

I have ssl enabled on my iPage hosting package but do not as yet have a certificate. i'm guessing it will work using the certificate plesk provides but with a popup saying not trusted.....etc..

Can anyone tell me how I configure this please?.

Thanks in advance...

Hmm... I need to find out myself. I don't know what is the answer to your question. I'll do some investigation and get back to you if I got an anything. You should email the people at iPage as they probably could assist you..

Every web host is a bit different in how they handle SSL. I suggest you first start with your host's documentation for how to use SSL and proceed from there. Verify that you can open pages in SSL directly (not through osCommerce.).

Certificate warnings have various causes - a common one is that the iPage domain doesn't match the certificate...

I have had the whole iPage site working through ssl. I have a HTTPSDOCS folder. I was hoping you could let me know how to set it up so that only the pages that need it uses ssl and everything else uses normal http.. there is a plesk certificate there, but I don't want to pay for one until it's all working hunkydory!!..

So your host requires you to put SSL-accessed files in a separate folder? I've seen reports of other hosts that do that - how lame....

You will need to duplicate your catalog folder with one copy in the HTTPS area and another in the HTTP area. Any changes you make will need to be made twice...

I think Plesk is one of those environments that requires a special ssl or private folder for ssl documents..

Have you tried anything yet? Can you see your index.html via the shared ssl?..
