Good question... I dunno what is the answer to that question. I'll do some Googling and get back to you if I got an useful answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably could assist you..
Thank you good sir, that seems to have done the trick. So far so good..
Indeed I will opt for a "real" SSL cert once I get up and running..
You're most welcome..
That was a lot less "painless" than I imagined!.
Many times when using shared SSL the cart contents get dumped when switching to SSL, but yours seems to hold steady. I put something in the cart and tested it..
Keep your fingers crossed, and "keep on truckin".....
On the shared SSL note, I'm ok with the checkout etc, what concerns me is the backend storage of customer info..
The customer isn't using a 3rd party payment processor, he just likes the idea of logging in at the end of the day collecting the credit card info and processing it himself with a machine he already has installed and uses in his shop..
Obviously this saves money (no transactions fees etc) but is it safe?.
I'm far from being an "expert" on the subject, but from what I've read here, that is "against the rules" (no matter what country you're in)..
They could get fined, banned from procesing cards, etc.....
Perhaps you misunderstand me? or I burbled on unclearly..
He has a merchant account setup, with a payment card processor already in place, his business is established he's just moving online....
How could this be "against the rules" ???..
From what I've read, it doesn't matter..
You can't collect CC data online and process it manually... So I've read..
If I'm wrong, someone please correct me..
Like I said, I aint no expert on the subject...
MMMMMMmmm interesting and slightly ominous. Yeh I'd like to know the lowdown on that one...
If you store CC info locally, you have to be PCI compliant..
Maybe this will help:.
New regulations for manually processing credit card information., Inportant info for cc processing and PCI Compliance..
Firstly, excuse my ignorance, new to OS..
So I installed OS, with no problems, the problems started when I tried to configure my shared SSL. Then it all went pear shaped, no links working no CSS, etc..
I went to the appropriate config files - includes/config.php and admin/includes/config.php.
When I viewed them there was no database info or anything I could grasp? I presumed these would be written as I went through the installation process... DOH.
Anyhow here is my present includes/config.php:.
If anyone could help me out with what should be in the appropriate places, that would be much appreciated..

Need to be:.
Sometimes shared SSL can be a real pain in the posterior to get to work, but I'll try to get you as far as I can, one step at a time...
