That's a good question. I'm not sure what is the answer to that question. I'll do some investigation and get back to you if I got an decent answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably could assist you..

That's ok. Thanks for all your help anyway germ. At least you have given me a few ideas and I can do some research and see if I can find out whats wrong with it...

Comment #2

I still have other problems but I got that part figured out! all I did is.

Use the full path.

On all the addresses and it worked. See where I bolded your code. we had the same problem, so I hope this works for you as well...

Thanks for the tip duaman. I tried it but unfortunately it is still not working. I've been playing around with it for hours but with no luck. I spoke to my webhosting company and they told me it was a bug in oscommerce and to download the latest version, but I already am running the latest version so that is no help..

If I get my own SSL will that fix all the problems? Im running out of ideas here...

I am having this same problem, however it only occurs when I'm clicking the "add to cart" button from the product_info page..

If I click "buy now" on the index.php page (where all the products are lined up in the category) it works just fine!.

I have looked over the previous threads but don't exactly know how to apply the changes to my specific config files. Is there any progress on this issue?.

Thanks a bunch..

P.S. I have looked at the Global register and both settings are off. I am unable to determine where I make that change. I see the php directory, but don't know how to get there.

I have made some changes to the code, and I can now get the cookies to record on any unsecure page, but cookies will not record on any secure pages..

Ie. You can add products to your cart and the cart works properly. However when you goto a secure page and login the cart is empty. Once logged in you can return to any unsecure page and the products are still in the cart, however you are logged out again. Before the changes, everytime you went to a secure page the cart was dumped. So it is obviously not recording cookies on secure pages..

The changes I made from the original file are as follows:.


Define('HTTP_SERVER', '');.

//define('HTTPS_SERVER', '');.

Define('HTTPS_SERVER', '');.

Define('ENABLE_SSL', true);.










Define('HTTP_COOKIE_PATH', '/');.

Define('HTTPS_COOKIE_PATH', '/');.

Define('DIR_WS_HTTP_CATALOG', '/');.

Define('DIR_WS_HTTPS_CATALOG', '/');[/b].

Now all I need to do is get the cookies to record on secure pages. Any help?.

Ok, I cant work it out. If I buy my own SSL will that solve the problem? And if I do buy my own SSL, do I have to buy a dedicated IP Address to install the certificate?..

Comment #8

Just checking..

It's still not making a cookie when going to SSL so the cart gets dumped..

And I haven't a clue why..

The cookie settings I've suggested have worked elsewhere..

Like I said before shared SSL and osC can be a real challenge...
