That's a good question. I'm not sure what is the right answer. I'll do some research in Google and get back to you if I discover an anything. You should email the people at iPage as they probably can answer it..

Comment #1

I checked with the iPage hosting company and that is my complete server path. So now I am really stuck!!.

What do you mean I may need to load files to the secure path? Do you mean have specific pages in that directory? Should I have 2 stores, one entirely https and the other http? Man I am confused, I think I have decided that https is really complex and therefore any time I go anywhere near it I think way too much!.

HELP!!!.

Comment #2

It isn't complex, but you do have to do it right, and "right" varies by iPage hosting providers..

Your osCommerce store does not seem to be online, so I can't take a look to see what is wrong. I go to the URL in the configure.php you posted, even trying the /cleaneffects/ subfolder, but no osC store..

Typically, when you use shared SSL, there is something else in the URL that identifies your site. Sometimes it's a folder name, sometimes a ~username, sometimes a subdomain. It is not clear to me that you have specified it correctly in your configure.php - what does your host say you need to access https files?.

Geotex's comment about loading files refers to the state on SOME web hosts where they make you load into a separate area files to be accessed by https..

If you can point us to an active copy of your web store we can take a look. Also, you have revealed your MySQL database name and password - I suggest changing the password at the least..

Comment #3

As soon as I put up that config file I saw that! So the password is changed..

The store has changed to.

Http://www.silentvoi...m/cleaneffects/.

Please help!!.

Comment #4

You have HTTP_COOKIE_DOMAIN the same as HTTPS_COOKIE_DOMAIN - this prevents osc from appending the session ID to the URL when making the transition. The HTTPS_COOKIE_DOMAIN should read what you have above...

Comment #5

Thanks I think I have got it sussed!!.

Man this is fun - although a little tiring when you are just learning!.

Thank you so much, I genuinely appreciate it! other than the problems, how do you think the store looks? Be honest!.

Also in some pages I see "Let's See What We Have Here" as the title, I have done a search for this across the entire local iPage site (I use dreamweaver) but I cant seem to find that statement anywhere, where does that phrase come from?.

Comment #6

Sorry, I found the solution to this, and didnt mention it here to finish the topic off fully..

It is found in languages/english/index.php but because it is stored in a php variable it needs an escape character before the ' in Let's. Thats why I couldnt find it when I did a search for Let's see (it actually looks like Let\'s see).

Sorry about that, but thanks for your help!.

First step is to contact your iPage hosting company for the correct path in the secure server. You are using a shared SSL, and your server path appears to be incomplete..

You may also have to load files to the secure path, depending on how your iPage hosting company manages the secure sever..
