What are the other payment options for iPage pro w/out credit card?

My 1st question is: What are the other payment options for iPage pro w/out credit card? Many thanks for any answer or 2. My 2nd question... Hello all:) I've just started designing my OSCommerce iPage website a month ago and already have a web iPage hosting account with I thought it would make sense to use it for my OSCommerce website..

I've purchased the proper SSL for this, but I've had a lot of trouble getting my account login pages secure in new versions of internet explorer. It comes up, "This page contains secure and non secure items." Admin is also coming up "You are not secured by an SSL connection.".

I've researched this problem for days with no luck. This DOES NOT seem to be a "http://" link anywhere coming up nonsecure. I have contacted my iPage hosting and the last message I received was -.

"Dear client, sorry to tell you that this issue can be handled by mod_write, however, it is unavailable in windows iPage hosting environment.".

Should I dump this iPage hosting and purchase new hosting? I've spent so much time and a bit of money on this. Or is there a way to solve this issue in the configure.php files? I do hope so. Any help will be much appreciated!!.

I would like to know the answer too. Anyone here know what is the answer to that question. I'll do some poking around and get back to you if I find an useful answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably could assist you..

Comment #1

OsC isn't recognizing the cue from the server that SSL is on..

Try this:.

In your.



Find this line (about line 41):.

$request_type = (getenv('HTTPS') == 'on') ? 'SSL' : 'NONSSL';.

Change it to:.

$request_type = (getenv('SERVER_PORT') == '443') ? 'SSL' : 'NONSSL';.

It's always a good idea to backup any file before making any edits..

Let me know..

If this doesn't work there are other ways to find the info to get it to work...

Hi. Thanks!.

That's much batter..

First of all I uploaded the.


File and then I changed the -.

// set the type of request (secure or not).

$request_type = (getenv('HTTPS') == 'on') ? 'SSL' : 'NONSSL';.


// set the type of request (secure or not).

// $request_type = (getenv('HTTPS') == 'on') ? 'SSL' : 'NONSSL';.

$request_type = ($_SERVER['HTTPS'] == 'on') ? 'SSL' : 'NONSSL';.

As instructed at the bottom of the thread..

I had a play around and removed the.


And the annoying pop-up is gone anyway!.

So the second bit of code must have solved the issue anyway! I've removed the.


Permanently, but what was it supposed to have done?.

One very small issue that I have noticed is the pages all stay at https:// whatever pages I browse after selecting login.php (not singing in, just viewing the page). It goes back to http:// when I sign in and log out fine..

But is so much better than how it was before with the annoying pop-up. Nice one.

Oh, and I still have the, 'You are not protected by a secure SSL connection.' message in admin, but the browser says, https://Any ideas?..

Comment #6

I made an account and the only links that stay https after login are the ones across the top..

Has to be in the way the code is written..

The myenv.php was just to display server varaibles that would most commonly be used to detect when SSL is active..

Even if you access your admin with an.




That's bizarre......

Comment #7

Yes. I'll investigate this tonight. I'll read through the changes my web iPage hosting made just in case they did something when they were helping me before.. Thanks again for your help.

I thought I'd never get this iPage site working..

The following link is a to my friend's website. He is the guy who got me into using oscommerce. Click on 'account', but don't sign in or create an account. Just click on a link, eg 'specials.' You'll find the address bar goes back form https:// to http:// properly... if you see what I mean. On my iPage website it stays at https://..

Comment #9

The account link along the top needs to be https..

Comment #11

Thank you! I'm using an sts_template which my friend was kind enough to upload for me in the beginning. He has a similar issue I noticed at his new oscommerce site:.


It's practically the template he gave me in the beginning. It's very good in a lot of ways, but it may have been an idea to have started with the basic oscommerce package to learn the ropes. I'm getting more used to it all now. I'm adding direct links along the options at the top of my page, but with.


At the end. seems to be doing the trick (i think)...
