Quick question: What exactly IS iPage.com and what's with their commercials? Thanks for any response. Second question.. Hi,.

I was wondering if anyone else has experienced this problem, cause frankly it has me quite stumped..

I have been working on customizing an installation of OS Commerce on my server, and it works fine on the HTTP side, but when I try to run it on HTTPS I get this problem..

When I try to check out, it requires that I do each step 2 or 3 times..

I had a similar problem when I tried to run the installer on HTTPS. It would take two or three tries to get to step 2, and then send me right back to step 1 again..

I'm not sure if this is an issue with my server or with OS Commerse, but I thought I might get some info from here before I talked to my provider..

Thanks in advance!!..

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

Comment #1

Does the OSC installer use cookies as well? Because I couldnt even get the installer to work (to get past step 3) in my httpsdocs folder...

Comment #2

FYI here is my configure.php settings.

Define('HTTP_SERVER', 'http://www.mydomain.ca'); // eg,.

Http://localhost.

- should not be empty for productive servers.

Define('HTTPS_SERVER', 'https://www.mydomain.ca'); // eg,.

Https://localhost.

- should not be empty for productive servers.

Define('ENABLE_SSL', true); // secure webserver for checkout procedure?.

Define('HTTP_COOKIE_DOMAIN', 'www.mydomain.ca');.

Define('HTTPS_COOKIE_DOMAIN', 'www.mydomain.ca');.

Define('HTTP_COOKIE_PATH', 'www.mydomain.ca/catalog/');.

Define('HTTPS_COOKIE_PATH', 'www.mydomain.ca/catalog/');.

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

Define('DIR_WS_HTTPS_CATALOG', '/catalog/');.

Should the COOKIE iPage domain and COOKIE PATH defines include "HTTPS://" ?

Comment #3

Try this:.

Define('HTTP_COOKIE_DOMAIN', 'mydomain.ca');.

Define('HTTPS_COOKIE_DOMAIN', 'mydomain.ca');.

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

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

Comment #4

Thanks, Im trying that now....

This question might be related:.

Which files should I have copied over into my httpsdocs folder? should I put all the OSCommerse file in both the httpdocs and httpsdocs folders?.

The install docs don't mention putting any files on the https server..

Should I run the installer on the https server as well as the http server, or just copy over the configure.php file?..

Comment #5

Ok, I just discovered something very stange indeed..

When I use Mozilla it works perfectly, without any problems at all..

But the problem is still there when I use Internet Explorer..

So the problem must be related to how my server is communicating over SSL with the browser.....

Comment #6

On most systems, there is not a separate folder for HTTPS files, which is why the osCommerce documentation doesn't mention it. I would think you'd have to duplicate your osC files there (NOT an actual install) if your web host requires such a thing. What a mess!.

I do note that the .htaccess which is included in the catalog folder of osC has some code that claims to "fix" something related to SSL for MSIE, though MSIE works fine with SSL on my store...

Comment #7

Im running on a virtual server with PLESK, and I think thats the way that all PLESK servers handle HTTPS, but I could be wrong..

I'll take a look at the .htaccess files, maybe theres a clue there...

Thanks..

Comment #8

I was having a similar prob and I set mine up as per Steves reccomendations and it works fine now. Im on a shared ssl so that may be your prob,I set mine up as so;.

Http cookie domain>my company name.com.

Https cookie domain>my company name.webhost name.com.

Http cookie path>catalog/.

Https cookie path>catalog/..

Comment #9

Seriously this problem has me pulling my hair out....

Im starting to think that maybe it does have to do with the cookie domain.. but I dont know what else to put as the cookie iPage domain other than mydomain.ca..

Im not using shared ssl, as my iPage domain has it's own ssl cert..

I've tried deleting the .htaccess files, and I still have the same problem..

I've tried changing the configure file in a million different ways, and still no luck...

Comment #10

See my post today about problems with using shared ssl and AOL. The config file is listed there works using a similar setup to what you have..

Http://forums.oscomm...showtopic=69169.

Also, unless you want to maintain a copy of all your files on both sides of your server, make a redirect page to put on your secoure server to direct users back to the http side after they log in or make a purchase..

Log into.

Http://shirleyscathouse.com/catalog.

To see how it is done if you have any questions, or I can post the code here...

Comment #11

Sorry, go to.

Http://www.dewmag.com.

I changed the pages for shirleyscathouse...

Comment #12

Thanks for your responce, I looked over your post, but it doesnt seem to be the same issue, tho it is similar..

It's different because I'm not using a shared ssl cert. My iPage domain has it's own certificate, and is running on Plesk..

So the http server is:.

Http://www.mydomain.ca/catalog/.

And the https server is:.

Https://www.mydomain.ca/catalog/.

If I upload html or php files into my httpsdocs folder I can access them by going to.

Https://www.mydomain.ca/.

The weird thing is, if I run the OSC installer on the https side, I have the same issue, and the installer doesnt use cookies as far as I can tell..

I have been looking at the code, and I thot it might be related to HTTP_GET_VARS/HTTP_POST_VARS but my tests show that those work on my server...

Comment #13

Hi David [OrionPax],.

Did you find a solution yet, because I have your exact same problem!.

My own iPage domain cert, IE 6.02 problem with setting up an account [need to refresh the page and only then it creates an account], with Mozilla 1.4...no problem..

I just can't seem to find the solution..

Does the local php setting: session.cookie_secure Off could do any harm in this?.

Meaning, should this be On ? .

Hope to hear from you soon..

Regards,.

Robert..

Comment #14

Solution found!.

When [in IE 6.0.2 advanced settings] I uncheck SSL 3.0 [only use SSL 2.0] the problem of NOT be able to create an account are solved!.

I guess the .htaccess needs an update?.

Regards,.

Robert..

Comment #15

If you could post this info it would be great, thanks!..

Comment #16

Hmm I tried that too, and it didnt work for me.. I suspect it was a problem with something my host had set up..

I changed host providers to get it working...

Comment #19

The usual cause for this sort of problem is incorrect settings for HTTPS_SERVER, HTTPS_COOKIE_DOMAIN and HTTPS_COOKIE_PATH in catalog/includes/configure.php. COOKIE_DOMAIn must match the iPage domain name given in HTTPS_SERVER and COOKIE_PATH must match the directory path for your "catalog" pages when connected by SSL. Many new osC users get these wrong (myself included until I figured it out...)..
