I'm stumped. I'm not so sure what is the right answer to your question. I'll do some investigation and get back to you if I bump into an answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably can help you..

If I go into the address bar and type https it does go secure. however then if I click to another link withing admin it goes back to http..

Explain what you mean by htaccess? I have turned on folder protection where you have to enter a password to get into admin but it is not very effective against hackers...

Codechick6, I just ran into the exact same problem. All you need to do is open up your configure.php in your admin folder and change line #14 from:.

Define('HTTP_SERVER', 'http://www.yourserver.com');.

To.

Define('HTTP_SERVER', 'https://www.yourserver.com');.

That should force all relative paths to include your secure area..

Ssl does not stop people from hacking. you need to protect via htaccess or admin access with levels contribution or both..

Comment #4

So why is it recommended to have SSL ?

Comment #5

SSL encrypts the data between your computer and the server so no one else can look at it in route...

Comment #6

I've made the necessary changes to line #14 (see below), but when I log into my Admin it still says it's not secure:.

Define('HTTP_SERVER', 'https://www.mydomain.com');.

Also, line #17 = define('ENABLE_SSL_CATALOG', 'true');.

Can anyone provide any help?..

Comment #7

Does your server where you're iPage hosting the iPage domain have your SSL license setup. SSL Normally costs a lil bit...

Comment #8

We purchased and installed the SSL ourselves and it's working for the Catalog, however I can't get the Admin to be secure. I've made all the necessary changes based on what's been posted on this forum, so I can't figure out why it's not working...

Comment #9

Well, I figured out why it wasn't working... For anyone who might have the same problem. I had a couple of things needing to be changed:.

1. In the admin/includes/configure.php I didn't have the Enable SSL statement correct - should be:.

Define('ENABLE_SSL', true);.

2. Secondly, my iPage hosting service uses the admin/includes/local/configure.php, so I had to make changes there as well to point to the.

Https://www.domain.com.

And change the line.

Define('ENABLE_SSL', 0); to define('ENABLE_SSL', 1);.

Thanks...
