Problem Now That Certificate Is Installed!
My client insisted that the site be secured with a certificate, so have done this. I purchased the GeoTrust Premium certificate through 1and1.com, put the required coding into the htaccess file and the site is secured.
I am using PayPal Standard as the gateway. I have found only two entries in the PayPal configuration screens for making this work with the now secured site. I changed the address to:
ipn.php for IPN and ecommerce for return.
Despite this, I am getting the following error message when clicking on the "cancel and return link back to the web site"
Your browser sent a request that this server could not understand.
Reason: You're speaking plain HTTP to an SSL-enabled server port.
Instead use the HTTPS scheme to access this URL, please.
I am currently excanging tech support emails with PayPal.
They have come back to me and confirmed that both of the entries I have made are correct and have asked the following question:
"I show the account currently has the URL ipn.php for IPN and ecommerce for return
However, these values are overridden by transactions containing the NOTIFY_URL and RETURN commands.
Please verify any button or cart settings are not sending conflicting commands."
Are there any settings that must be changed in any of the Power Store PHP files that they are referring to correct this issue?
I have assumed (which is probably not correct) that once the order is submitted to PayPal using the two configurations above, that the issue is with the link back to the secured site as it clearly shows the http address and not the https address? (within the PayPal configuration)
I don't know what to tell them.
Can you give me some input on this, please?
