cart in ssl not redirecting to checkout.php

Hello,
Well it was working then I uploaded a revised version of the cart, recoded for the ssl and now when I click on check out, I go into the ssl and I get the page that says your cart is empty. It does not go to my checkout.php page. Here is what is in my browser:
cart.php instead of :
checkout.php
I am not sure if I left something out in the code, so I have included my cart.php page. I need to get this site up and running by Monday night...I would appreciate heip.
Thank you,
K
If you would like to see what happens you can go to:
index.php
site is in a test file.

the problem is that you are changing domains.

See the "Applying SSL to your eCart checkout" tutorial on the eCart support page:
ecart/

ssl

Hi,
It worked when I originally set it up, then I changed the cart and reuploaded it. The ssl cert is under kshotz.com. I should be able to use this for other domains under kshotz.com. That is what I was told by Host Gator. I did read the article, I have ecart 4 so I read the one titled SSL and ecart sites. From the looks of it I would have to redo my checkout page. Is this so? Then I am wondering why it previously worked when I set the redirect to the https.
When I go into my ssl files I do see the files for my test site and I have been uploading new cart and checkout and confirm to it as I upload to my http site. Still stumped as to why it worked before and not now.

the issue is that you are changing domains when going to the ssl server.


you have the normal pages at:
index.php

and the ssl page at:
cart.php

the first is using the domain:
www.karenshotz.com


the second is using a different domain:
www.kshotz.com/


the tutorial i linked to previously will walk you through the procedure of passing the cart contents to the ssl domain.

ssl

Karenshotz.com is under the domain of kshotz.com karenshotz.com is a sub domain of kshotz.com. I was told that should not make a difference using the ssl. so the redirect to the ssl would be the path: checkout.php, wouldn't it? I did the tut for ecart4 re setting up an ssl. When I was doing the checkout page, none was made, my old one still existed. Is this a problem? I uploaded the cart, checkout, confirm and wacart pages to my http and https and I still get:
cart.php in my browser...no passing to checkout.php
Thank you,

it does make a difference with sessions.


the issue is this:

The browsing session creates a cookie on the client computer with n ID.

Cookies are domain based.

As far as a cookie is concerned, the address:
www.karenshotz.com


and:
www.kshotz.com/


are 2 different domains. It does not matter how you register them, they are still 2 differant domains.

even the addresses:
www.karenshotz.com


and
karenshotz.com


would be considered 2 different domains by the session cookie.


when you have 2 different domains, you need to pass the session information from one to the other.


the tutorial I linked to originally has instructions on how to accomplish this.

Thank you, Jason. I am getting through now. Only one item is not being passed and that is my promo code discount. How would I put the code into the checkout.php page where the rest of the variables are beign passed?
<tr>
<td class="eC_SummaryLabel">WWMAG 20%</td>
<td>-<?php echo WA_eCart_DisplayMoney($winkee, $winkee->GetDiscounts()); ?></td>
</tr>
Also has a session:
<?php
if (!session_id()) session_start();
if((((isset($_POST["txtpromocode"]))?$_POST["txtpromocode"]:"") != "")) {
$_SESSION["promocode"] = "".((isset($_POST["txtpromocode"]))?$_POST["txtpromocode"]:"") ."";
}
?>
Thank you,
K

in the hidden form that is created on the cart page, create a new hidden form element:

php:
<input type="hidden" name="txtpromocode" value="</php echo(isset($_SESSION["promocode"])?$_SESSION["promocode"]:""); ?>" />
