Problem with https testing server for checkout

Problem with https testing server for checkout

I have got a store that is ready to go live, and it is sitting in a https SSL folder, but I am having trouble with testing the checkout facility because I am using a test domain.

When I click from the cart page to checkout, the testing domain address is replaced with the live domain address. Trouble is, the live domain is with the current online store. I will be transferring the domain to my test site once the test site is proved to be OK.

This is what happens:

-> Click Products in menu
-> Click a product
-> Add it to cart
-> Click checkout
-> Address changes from test to live domain!

Trouble is, I can't see where in the database I've entered the live domain!

Here's the testing server address which is awaiting the transfer of the live domain:


Why is the domain name changing?

in the webassist/plugins/shopping_cart/checkout_form.php file, the following code at line 1 sets redirect to the HTTPS server:

$testRedirect = "https://".$_SERVER['SERVER_NAME'].$_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'];

on your server, even though you are using the testing URL, the $_SERVER['SERVER_NAME'] variable must be set to the live URL

during testing, you can change that line of code to:

$testRedirect = "".$_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'];

to force it to use the test URL

I am getting too many redirects and the page errors!

I have been trying to test it as a live site, ie: I have unchecked the 'test' check box in the admin section, but as I've mentioned, I am trying to test this before the customer moves his domain name over to my servers. I want to ensure the site is working properly before he drops the connection to his current working site.

The $testRedirect... does that apply to the site when the site has been set to test mode? I need to test this live so that all payments are going through successfully. I have tested in both test mode and non-test mode where I have disabled the SSL requirement, the payment has gone through sagepay, but has shown at sagepay as a failed payment because it wasn't on a SSL. Because I don't have possession of the domain yet, I can't use the correct domain where the site is expecting the SSL to be.

It's getting a bit messy!
