Going from HTTP to HTTPS on the same site?

Going from HTTP to HTTPS on the same site?

Hi folks, Just looking for a bit of information for a client who has a paypal checkout, but was recommended to get an SSL and Https for the cart pages. I was just wondering what the procedure is for changing links, linking, modifying the existing eCart, in order to acknowledge the new directory or secure pages? Is this something that should be accomplished with htaccess instead and a rewrite ?? If so, how? And will it break the existing eCart's coding?
Thanks
Jeff

This depends on whether is a shared SSL Certificate or not.

If the only thing that changes is going from http to https, then you just need to change the checkout behavior on the cart page. Edit the redirect from checkout.php to checkout.php


if is is a shared certificate, then it will be a bit more involved, see the "Secure Socket Layer (SSL) and eCart sites" in the How To Section of the eCart support page:
ecart/

on the cart.php page, look for the following code:

php:
<?php

//WA eCart Redirect Check Out
if (isset($_POST["WA_Store_Cart_Checkout"]) || isset($_POST["WA_Store_Cart_Checkout_x"]))     {
  
$Redirect_redirStr="checkout.php";
  if (
$Redirect_redirStr != "")     {
    if (isset(
$_SERVER['QUERY_STRING']) && $_SERVER['QUERY_STRING'] != "")     {
      if (
strpos($Redirect_redirStr"?") < 0)     {
        
$Redirect_redirStr .= "?".$_SERVER['QUERY_STRING'];
      }
      else     {
        
$Redirect_redirStr .= "&".$_SERVER['QUERY_STRING'];
      }
    }

    
$WA_Store_Cart->redirStr $Redirect_redirStr;
  }
  
$WA_Store_Cart->cartAction "Checkout";
}
?>




and change the line:
$Redirect_redirStr="checkout.php";


to a fully qualified link to the HTTPS server:
$Redirect_redirStr="https://www.mydomain.com/checkout.php";

I cant find any documentation on switching to a Shared SSL. Where could I find that?

I'm not sure I follow, using a shared SSL Certificate is something your host will implement. the host sill install the SSL Certificate on your server.

What specific information are you looking for?

If it's a shared hosting account then the web hosting company will have to install your ssl.
