Installed SSL, how do I secure checkout page?

Discussion in 'Security' started by FloridaClay, Feb 21, 2012.

    I have purchased an SSL certificate and the host uploaded it to the server. I'm no expert on this, but I can now visit the site with both 'http' and 'https'. The idea was to secure the checkout page but not the other pages. When I mentioned this to my host, he said I need to:
    SEMrush
    So if you want your checkout page to be secured, you will need to link to it with a preceding https://, or you will need to get with the script developer to find out how to enable https support for the script. Another alternative is to conduct the entire site over HTTPS which has it's benefits and pitfalls.

    I don't want to cut the entire site over to https, so how do I secure the checkout page if I have a Magento site?

    you might be able to do with with .htaccess - i dont know magento, whats the link you are trying to secure? is it something simple like domain.com/checkout.php or is it more like domain.com/product.php?id=checkout (for example)

    Hi,

    This is possible with URL Rewrite. There is no need to use https:// for main web site every time a user access it. You can redirect checkout page to https:// keeping other pages at http://
    You can use ISAPI Rewrite for this which is much more easy to implement.

    Thanks for the information everyone.

    @ dayvo: The page is http://domain.com/checkout/onepage/

    @samirj09: Thank you for the link but I don't exactly understand the tutorial. What if there are multiple pages that I want secured? The page appears to only allow one page entry?

    @ StormInternet: Thank you for the comment but you are way over my head. I wouldn't even know where to begin with that information.

    To secure the checkout etc, go to admin panel > system > settings >server > use SSL:yes

    - Did you do this though, and find that checkout still wasn't secured?

    If even you can't solve your problem then try this http://answers.ssl.com/ . Hope this information helps you.
