VM and shared secure certificate, secure url problems
« on: August 18, 2008, 10:56:38 am »
Hi,

I have a Joomla 1.5.3 and VM 1.1.0 at http://audiotrak.co.uk

The problem I'm experiencing (like a lot of other people judging by search results) is the transition between https and http while going through the process of buying.

The certificate I'm using is:
Code: [Select]
We have mapped the URL:-

https://web44.secure-secure.co.uk/audiotrak.co.uk/ to http://www.audiotrak.co.uk

Please note the s in https.

This means that any files that are hosted on your main website can also be loaded securely, just link to this URL when you need to securely load a page.

Now the problem is that after a user registers they get an email with a confirmation link that points to https://web44.secure-secure.co.uk/audiotrak.co.uk/blablabla (random code) but when they click it it says that it's not valid.

Then I disabled the confirmation bit so people just have to got o shop and buy, but if someone is in the process of ordering or checking out and clicks somewhere outside of the shop it gives a 404.

Is there something I messed up in the VM settings or is it a known bug and not a fixable one? If so, how else can I accept payments on the site using a secure connection?

I'm not an expert on this, as I've just posted something of a similar nature.  However, since the certificate is being shown as not valid, have you tried calling up the tech support people for the company that issued the certificate?  There could be something "off" with the certificate itself.

I contacted them, it's a good certificate.
