shared SSL + hostgator store = https:// problems
« on: August 02, 2010, 15:43:48 pm »

I have another problem.  I'm using hostgator on a site with VM.  I purchased their SSL and it works fine... kind of...  I noticed when I go to my site in https mode: I get an error in IE that says:

"This webpage contains content that will not be delivered using secure https connetion, which could compromise the security of the entire webpage"

Now, I know this error is because of my config file saying http://www. instead of https://www. I know that much.

But here's my problem, I JUST want the ecommerce section to load https, which I also know can be done through the VM config. but then again, my joomla config I would assume specifies http://

Has anybody had this problem before?  I've searched for days with nothing.

I had this problem.

It was down to a module that I had added.  Most of the shopping page was https but this module was just loading as http.
Look at the source code generated for that page and see the http:// offending url, this should give you an indication of the problem module.

You need to look in the source code after files, images or links that are coming by non-ssl urls. Search the code for any http:// and look up where it is coming from (module, plugin, template, ...). That way you can change it to https version. Only if all links on a page are https://, the error message will disappear.
