Securing Virtuemart Backend Administration
« on: June 20, 2011, 06:40:32 am »

I am having a problem trying to enable SSL on the virtuemart backend, particularly the orders section. The checkout process is secured and seems to be working fine. I have selected "admin" and "orders" in the security tab, in configuration under "Shop areas which must use https", and actually selected them all, but it will not go to https when logged into virtuemart backend. How can I do this? I need to have the backend orders access secured.

I have tried to force SSL via the joomla backend, but there seems to be an unresolved bug than doesn't allow you to login when using the $live_site var in joomla configuration and I need to have this configured.

Any insight would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you,

Using Joomla 1.5.22 & VM 1.1.8
