Implementing SSL

I am trying to use the SSL feature. Here is what I have so far:

SSL root path : https://###/username/shop/

SSL Store URL: https://###/username/shop/

Standard Store URL: http://www.###.com/shop/

I am using a shared secure server because it comes with the hosting package.

What is happening is this: http://www.###.com/shop/username/shop/index.php...

What am I doing wrong?

What I would really like to do is just have the checkout in SSL. Is that possible?

Any info is greatly appreciated.

I can't answer your question about having the entire store (except checkout) NOT under ssl. The following pages are designed to be run under ssl if available:

Cart: basket, cart, checkout, complete, confirm, gateway, remote, and template

User: login, logout, recover, register, account, addressbook, downloads, openid, profile, and vieworder

If you really want to try this, edit the file classesssl.class.php for the variable $this->_ssl_pages on line 63.

I have learned of a few hosting providers that have the ssl version of hosted accounts on a different server (keeping the non-secure and secure account contents synced). As such, the SSL Root Path may be different than what CubeCart has calculated for the non-ssl Root Path. But this is a Root Path, not a web address (URL). So, the root path will take the form that looks something like a filesystem path: /public/###/html/username/shop (probably without the trailing slash). Consult with your hosting provider if your hosted account control panel does not reveal the system path to your CubeCart installation.

The hosting provider will be able to tell you the relationship between the "https directory" and the normal 'document root' folder, and how, if anything, calling a page by https://whatever changes how the server responds and from where, if different, the directories the files are read from.
