    Hi Guys, wondering if anyone here can either help me, or knows someone who can.

    I recently migrated an OsCommerce install to a new host and activated SSL.

    Since doing that I seem to be having problems with people checking out.

    Checking out with an existing account seems OK

    Checking out without an account in Google Chrome seems OK sometimes

    Any combination of guest checkout or account checkout with any other browsers seems to result in the basket being emptied, account not created etc.

    I think it is either a problem with the hosting and a PHP setting isn't enabled to pass the variables or a problem with the SSL certificate.

    This is paid work and needs completing ASAP. Please PM me if you can do this or can recommend someone who can.

    Thanks

    Are you flicking between http and https in the same session either client end or back end? Session variables and cookies do not work on both - they have to be set for each protocol. ie if you set session variables via http then try to access them via https they will not be present unless either you pass the session id and reread the session or redirect everything to https via htaccess so they never get set in separate states. Also if cookies are created on http and don't have the security parameter set to true they won't be readable via https.

    No, it's sitewide https now, no http anywhere.

    And do you have any backend calls such as exec or curl or whatever? They need to access the right protocol as well.

    I couldn't tell you. OsCommerce has an option for turning on SSL in the configure.php file so I would expect that any included services used would be changed too but I really don't know.
