Activate SSL for your site

This describes the fundamentals of how to get SSL working in osCMax and doesn't address the initial setup of SSL on your webserver. Refer to your hosting provider, to install the SSL certificate on your server.


SSL (a.k.a. https:) is an additional protocol that will produce an unnecessary overhead if activated for your whole website. It should be activated only for areas where sensitive information is gathered. Any references that point to non-https pages may result in a partial secure page, which is flagged by the browser. This should be avoided.

Catalog Side

Edit catalog/includes/config.php

define('HTTPS_CATALOG_SERVER', ''); define('ENABLE_SSL_CATALOG', 'true');

Admin Side

Edit catalog/youradmin/includes/config.php

define('HTTP_SERVER', ''); define('HTTP_CATALOG_SERVER', ''); define('HTTPS_CATALOG_SERVER', ''); define('ENABLE_SSL_CATALOG', 'true');
