Hi all,

I just got a SSL for a site I am building and accidentally forgot the www in the certificate. Is this going to effect my magento secure pages?

Cheers,
Neil

Yep. The customers browsers are going to throw a massive OMG THIS SITE IS HAXORING YOUR COMPUTER error. Same error if you try to use a self-signed cert, really a PITA honestly.
Only if they check the details of the error will they see its a URL mismatch, but how many users ever do that?

Your best bet is to switch your site to not use www, or buy the cert again with the correct url.
