Greetings

We are going to implement ssl so we can have users put credit card details in.
Before purchasing the certificate, should I make the subdomain for the secure area a different one than that the normal site is on?

Eg, the site is on

http://www.wildfiretextbooks.com.au/

should I make the secure area

https://secure.wildfiretextbooks.com.au/

?

Thanks

you don’t need to do that.

make your server listen on 443 port, specify ssl key and cert path, set System > Config > Web > Secure Url to https://yourdomain.com

as for nginx:

server {
        listen your_ip
:443;
        
ssl on;
        
server_name yourdomain.com;
        
root magento_root;

        
ssl_certificate cert.crt;
        
ssl_certificate_key key.key;

I wanted to test this out so before getting a certificate by making another subdomian and making it point to same location on my local wamp server.

I called the subdomain http://localsecure.wildfiretextbooks.com.au/ and entered that in the core_config_data web/secure/base_url

When I go to any of the pages - even the log in, they go to what I have defined as my non-secure
web/unsecure/base_url http://local.wildfiretextbooks.com.au/

Is magento being smart in that is knows that my dummy http://localsecure.wildfiretextbooks.com.au/ is not https and so it is going to the unsecure page, or do I have some sort of error?

I got the certificate with the www prefix and it all works fine. Magento knows when to go secure so all resolved. Thanks
