yeah, rewrite base line is disabled.

Ok EDIT ###

###SOLVED###

Right, so i figured it.

If you get a 404 on checkout with Shared SSL enabled and mod_rewrite on. Then you need to do this

Secure_Base_Url needs to be your shared SSL address

https://yousharedSSL.com/

then in the Secure_Base_Url_Link

needs to be https://yoursharedSSL.com/index.php/

This will get your URL’s all working with mod_rewrite enabled for those clean urls and still get you to your checkout page without 404’ing.

Hi,

great solution, elfling. And, I have posted another solution here : http://www.magentocommerce.com/boards/viewthread/4320/P30/

Yours, by forcing index.php after the SSL root is kinda like disabling URL Rewrite, as far as it behaves on our server.

On the other hand, we wanted to keep our URLs ultra clean with no “index.php” stuff. Our solution is a bit more complicated to setup as opposed to yours (duh! wink) but it doesn’t add anything to our secure URL.

Hope yours and our solution help people out there.
Cheers!

Thanks CrutialWebHost.
After doing all the steps above your solution worked for me

base link url should look like this; {{secure_base_url}} —These are dynamic elements and shouldnt be replaced with hard coded values.

I had a slash after {{secure_base_url}} /
That is what the instructions say to do but I gather that is only when a person hardcoded in their domain.
