I stumbled upon Magento Commerce while looking for an alternative shopping cart for one of my clients, as they were unhappy with their current one (Miva Merchant). I must say, it is one hell of a job, and am very excited about putting it into production.
A little about my client’s setup, it is on shared Server, using php 4, mySQL and a shared SSL. i was able to get it installed using the php-cgi workaround and got everything setup, products, pricing, etc. Just have the design left.
My problem is that whenever I enable Secure URLs on the frontend, any links that require the SSL gives me the following page:
Whoops, it looks like you have an invalid PHP version.
Magento supports PHP 5.2.0 or newer. Find out how to install Magento using PHP-CGI as a work-around.
I tried the 1&1;fix posted many times on the forums by modifying my Magento .htaccess to the following:
#AddType x-mapp-php5 .php
AddHandler x-mapp-php5 .php
But that did not work. I know the SSL is OK, because it is working on the current cart. I would really like to have SSL enabled, as it adds a sense of confidence for customers when they see the little lock, even though all my payments are going through PayPal.
Any help would be appreciated… Thanks in advance.
