What should the form of the Secure Base Path look like? Magenta is not showing the checkout page. I’m using hostgator.com and a shared SSL.
In my first installation, I didn’t put the trailing “/” at the end of my “Secure Base Path” and magenta tried to call up a page name that was merging into my base path. So I reinstalled adding the “/” this time at the END of ~lfi/.
During my second installation at the /install/wizard/config/ “page” where it asks for SSL info, I put:
Secure Host: gator136.hostgator.com
Secure Base Path: ~lfi/
(My web host says my SSL path is: secure136.hostgator.com/~lfi/)
However, installing it this way I get this URL when I try to check out:
It misses the “/” AND the “~”
I get no errors when I click Continue however it doesn’t continue to the next step unless I checkbox of “Skip URL validation”.
But then if I do, I get the wierd URL above.
Anything else I try I get an error message and it shows strange URL’s like ...
and says “Url “https://secure136.hostgator.com:443/~lfi/” is not valid”
Now why is it putting 443 in the SSL URL path?
INSTEAD of the correct SSL path ...
What am I doing wrong or is this a bug?
It seems like if I put ...
Secure Host: secure136.hostgator.com
Secure Base Path: /~lfi/
... that it should work.
I tried putting the “/” at the end of secure136.hostgator.com/ too instead of at the beginning of ~lfi/ but that didn’t work either without it reporting it didn’t recognize the URL.
I went ahead and ignored validation so the url shows up correctly. HOWEVER, it’s not finding the pages. For example: When I checkout, it takes me to the URL ...
But I get ...
“ERROR 404 - PAGE NOT FOUND
Oops! Looks like the page you’re looking for was moved or never existed.
Make sure you typed the correct URL or followed a valid link.”
When I ask my web host what’s wrong, they look at me like I’m nuts as they’re asking me where are those directories it’s calling for. I tell them they are dynamic directories (isn’t that right?)
I hope I can get this resolved as this looks like a very promising shopping cart. Undoubtedly, installation should not be this problematic.
PS: I’m getting good at deleting the local.xml file to try to reconfigure over and over, anyway. lol.
