Hi,

First of all sorry if this is posted in the wrong place :rolleyes:

I have a shopping cart i have coded and i'm just about to put a SSL connection (https://) the question i would like to ask is:

Will i have to recode my shopping cart to make it work with the SSL (in order to make it secure and encrypted) or will all the data that people enter(credit card, address etc) automatically be secure and encrypted?

Many thanks
Joe

You won't have to recode your site - internet server will do all the encryption/decryption automatically.

If the http and https web pages are within the same web space (you can reach the same exact web page through both http and https) you need to have the code in your secure only web pages check that the connection is through https. If not, it would be possible for someone to enter a http address and get to a page that accepted CC input but was not occurring through https.

For the above case, typically just automatically redirect the page to the https address.

The only problem you may get is if you access images via HTTP from an HTTPS page, this will give your visitors the "Do you wish to display non-secure content"
