I assume that your secure server is at a different domain than your main
site. This is not supported by Interchange.
We have the following setting in catalog.cfg:
AlwaysSecure ord/checkout results login order change_password ord/basket
That means that the transition to the secure server occurs during the
order process, and the cart is not lost on the way to the checkout page.
In addition we have disabled the "buy now" button on the results.html
page, as it will not comform in any way that I have tried to rewrite it.
In other words any attempt to force a order through the secure process
results in either a bounce to the last page visited (its in the code)
or an endless loop for the web server if the next page "nothing" is
altered to something more specific.
Mike Heins tells us that all of our cleints should purchase a secure
certificate - then none of this would be nescessary, and checkout could
take place on the main site.
Although cheap certificates are now available from www.instantssl.com I
have discouraged my customers form paying out extra money during the
Also I was a bit concerned because each secure certificate requires
either an additional ip address or port 188.8.131.52:443,
I now realize that I may be building numerous servers to cater for tthe
demands of succesful stores, and hence the availability of ip addresses
may not be an issue,
I hope this was relevant to your query,
