An already established store ([login to view URL]) has recently had an SSL certificate installed on the server (Geotrust Quick SSL on a Startlogic server). The store runs OsCommerce 2.2 MS2.
I need someone who's going to tell me the modifications I need to make to the OsCommerce code so that secure Checkout is enabled when needed. I don't want the SSL enaged all the time as this will slow things down to much, I only want it to be used when a customer goes to use their card to pay for something, or sets up an account, just like any other secure on-line Checkout such as REI or Amazon, etc etc. It is essential that the padlock icon gets shown when secure Checkout is operating.
I really do need simple, very clear "John & Janet" instructions, OsC & PHP make my head spin. I've read the FAQs, Forums, Knowledge Base & although it makes sense when I look at the actual code I simply don't know where to begin. I will need someone who can say "Go to xyz.php...alter this bit of text so it says this..." etc etc, until all the steps are covered.
I also need the Geotrust SSL Cert logo integrated, so I'd need you to tell me how to do that so that it shows up on all pages, whether they're a secure page or not.
