ssl_error_bad_cert_domain
« on: March 01, 2013, 12:47:24 PM »
I've just turned on SSL on my website and I now get an error saying "ssl_error_bad_cert_domain" - I'm guessing this is because it's a shared SSL certificate rather than a dedicated one.

I've searched the forum but cant find any mention of how to configure AbanteCart with a shared SSL certificate - can anyone let me know how to do this please as I'm nearly ready to start trading now.

:)

This error is telling you that the certificate used by your site is actually issued for another site. This is not safe operation.

shared SSL should be OK if you configure this properly in your hosting. This what I found
http://support.hostgator.com/articles/hosting-tools/ssl-certificates/how-to-set-up-and-use-your-shared-ssl

Also very common error is when sub domain is accessed that is different from certificate domain. For example, you may have entered site with https://domain.com, but the certificate is for https://www.domain.com. In this case, if you access https://www.domain.com directly, you should not receive the warning

You're quite right, it's an issue related to my host and not AbanteCart itself.

To save time and get things resolved ASAP I raised the issue on this forum and with my host and I can now confirm that they have set the SSL certificate up for me and I have now turned it on in AbanteCart so I'm nearly ready to start trading!
