Dear all,

The MySQL matter is a seprate issue which is probably a question of me finding the right combination of details. What I would much like to find is a fix for not being able to see the default categories, products, customers and the like in the admin area to remove them and add my own. Not sure if UTF-8, related to the version of MySQL, is causing the inability to do this but it is something my Host has picked up on. with Abantecart installed when I check the phpAdmin the UTF-8 unicode or charcset is listed there many times (I'm no expert though). I am quite willing to share admin login details by separate private email, to access Abantecart afterwhich I will change them.

Thanks.

Latest by my Host:-

"When I go to the categories page in the admin dashboard it is showing a blank list and inspecting the page and checking the console tab shows me the following error which could explain what you are seeing and chrome will not load any insecure content (http://) when you are on a page that loads with https:// so that could explain why this list is missing but I cannot for the life of me find where in the code these links are saved with this format, can you see if there are any similar reports of a problem like this with other abantecart users who might have a suggestion for a quick fix?"

Kind Regards,
Nick"

Me: I have also noticed that when I am on my admin login page that the address bar indicates https:// (padlocked) but the abantecart login states that "you are am trying to login in non-secure unsafe mode! Please switch to secure HTTPS to proceed"

The plot thickens!

I cannot make any sense of why it is saying that it is not using the secure links, in the admin dashboard in system > store settings it shows the saved addresses and shows that they are both using the https:// links and show securely but it seems like abantecart is still using the insecure links somewhere or at least thinks it is from the look of the warning on that login page.

Kind Regards,
Nick

Good find Nick,

I have posted your comments on the Abantecart Forum for replies.

May be important to pass on that I have also noticed that when I am on my admin login page that the address bar indicates https:// (padlocked) but above the the abantecart login boxes it states that "you are am trying to login in non-secure unsafe mode! Please switch to secure HTTPS to proceed" (See attached)

The plot thickens!

Hi, latest comment from the Host:-

"Testing the setup with a manual install and it gives me an error "undefined" after I enter all of the database details and it goes on to the next step but there are no errors generated in the domains error log or the servers apache error log so apart from that message on the screen saying that theres an error there are no actual signs of an error anywhere."

I found the answer this morning. Woke-up with a "light-bulb" moment as it were. Abantecart 1.3.3 does not like a secuity redirection through Cloudflare one bit! I was advised to do this when the website was hacked. The moral of the story is do not use Abantecart in conjunction with Cloudflare. It causes https issues that impacts on the browser being used and internal workings of the cart. This may also apply to other similar third party apps or tools.

Thanks to everyone that pitched in especially Basara.

Hello.
Cloudflare has many settings, configurations as well as beta features. You may want to add one by one or find someone who know how to setup it correctly

Yes, you are probaly right there! The free account version is fairly automatic on set-up but some tweaking may get round the recent problem. ZFast are my hosting company and do a lot to help my web development. Highyl recommended.
