Configuring Shared SSL for Zen Cart

We can use the free Shared SSL to configure a Zen Cart shop.

Note : If you configure zencart with a shared SSL, it will not work with the URL rewrite modules such as SEO-friendly URLs. If you wish to use a URL rewrite module, then you have to go with the Full SSL Bundle.

 

configure.php file examples

Replace the following place holders:
 $DOMAIN = Your domain name in format www.example.com
 $SERVER = The server name as per your welcome email prefaced by the tilde symbol
 $USER = Your cPanel username
 $DBUSER = Your Database User Name
 $DBPASSWORD = Your Database Password
 $DATABASE = Your Database Name

For SSL Certificate, if you have a Full SSL Certificate for your site, set to TRUE, otherwise leave set to FALSE.
