[Zen Cart] Page not found when navigating to ssl page

Postby zugogo » Wed Feb 06, 2008 3:17 pm

I just bought Magic Seo Urls and followed the installation directions to the t. Upon first navigation, everything went great, url displayed non-dynamic urls. However, when I clicked login, I get a 404 not found error. After some experimentation, I figured out that any page that is utilizing Magic SEO URLs and is being sent through ssl (https) it shows the 404 error.
I also tried leaving the .htacces file writable while accessing secure pages. Did not work.
I did verify the character encoding was correct on both non secure and secure pages.

You can not see it on the site right now because I disable it. It's a live site.

Please advise, thank you

It is caused by missing mod_rewrite in Apache under HTTPS. mod_rewrite needs to be installed on both HTTP and HTTPS web servers. Please ask your web host to do so.
Temporal solution is to open includes/configure.php and change following line:

Code: Select all

define('ENABLE_SSL', 'true');

To:

Code: Select all

define('ENABLE_SSL', 'false');

It turns out that the addon "SID redirect" is incompatible with MSU. Everything worked great after I uninstalled it.

Great! Btw Sessions are handled by MSU - by uninstalling SID Redirect add-on you are not loosing any feature (quoting from Feature page):

Sessions IDs (zenid parameter in URLs) are removed when one of 120 worldwide webcrawlers is detected. Also, if the webcrawler finds backward link with Session ID, it is redirected to the URL without this parameter.
