[ Zen Cart ] SSL Pages unreachable ...

Postby testuser » Fri Jun 27, 2008 5:18 pm

Hello,

Using Zen Cart SEO mod and can't seem to get to any secure pages on the catalog side.

FireFox gives the error:
Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.

This usually happen when web server is configured incorrectly (SERVER_PORT variable is wrong).

Can you go into any detail on how Magic uses that? It works fine without the mod, but when enabled the error occurs.

Any ideas on how to solve it?

What is your Zen Cart URL?

I need to see phpinfo() output or at least some HTTP headers in order to provide appropriate work around.

Issue you are experiencing is caused by incorrect value of HTTP_HOST variable when HTTPS is used. Please place following code before installation line:

Code: Select all

$_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'] = substr($_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'], 0, strpos($_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'], ':') - strlen($_SERVER['HTTP_HOST']));

Ok that got the secure pages functioning properly, but now the non-secure pages throw the same error as before.

What's causing that?

Then use this code (I am not sure it will work - phpinfo is no longer available):

Code: Select all

if($_SERVER['HTTPS'] == 'on') $_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'] = substr($_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'], 0, strpos($_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'], ':') - strlen($_SERVER['HTTP_HOST']));

Problem solved.

Is this a host configuration error that causes this to happen, or a combination of the script and the server settings?

It is host configuration error (HTTP_HOST variable have to match http host in URL).
