Hi, I’m setting up Zen Cart for the first time. I’ve never set up a shop like this before and Php & SQL is new to me.
Anyway I installed Zen Cart to my site via the goodies section then started to follow the instructions on the email.
However when I get to page four I come across a part where it asks about https and the dreamhost instructions are:
“Enable SSL and Enable SSL in Admin Area:
Set these to yes ONLY IF YOU ALREADY HAVE https://www.(domain).com
configured and working!”
Hmm, I thought, and headed straight to my domain management scratching my head. I can add https, but I’ve to pay for a static IP and also for a certificate.
Since all I really want to do is configure Zen Cart to (hopefully) work with Paypal, do I really need to have https when Paypal will be the one handling all the secure stuff anyway?
