SSL connection error

asked Jun 18, 2013 by lmarshall1995 (430 points)
Hi There,

Whenever I try to add anything to the checkout, the page comes up with this error message...

SSL connection error
Unable to make a secure connection to the server. This may be a problem with the server, or it may be requiring a client authentication certificate that you don't have.
Error 107 (net::ERR_SSL_PROTOCOL_ERROR): SSL protocol error.

I click back, and refresh, and the item has been added, but if I try to view my basket, the same error appears.

What do I do?

I have a feeling it is something to do with the page changing from http to https but I don't know how to sort it out.

I have all my products set up and now want my payment options set up. I would like Google Checkout, and Paypal. If they don't want to do this, they get the choice of selecting either cash or cheque.

I don't know how to do this, and don't want to spend any money as the site is for a charity.

I've got a temporary site set up and when it is complete, I am going to move it to a different domain.

Any help would be appreciated.

Hello Laurence Marshall.

It seems like you have enabled force https option on checkout.
You can change it easily. Open  Shopping -> Configuration ->Basics on admin panel. Then uncheck 'Force use HTTPS for checkout page' and click 'Save'.

Thank you.

Excellent, thank you. However, if I sign in as a member and try to buy a product, I cannot, as I am re-directed to the home page. How do I make a list of products in a CSV table (I have installed the plugin) and have that e-mailed to the address on the site. You've been a great help. :-)
