Default How to upload a site and use shared SSL?

Hello everybody,

how do i use shared SSL?

I've created an e-commerce site and to customize payment pages, paypal askes for a header, stored on a secure server.

My site is hosted with Hostgator and they provide shared SSL. But how do I upload the site, using shared SSL?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Jonny

What you need to do is contact your hosting company, then they will tell you what to do. Basically it just involves them giving you the end of the address line which will place it in the shared server. Anyway it was really easy and is more of an issue with your hosting company...so just put in a support ticket and ask them to explain.

Sorry just reread your post. You probably will only put one file in the shared ssl folder (the header for the paypal page)...not your whole site as that would be too big...if you want to have a ssl certificate for your whole site, you need to buy one and then get it installed on your server. you can get them from your hosting company or buy one elsewhere and get your host to install it. ithink godaddy is the cheapest, but then you need to pay your host aswell..

Hicks thank you for you reply,

but since i have no experience with SSL at all, my question is, what steps are needed to set this up.
I have received from Hostgator something like this:

https://server.name.com/~cpaneluser/

But how do I need to upload the header which i have created in WPX2.
Does it just need to be uploaded in a normal way?
And how do I use that address line i have received from the host company?
Paypal just askes for the header image URL

Thanks in advance

Jonny

This is not a webplus issue so you would be much better off asking your host or their forum but this is what id (as i remember).


upload a png of the logo which you wish to use in the public folder of your website (do this on cpanel). make a note of what youve named the logo (i.e logo.png).

Does it just need to be uploaded in a normal way? no go to cpanel public and there should be a button to upload files.

then leave the cpanel swop your info on the address line theyve given you...so you have to put your server's name where it says sever/cpanel username after the~ then the name of your png file on the end.

then go into paypal and follow the steps and give the address line that youve just made. that should do it.

NOTE the address line theve given you is not clear as the sll address should be after the bit for server.

i would put in a support ticket and give your info and ask what the address would look like exactly.

let me know how you get on.

Hicks,

below the answer from HostGater to my question, I think it's helpful.
Thank you too for your help.

If you do not have a private SSL, then you can use the shared SSL that is available on all of our shared servers. The URL you would use for the SSL would be https://xxxxxxxxxxxx.com/~cpaneluser/

That would point to the public_html/ directory of your account, if you upload an image to that directory you would access it with: https://xxxxxxxxxxxxx.com/~cpaneluser/imagename.jpg (or whatever the name of the image actually is).

If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.
