I recently obtained an SSL through godaddy and wanted to switch from http to https. I am currently running version 4.2.4 cs cart and followed the instructions on their website by checking the checkboxes in the security page, however I was unable to locate the htaccess file. My knowledge is very limited in this field and my developer has since left the business so I was left high and dry. 

 

My backend/admin panel is showing https;//... and also says 'Secure' next to the https.

 

The front end of my store is showing https://... as well, but does not say 'Secure' before the https.

 

Where do I go from here?

At first check source code of your home page. Most possibly it contains http links to 3rd party resources (e.g. links to social networks, partners, etc)

This URLs

needs to be HTTPS. You can download the images to your media/image folder and use relative paths to your CS-Cart root like this:

<img src="../images/dwf474.png" alt="" />

or whatever the image path is within the CS-Cart installation.

when you view source at the moment on your homepage in your sig, it shows 149 links that are http:// these should be https:// so I assume you have not got the secure site turned on still.

 

When you turn it on do view source again and search out all links with only http:// and change them to https:// in admin one by one.

 

IF the source of them is local, such as images hosted on your server then you do now need the full link, just /images/path to your image.jpg

 

If the source is pointing to an external website then you will need to use the https:// full path

...the full HTTPS path. So if e.g. an external image has http in his path, then you will get still the "site insecure" warning in the web browser.

For other browsers, the same applies.
