I had enabled shared SSL last week and encountered problems which I needed help with. Everyone jumped in but I could not get the config.php settings correct so that everything worked; site loaded slow, Contact US email 404 Errors, etc, etc. So I went with buying my own SSL Certificate this morning. Now my site is unavailable while it repopulates with the new DNS. So while I wait, my question now is…how will I access my admin backend? Basically, the address where I accessed will be different. My CS-Cart backend looks to my old address: www.siteground190.com/~wagarass and now it should be www.wagarassoc.com. Will this automatically change or will there be something for me :eek:to change?
ASSUMING your NEW SSL certificate was installed correctly (which i have no clue about, that is up to your host), all you should need to do is:
in your root folder of wagarassoc, you need to edit the config.php
to reflect the new https (secure) site
// Host and directory where cs-cart is installed on usual server
$cscart_http_host = 'www.wagarassoc.com';
$cscart_http_dir = '';
// Host and directory where cs-cart is installed on secure server
$cscart_https_host = 'www.wagarassoc.com';
$cscart_https_dir = '';
you also need to check off (on your main admin page) use ssl for checkout
That’s great news. After what I’ve gone through the last couple of days…I like simple. So, once this change is done I should be able to access the backend admin for the cart OK?

I am assuming here that you have the SSL option for secure login to your back-end ticked off on your company settings?
Yes, I did once I could access my site again.
