    Default Enabling SSL Causes Blank Page

    ZenCart Version v1.5.5e
    This version was upgraded using official upgrade procedure (I think)
    When I try to enable SSL (by changing the configure.php as in the code below) the page goes blank.
    When I try to change the configure.php back to the way that it was- everything is still blank.
    (I take out https: and clear cache) I have to restore a backup file of configure.php to get it working again.
    The SSL appears to be in place as when I go directly to the page loads with https successfully.
    When I change the configure.php as below, the site url shows as https: but is blank.
    Currently I have https server as follows with ssl set to false:
    define('HTTPS_SERVER', '');
    That is not the proper route for my shared ssl BTW. Its just what is there now. SSL was purchased for this domain with hosting company.
     // Define the webserver and path parameters
      // HTTP_SERVER is your Main webserver: eg,
      // HTTPS_SERVER is your Secure webserver: eg,
      define('HTTP_SERVER', '');
      define('HTTPS_SERVER', 'https:www//’);
      // Use secure webserver for checkout procedure?
      define('ENABLE_SSL', ‘true’);
    // NOTE: be sure to leave the trailing '/' at the end of these lines if you make changes!
    // * DIR_WS_* = Webserver directories (virtual/URL)
      // these paths are relative to top of your webspace ... (ie: under the public_html or httpdocs folder)
      define('DIR_WS_CATALOG', '/');
      define('DIR_WS_HTTPS_CATALOG', '/');
      define('DIR_WS_IMAGES', 'images/');
      define('DIR_WS_INCLUDES', 'includes/');
      define('DIR_WS_FUNCTIONS', DIR_WS_INCLUDES . 'functions/');
      define('DIR_WS_CLASSES', DIR_WS_INCLUDES . 'classes/');
      define('DIR_WS_MODULES', DIR_WS_INCLUDES . 'modules/');
      define('DIR_WS_LANGUAGES', DIR_WS_INCLUDES . 'languages/');
      define('DIR_WS_DOWNLOAD_PUBLIC', DIR_WS_CATALOG . 'pub/');
      define('DIR_WS_TEMPLATES', DIR_WS_INCLUDES . 'templates/');
      define('DIR_WS_PHPBB', '/');

    You need to change your HTTPS_SERVER definition to
    define('HTTPS_SERVER', '’);

    Also the closing single quotation mark should be a single quotation of the same variety as the opening one in that path. Note how it looks like a backwards single quote?

    Be sure when editing the file that a plain text editor is being used and that the quote looks like: ' instead of ’

    easiest/best is that when a functional configure.php file is used, that the single quote(s) are not removed when making the edit(s).
