    Default SSL Enabled but product pages not under https

    Hi
    I am new to this forum and also to ZC. I just followed the instructions for installing SSL on my server and enabling in ZC. I then had a problem with logging into Admin but I think I fixed that. Now, when I browse to my site at https://www.store.mydomain.com any product I select is not under the https:// rather the https://. Is that normal or do I have to change anything else?
    Thanks for the help!

    That's normal.

    Why do you want your products under SSL?

    Thanks. Just wasn't sure if I had set it up correctly. I'm also using only Paypal to process CCs so i guess from what I read I really don't even need the SSL anyway.

    Whether or not you collect CC data on your site is somewhat irrelevant. You *do* collect some sort of customer information, right? Thus you should be using SSL for customer-sensitive data.
    And, if you have SSL properly configured on your Zen Cart site, it takes care of protecting sensitive pages automatically.

    It seems you've chosen to use a self-signed SSL certificate ... which, while it will protect customer data, may prove confusing to customers. Many customers have their browsers set to show SSL warnings when self-signed certificates are used.
    You should get an SSL certificate from a trusted authority ... which means you'll have to pay for it.

    But your general Zen Cart setup for SSL appears to be working.

    I did buy the SSL from godaddy (starfieldtech is the vendor). I didn't really mean for it to be selfsigned and quite frankly would not have known the difference except that I didn't get any prompts or notices that it is a self-signed cert. Should I have gotten something different and if so, is it worth it now to revoke the ssl and purchase and install a different one?

    There are a few issues that all need to be dealt with.

    You need a Dedicated IP address.
    - current IP for your Domain name resolves to another Domain name

    Choose your SSL Cert name carefully.
    - might be better to get a Cert in the name of 'clvideo.com' so you can use it anywhere within your site
    - not sure why you are using a Subdomain but if you do use one, you do not need 'www'
    - a URL of shop.clvideo.com will also work as clvideo.com/shop

    Get your Hoster to help with the Cert install.
    - GoDaddy requires the use of a file (bundle.crt) that must be manually installed on the Server
    The learning is in the doing.
