SSL for an order page with GF

    Hello,

    I've been looking all over for a solution to a shared SSL problem.

    I would like this form: http://astroadvisor.com/order-form/

    to be redirected to this: https://secure.deadlock.com/~astro/order-form/ -a 404 error.

    Saw this post: http://forum.gravityhelp.com/topic/securityssl-options#post-35
    but editing .htaccess doesn't help since order-form is not a static HTML page.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks.

  2. I'm not sure if WordPress can be used with a shared SSL certificate. I've read conflicting articles on it but from what i've seen you need to have your own SSL certificate because of how WordPress uses permalinks.

    You are getting a 404 because the permalink to that page is astroadvisor.com/order-form/ and not secure.deadlock.com/~astro/order-form/. The permalink processor is rejecting the url and returning a 404.

    Have you looked into getting your own SSL certificate?

    Ok. Will get an SSL going for the client. What are the next steps?

    Thank you!

  4. I believe you just need to get the site up and running with SSL on that domain and then you should be able to access any page via SSL. The form you want to be secure you would have to link to using https:// so it loads via SSL.

    Not sure if I want the entire domain to be https:// but maybe this link is what I am looking for: http://www.propellingsolutions.com/2009/12/securing-a-wordpress-page-with-https/

    This link with the solution by dmcleish might work too: http://wordpress.org/extend/ideas/topic/better-support-for-https/page/3

    Thanks!
