Images in SSL
How to make ssl work

 3:41 pm on Sep 29, 2006 (gmt 0)

I do not know nothing of ssl but now i've got a problem with Paypal, my logo have to be accessed in https. I do have a shared ssl and in the server root i've a folder named ssl. i did upload my logo there but a error page come up. I've been reading a litle about the ssl in the last 24 hours and still confuse. After generating a remote access key what comes next?

Can somebody be kind to explain me in a very simple way how can i make my logo image functional in https?

There's no coding difference on the SSL secured areas of any of my sites. It's just HTML. Maybe you have an error in your page source code. Try validating [validator.w3.org] your code and see whether there's any problem there.

Which web server do you run? Apache or IIS, or other?

When you use an image, or any other file for that matter, on a SSL page you have to call it with a secure path. Each host will configure this a bit differently, but it may look like:




Inside your account info in the HTTP area your secure path should be displayed. Just use this path and you shouldn't get any errors.

Example: https://host.com/username/logo.gif

Thank you all.

Since i have a shared SSL i only can access my files using my user name, Just like KEYPLYR mention.
I was trying to get there using https://my-domain.com/logo.gif and the way i should do it is [my-host.com...]
The first option only could work if i had my own certificade.
