Using HTTPS

Anything required other than certificate?

My customer has a site that uses SSL for the checkout.
The script works okay using HTTP but when jumping to HTTPS the response is 404 not found.

Do I need to set up some kind of directive to point the HTTPS to the cgi-bin directory?

Or maybe the certificate is not installed correctly?

Sounds like the server is not configured properly.

Yeah,

I guess they are using a shared certificate and something need to be configured to route the request to the correct location.

Most likely the VirtualHost directive in Apache directs the https traffic to a different configuration than the normal HTTP traffic.

Most likely you'll need to do somethinglike:

https://url.ofyourhost.com/~youraccountname/cgi/checkout.cgi
.

If that doesn't work, ask the host how they recommend their users set up HTTPS sites.
