There are several scenarios depending upon how you are set up for using
SSL transactions, and whether or not you are going to be using the standalone
application, or more likely, integrating the cart into your new or existing website. You may
have your own SSL Certificate or may be using a shared certificate supplied by
your host. If using your own, then the URL would be something like...
If using a shared certificate, the URL would likely be something like...
When we refer to the "Web Root" below, we mean the main folder/directory of your web site where your Home Page is located, usually index.htm, index.html or index.cfm.
NOTE: If you have a need to completely separate cf_ezcart from your main site, make a new folder for the the shopping cart folders. Then use that folder when we reference the "web root" below.
(cfform.js) when using CFFORM. They call this file using a relative path from the root,
The problem is, on a virtual host scenario, /CFIDE/scripts/cfform.js (note the leading /) will be pointing to a CFIDE folder inside of YOUR web root, which of course isn't there (DUH!). We've included a folder called CFIDE for CFMX. If you are using virtual hosting, rename this folder to CFIDE and upload it to your web root. Then we won't get File Not Found and other perplexing errors when loading CFFORM.
If you are running under shared SSL, with a URL such as http://secure.yourhost.com/yoursite/, the CFIDE will still be missing unless your host places it at the root of secure.yourhost.com. You may wish to ask your host about this issue. In some browsers there are no errors and in others there are. So just because you are not seeing errors does not mean no one else on your site is.
CAUTION! If you are installing cf_ezcart on your own personal server, and installing it in the main web root of the server, where the actual CFIDE folder is installed, be certain NOT to upload this folder, lest you overwrite the actual CFIDE. This is why we named it CFIDE for CFMX, so you don't overwrite the original by accident under this scenario.
NOTE: Do not rename the ezcart or ezcartsecure directories.
