I am creating a typical online-store whereby most of my site is behind
http but i obviously need the payment part behind https. I have already
set up my secure hosting with Dreamhost but what i need help with is
actually getting it to work how i want it.
Currently the web directory that the secure server is set to be running
on is my.domain.com/MyRailsApp/public . This means that the whole of my
site is behind https (i think…).
I need to change this so that only the payment parts of my website are
behind https. Would this be as simple as changing it to
my.domain.com/MyRailsApp/app/views/secure and then just putting my
payment pages within this directory? The problem that i see is that
these payment pages would also be hosted under http as well so if
someone were to change the address they were viewing from
http://my.domain.com/secure/payment, they would still be able to view
the payment page unsecurely.
I may be totally going around this the wrong way so if someone could
help that would be a great help. Im quite new to web development and
this is the first time i have ever messed with things like secure
Thank you very much.
