Problem with SSL hosting ASP
Posted on 2001-09-08
I have a site hosted with Fasthosts. I run ASP on this domain. I have trialed a shopping basket on it, it all works fine, but has no security for Credit cards. I have now purchased off them a SSL facility. I can upload and read straight html here, but I want to store data (credit card info.).
My questions are as follows;
Should I store the data store in the ssl area, as there is an area within the normal site whick is secure, it's the passing of information thet needs the ssl's?
I cannot get the pages with thr SSL to read a database either within the SSL or within the standard site. Within the set up of the SSL's there is an ODBC setup function. The helpless file states:
"This screen lets you add and modify ODBC data sources for the domain. It is simply a case of specifying what type of data source you require and entering the correct path for the file. Please note that you need to specify the data source full path and filename. For example: DSN name = Test. Database path = domain.co.uk\private\test.mdb"
I can resolve the end part of the full path ie I can replace domain with my domain and test with the database name, but any idea if I should also add "DSN name = Test. Database path = " and which bits are variables?
I know these are questions for the ISP, but I've had no joy there!
