Just installed osCommerce.  I want to also install an SSL certificate, but am a little confused by the instructions in the osCommerce documentation.  Does anyone know how to get osCommerce to work with the SSL that is installed on the server?

    osCommerce by itself doesn't need any configuration for whatever SSL certificate you want to use. SSL encrypts the transmission and is handled by the server and the client, the software in between does not interfere.

    That being said, perhaps you are referring to the installation location that needs to be changed from http:// to https:// (note the extra 's'). Where is this documentation you are referring to?
