Hello Experts,
I have goDaddy shared hosting account, and I am trying to use openSSL (for OSCommerce shopping cart) there but my 'checkout_shipping.php' is giving me error.

I followed the instructions in, and asked GoDaddy staff about the problem, but they simply asked me to buy their SSL certificate.

Is it possible to use openSSL on shared godaddy hosting?
Can you help.

    They won't give you shell access. I don't believe there is any other way to do this...

    And they need to pay for the Super Bowl ads.

    I found a solution.

    I reinstalled oscommerce and this time I didn't set enable SSL to true.

    Thanks for your time.
