how to test cart is working on magento

Hi all
I have inherited an old magento site.  ver. 1.7.0.2

My client has said: "A customer assembled his purchases into the check-out but it wouldn't let him get any further."

So now i need to test the shopping cart. as am relatively new to magento i thought it be best to ask if there is a quick method of testing the cart system without having to actually purchase something?

The site was moved to our hosting a few months ago and the only changes i made:
installed new ssl cert / forced https on all pages could this be a reason? how can i test the cart and fix it?

any information would be helpfull thanks.

how can i test the cart
Put a simple, low-cost item or two into the site and buy them yourself to see the client-side behavior.  I've learned more about PayPal by spending a dollar or two than I could learn in a week of guessing!

ok i just turned off the forced SSL so it should only use SSL on the payment page.

i added a test product and added it to the cart.

i noticed that it only happens when clicking register rather than clicking guest checkout.
When i fill in the billing information and click the continue button it will reload the page and take you back to the first step.

i noticed that an error shows in console after clicking the continue button:

error console
not sure what to do now.

This is the test product:

Perhaps check if your site passes the minimum system requirements.
There is a script to test if all necessary php modules are installed for example.

Upload to your server via FTP and run:
