1). Alter the file references in the your file and web_store.cgi to be absolute instead of relative, i.e.


instead of ./Library

Every reference except the order script will be to files on your insecure domain.

2). In your setup file, set the variable

$sc_order_script_url = your secure server url. 

For example,

$sc_order_script_url =
