OpenBay Pro

Redirecting to https (SSL)

If your store redirects all traffic to a secure connection (using HTTPS/SSL) then you will need to add an exclude rule to ensure that the OpenBay Pro URLs can still use the HTTP protocol.

Most users will redirect using the .htaccess file - if you use another method then you will need to speak with your web host or modify your current solution.

OpenBay Pro URLs that need to be HTTP are: index.php?route=ebay/openbay/*

The * means anything after is included - there are several methods/urls within this file.

A common solution is to add the following line: RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} !^route=ebay/openbay/*

The line should be added below the condition that checks if the request is over HTTP, this may look like: RewriteCond %{HTTPS} !=on but needs to be above the line that executes the redirect, that should start with: RewriteRule

A complete .htaccess rule to redirect to HTTPS but exclude the OpenBay Pro URLs may look like:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTPS} !=on
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} !^route=ebay/openbay/*
RewriteRule ^/?(.*) https://%{SERVER_NAME}/$1 [R=301,L]
