After I enabled SSL in the cPanel, my shop crashed. Then I went in opencart admin and enabled SSL in System->settings. But the site is still crashed? The store URL in System->Setting is set to http, but my hosting provider told me it needs to be set to https in opencart for the SSL to work? What do I need to do, to make SSL work?

1. Replace all URLs with SSL URLs in both config file (admin and catalog)
2. Rename .htaccess.txt to .htaccess and adjust the `RewriteBase` path if the store is running from a sub-directory e.g. /store

For a start change http:// to https:// everywhere in both config.php files.

One config.php file is located in the root directory and another in the admin directory admin/config.php

Please ignore the htaccess file. You don't need to change anything in it, I was mingling with SEO URL :)
