A very good client of mine is running a Magento Install version listed as above. I have problems with the site that need addressing. Please read carefully and respond ONLY if you are a conversant Magento/PHP developer and you KNOW the fix for this issue.
1. every now and then my client has an end user that upon clicking the PROCEED TO CHECKOUT button their cart empties and they are returned to the home page. I have been calling each individual end user and trying to establish a pattern or trend to no avail.
I thought initially it would have been a cookie issue, but this is not the case after checking server time VS Magento time possible UTC GMT conflict causing an invalidated cookie and nothing has worked, then suddenly a light bulb went off as it does, this is always happening when the site switches from unsecure to secure, I then tracked back through the end user details and they are running on proxy so as soon as it switches it invalidates the encryption and bam all products lost.
I need a solution to this problem, Site needs to run checkout and admin on secure as it does now, but need to solve this dumped cart issue. I have read through Magento Commerce forums and have not yet found a solution I NEED A SOLUTION fast and IT MUST WORK.
I believe some kind of workaround in the HTAccess file could be the solution, However the site also runs Mcafee secure so it is tested daily for vulnerability so any fix has to retain security.
I need someone who can PM me and convince me they can fix this, maybe you have come across this before? and can tell me that you have experience with this to boost my confidence that you can fix it.
I also know this should not cost much to fix it should from what I have deduced be a simple code fix somewhere so no price hiking or you wont get a look in.
Please send me your best price and details of how and why your the guy/girl/company to fix this.
