"Illegal Referrer Page, "

Posted by Marcel Emmen [info@emmenmode.nl] on at 04:58 PM
Hi there,

Sometimes visitors complain that if they want to checkout that they get:

Illegal Referrer Page, The referring page did not meet security requirements.

This is very strange because at the same day and i get other orders without the error. I have test my site directly after the visitor was complain and i don't get the error

Are there circumstance that you know that this can happen? And if so what can i do against this?

You can look at http://www.emmenmode.com

Thanks for the information

Hello Marcel,

If the message is occurring during the order process.... right after the customer sees the "Review Cart" page... then make sure that the URL that you have configured in configuration question #3 at the top of the "ushop.pl"
file (The $store_url setting) corresponds to the domain upon which your store HTML pages are located.

If this doesn't resolve the problem send us a support request at www.uburst.com/supportform.html .

Additionally, see if the customer who reported the problem can make it happen again.

Also Marcel, could customers technically be accessing your site from different URLS?... Such as:




If so, then the referral page validation check can be flagging whichever URL is not configured in configuration question #3 at the top of the script.

See my 8/17/2001 posting at this support forum entry on how to get around that problem:
