I found the solution to this issue from a thread on the forums. It means making a correction to the tep_redirect function in functions/general.php.

You need to add the DIR_WS_HTTPS_CATALOG constant into the url transformation part…

Before:

// Redirect to another page or site
function tep_redirect($url) {
$url = str_replace(‘&’, ‘&’, $url); //Ampersand fix
if ( (strstr($url, “\n”) != false) || (strstr($url, “\r”) != false) ) {
tep_redirect(tep_href_link(FILENAME_DEFAULT, ”, ‘NONSSL’, false));
}

if ( (ENABLE_SSL == true) && (getenv(‘HTTPS’) == ‘on’) ) { // We are loading an SSL page
if (substr($url, 0, strlen(HTTP_SERVER)) == HTTP_SERVER) { // NONSSL url
$url = HTTPS_SERVER . DIR_WS_HTTPS_CATALOG . substr($url, strlen(HTTP_SERVER)); // Change it to SSL
}
}

header(‘Location: ‘ . $url);

tep_exit();
}

After:

// Redirect to another page or site
function tep_redirect($url) {
$url = str_replace(‘&’, ‘&’, $url); //Ampersand fix
if ( (strstr($url, “\n”) != false) || (strstr($url, “\r”) != false) ) {
tep_redirect(tep_href_link(FILENAME_DEFAULT, ”, ‘NONSSL’, false));
}

if ( (ENABLE_SSL == true) && (getenv(‘HTTPS’) == ‘on’) ) { // We are loading an SSL page
if (substr($url, 0, strlen(HTTP_SERVER)) == HTTP_SERVER) { // NONSSL url
$url = HTTPS_SERVER . substr($url, strlen(HTTP_SERVER)); // Change it to SSL
}
}

header(‘Location: ‘ . $url);

tep_exit();
}

Note: I have modified the function from standard already to provide xhtml compliant pages. You can strip the ‘//Ampersand fix’ line.
