define('HTTP_SERVER', ''); // eg, http://localhost - should not be empty for productive servers 
define('HTTPS_SERVER', ''); // eg, https://localhost - should not be empty for productive servers 
define('ENABLE_SSL', true); // secure webserver for checkout procedure? 
define('HTTP_COOKIE_DOMAIN', ''); 
define('HTTPS_COOKIE_DOMAIN', ''); 
define('HTTP_COOKIE_PATH', '/catalog/'); 
define('HTTPS_COOKIE_PATH', '/catalog/');
define('DIR_WS_HTTP_CATALOG', '/catalog/');
