Magento 1.x Security Patch Notice
For Magento Open Source 1.5 to 1.9, Magento is providing software security patches through June 2020 to ensure those sites remain secure and compliant. Visit our information page for more details about our software maintenance policy and other considerations for your business.
The URLs that are associated with your store were configured during the initial installation of Magento. The Web access options that were entered at that time specify both unsecure and secure URLs, and whether or not a security certificate is available.
Magento uses variables to define internal links in relation to the base URL, which makes it possible to move an entire store from one URL to another without having to update the internal links.
