Paypal IPN 1.1 setup question


Recommended Posts

This process is rather confusing, maybe because I have never worked with SSL's or cert key's before, but I have two files (cert_key.pem and paypal_cert.pem). Where do these go, and what goes in the box:


PayPals Public Certificate

The location of the PayPal Public Certificate for encrypting the data.


I think I have everything setup. I have a cert ID, through uploading cert_key.pem, I've downloaded the WSDL files(but have no idea where to put them), and am trying to fill out the Options form for the IPN.


Are my public cert and Paypals public cert the same thing? Where would I get a certificate for testing?

after looking over some other instructions at Paypal, it appears that I might be closer than I thought. It looks as though I have everything in order, I just have to get the locations of the files correct. Is there a specific place to put them? Do you use a relative address, full URL address, or server location address?
