naps1saps Posted September 16, 2008 Share Posted September 16, 2008 (edited) Hello Greg! So I have 4.1.4 installed, and as of Sept. 5, I am having a problem where when a logged in customer attempts to Checkout, the USPS module seems to be hanging. When I say that I mean when they go to the Shipping page, it just loads and loads and loads and loads (taking about 5 minutes before seemingly timing out), and then returns this error: An error occured with the USPS shipping calculations. If you prefer to use USPS as your shipping method, please contact the store owner. Now, when I replace the location of the database (ex: 'production.shippingapis.com') with something such as 'wefewfewfwefew' the page loads as fast as before the problem (very fast), but with the same error (obviously): An error occured with the USPS shipping calculations. If you prefer to use USPS as your shipping method, please contact the store owner. So I'm wondering why it's hanging when I'm trying to get to the real prod server? Any ideas? Thanks so much! Is this an intermittent problem or does this happen every time? If intermittent and if you click refresh, does the page load immediately? If yes, this could be a problem with either your server's network connection or your host's network connection. I had a simmilar problem but found that my router was reseting itself every 20 minutes causing intermittent havoc. I also run into the problem when loading the page too many times. If this is happening every time, check in usps.php and comment out the email forward code. I can't remember if v4.1.4 was commented out by default. If this doesn't work, try using v4.2.x and replace your language file too. It could be that your server is trying to connect to localhost.com and is having a conflict of some kind, but I doubt it. It seems like I've had this problem before but I can't remember what I was doing to cause it. Edited September 16, 2008 by naps1saps Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
