Looking for a paypal IPN for yahoo web hosting


Recommended Posts

Having spent days here searching these forums and trying numerous payment module contributions,

I still cannot find any solution that actually works. Here's my scenario:


I'm on yahoo web hosting. Supposedly there is openssl and curl support enabled:

CURL support enabled

CURL Information libcurl/7.12.0 OpenSSL/0.9.6g zlib/1.1.3

OpenSSL support enabled

OpenSSL Version OpenSSL 0.9.6b 9 Jul 2001


I'm using osCommerce 2.2 Milestone 2 and trying to find a paypal ipn solution. I've got a premier paypal

business account, the shared paypal certificate, and bot a test and live api certificates. Yahoo doesn't allow

direct https ssl access, but if I put files under an /ssl folder, it will redirect using the shared yahoo certificate.


Not knowing exactly which files are needed under the ssl folder I mirrored the entire catalog. That was



Following other threads, it seemed that ssl wasn't needed if using an IPN.


My most recent attempt at a solution was using the Paypal Express Checkout IPN. It nearly works but isn't

the solution I need as it's only for paypal customers. I need an option for customers to use paypal or just

the paypal credit card processing. I would always get the error dump I've included below.


Now the most likely contribution as my solution seems to be osCommerce 2.2 Milestone 2 PayPal IPN

Payment Module v2.1. Except that I don't have my own public certificate. Nor, if I'm understanding all the

paypal info correctly, do I need one. I wasn't able to get this module to work at all, but

likely due to my misunderstanding the setup. Like I said, I do have the paypal shared certificate but where

do I get the "Your PayPal Public Certificate ID"? And, even I do find this, the setup for this module requires

the location of openssl. I can try to get a response from yahoo support, but I've a better chance of winning

the lottery! Slim vs none!


Is there a paypal ipn module that works without openssl?

Or, better phrased, what paypal ipn module do other sites on yahoo web hosting use? :huh:
