Browser Tries to Download express.php


Recommended Posts

Long time lurker, first time poster.


I installed the Paypal Express module, but whenever I click the Paypal checkout link, Firefox will say "waiting for dreambelievepursue.com..." for about a minute then a dialog box will pop up asking me to download express.php.


No other file does this.


I've reuploaded express.php in ASCII mode. And I've made sure that every php file is readable and executable.


I'm using the latest osc and I do have a paypal business acct with all the corrent information.


www.dreambelievepursue.com/shop for anyone who wants to give it a go.


Any help?

Found the problem after searching around a bit. GoDaddy uses a proxy for cURL. So, in /<catalog>/includes/modules/payment/paypal_express.php around line 218 replace


$curl = curl_init($server['scheme'] . '://' . $server['host'] . $server['path'] . (isset($server['query']) ? '?' . $server['query'] : ''));
curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_PORT, $server['port']);
curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_HEADER, 0);
curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER, 0);
curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1);
curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_FORBID_REUSE, 1);
curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_FRESH_CONNECT, 1);
curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_POST, 1);
curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, $parameters);




if (isset($_GET["site"])) { $URL = $_GET["site"]; }
$ch = curl_init();
echo "URL = $URL <br>n";
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_VERBOSE, 1);
curl_setopt ($ch, CURLOPT_PROXY,"http://proxy.shr.secureserver.net:3128");
curl_setopt ($ch, CURLOPT_URL, $URL);
curl_setopt ($ch, CURLOPT_TIMEOUT, 120);
$result = curl_exec ($ch);
echo "<hr><br>n";
echo 'Errors: ' . curl_errno($ch) . ' ' . curl_error($ch) . '<br><br>';
echo "<hr><br>n";
curl_close ($ch);
print "result - $result";
echo "<hr><br>n";
