The e-commerce.

adding a proxy for cURL on godaddy servers for paypal


Recommended Posts

Can someone tell me how I can add a proxy for use with oscommerce and paypal express.


Godaddy does not support cURL, and my site is hanging on checkout_conformation, or when i try to access a direct pay using the paypal link on my site.



I'm told I need to install the proxy into the payment module but dont have an idea where to being.


I'm guessing this is my problem here:



link I said my site is hanging with people try to pay.


I'm not using SSL (although I do have a certificate), and configure/php has SSL as false as it should.

I don't know about the Palpal Express, but in the Paypal IPN contribution...


In ext/modules/payments/paypal/ipn.php near line 68 you will find the following code:

	curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, 'https://' . $server . '/cgi-bin/webscr');
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POST, true);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, $parameters);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HEADER, false);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_TIMEOUT, 30);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER, false);

Right after this code, add:

	// GoDaddy hosted website proxy patch
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_PROXY, "http://proxy.shr.secureserver.net:3128");
// End of GoDaddy proxy patch

You should be able to find the similar logic in the Express code
