How To Test Protx Direct from Localhost? Need advice!


Recommended Posts

I have apache, php,mysql installed on my home PC on my home server "localhost".


and have installed oscommerce and have it running without any problems.


i have installed the protx direct contribution and enabled it, and the card options appear on the checkout page.


i put in the test card details into the form and i can get to the checkout confirmation page where it says you can submit your order.


However, when i click submit, nothing happens and it does not process and continue to protx's test server.

the page just gives a 404 error.


I do not have a protx account,

and in the Oscommerce admin section, for vendor name, i have put in "testvendor" and selected "Server IP Test" for transaction mode.


I am confused as to what is required to test on the protx server.


Do i have to register with Protx first and get a user name / id from them??

and do i require open SSL to simulate a SSL certificate?


I'm unsure, so if anybody can help.

I want to be able to test the payment process from my home server before putting it online.


please help

as above but if you're getting a 404 error then something's not installed properly (have you copied all the files including /protx_process.php ?)


You do not need a full account - if you start the application process (before having a merchant number) they will sort out a simulator account.
