Need Help with osCommerce_PayPal_IPN_v2.3.3


Recommended Posts

Hi oCommerce people!


I am having a problem trying to follow the documentation of the osCommerce_PayPal_IPN_v2.3.3 contribution. Specifically, the documentaton says

1.Copy the files in the directory structure set in the contribution download file to your osCommerce installation directory inc. the new /ext/ folder.

2.Make any changes you need to the language level files.

3.Go to the Administration Tool->Modules->Payment section at your osCommerce Administration Tool.

4.Install the PayPal IPN module and configure its parameters. Note: The module is disabled by default so configuration can occur during the operation of a live store."

It does not address two other files that are appearing in my paypal.ipn folder, one is ipn.php another is php.ini and I have a third file with the same name as the folder, paypal_ipn.php.


I am having trouble with my paypal testing that is probably related to these files. I do not get a confirmation email from paypal.


So the question is: What are these files and do they belong in the paypal_ipn folder?


Thanks for any help you can give

well, i think the php.ini files set the globals and such, so i would open in and compare it to your existing file, but DONT replace it - i wouldnt want a blackout on your site..


Otherwise, i cant really help you because i have not added this contribution//


The addons section for that contribution SHOULD give you a support thread, have you searched that support thread??


TO search a support thread, you just open the thread that you want to search and on the bottom right, there is a search box that will search for words JUST in that threa.d its a good tool

A great place for newbies to start
