osCommerce_PayPal_IPN_v2.3.3 contribution Documentation


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

There are a few IPN contrib.


So You need to stick to anyone of those.


php.ini is something to set the folder environment for php if some changes are needed in environment.

The docs do not have any wrong thing so just look at what the document is stating and ignore the other things that come Your way.If it does not work then post more details.
