The e-commerce.

Authorize.net - the definitive thread (I hope)


Recommended Posts



I've been going through some of these threads on getting Authorize.net working and the more I read them, the more confused they make me as some of them are dated back in September and there's a lot that has changed since then. Some of the steps relating to Authorize.net's control panel are telling me to go to options on Authorize.net that aren't even there or have been moved. I could really use an updated bit of help and I'm sure many people could as well.


I have osCommerce February 7th snapshot. I am trying to get it to work with Authorize.net. I am using the default Authorize.net module that came with osCommerce. I do not know if my ISP has cURL installed and I do not have a shell account on my ISP. Assuming that I do have cURL installed on the server and assuming someone has used a recent osCommerce snapshot, I would REALLY appreciate if you could answer the following questions:


1. If I have February 7, 2003 snapshot of osCommerce 2.2, do I need to install any user-submitted Authorize.net modules or will the one that comes with osCommerce suffice?


2. Do I still need cURL installed if I use the default osCommerce Authorize.net module? (Not a user-submitted Authorize.net module)


3. Do I need to make any modifications to any of the .php files in osCommerce to get it to work with it's default Authorize.net module?


4. What options do I need to change on Authorize.net's control panel? (Not the one in osCommerce, the one at Authorize.net's web site.)


If anyone can help with this, you would become a national hero (or heroine) to the world's osCommerce community and you would make one person very happy. ;)


Thanks in advance,

Ok, I went ahead and installed Bao Nguyen's Authorize.net module. Soon after, I'm getting the following errors:


Warning: main(/home/myusername/wwwroot/myrealwebsitesname.com/catalog/includes/languages/english/modules/payment/authorizenet_direct.php) [function.main]: failed to create stream: No such file or directory in /home/myusername/wwwroot/myrealwebsitesname.com/catalog/admin/modules.php on line 120


Warning: main() [function.main]: Failed opening '/home/myusername/wwwroot/myrealwebsitesname.com/catalog/includes/languages/english/modules/payment/authorizenet_direct.php' for inclusion (include_path='.:/usr/lib/php') in /home/myusername/wwwroot/myrealwebsitesname.com/catalog/admin/modules.php on line 120


Guess what? Even after backing up the files I was told to back up and putting them back onto the server, I still get the above error.


Now my working (sans Authorize.net payment) osCommerce store no longer works!


Can anyone shed some light into why I'm getting the above error and why it's not going away when I copied my backed up files back onto the server?
