Currency update failing

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

Both the default and backup currency update services (oanda.com and xe.com) have started failing:

 

Warning: file(http://www.oanda.com/convert/fxdaily?value=1&redirected=1&exch=USD&format=CSV&dest=Get+Table&sel_list=NZD) [function.file]: failed to open stream: HTTP request failed! HTTP/1.0 503 Service Unavailable in/home/admin/includes/functions/localization.php on line 14

 

Warning: implode() [function.implode]: Invalid arguments passed in /home/admin/includes/functions/localization.php on line 18

 

Warning: file(http://www.oanda.com/convert/fxdaily?value=1&redirected=1&exch=EUR&format=CSV&dest=Get+Table&sel_list=NZD) [function.file]: failed to open stream: HTTP request failed! HTTP/1.0 503 Service Unavailable in/home/admin/includes/functions/localization.php on line 14

 

Anyone else getting this and are there alternatives?

 

Thanks

I have the same problem with this...

 

Error: The exchange rate for US Dollar (USD) was not updated via xe. Is it a valid currency code?

 

Any ideas on how to resolve this?

 

Thanks!

Working fine here. I've set mine up to update every hour via CRON using oanda.com/xe.com.

 

I've noticed that multiple currencies will fail throughout the day, however ultimately they will succeed and update properly. So this is normal behavior for the free currency exchange rate services.

 

Peace,

Chris

I suggest you install my Auto Update Currencies: http://addons.oscommerce.com/info/6419. It tracks when the currencies were last updated and continually tries to update them until they get updated.
