The e-commerce.

What lines should you change for the production server?


Recommended Posts

Have been upgraded to USPS production server but continue to get the error. I have seen in the forums that the URL that might work is: production.shippingapis.com/shippingapi.dll but what line(s) do you change in the following code?


$http = new httpClient();

if ($http->Connect('production.shippingapis.com', 80)) {

$http->addHeader('Host', 'production.shippingapis.com');

$http->addHeader('User-Agent', 'osCommerce');

$http->addHeader('Connection', 'Close');


if ($http->Get('production.shippingapis.com/shippingapi.dll?' . $request)) $body = $http->getBody();


Also the instructions from USPS read:

1. The Production Server URL is: http://production.shippingapis.com. For APIs calling the secure server, the URL is https://secure.shippingapis.com.


Under what circumstance should you use the secure URL and where do I need to change http to https in the code above (if needed at all)? FYI the checkout process and beyond on my site is secure. Thank-you.

I am...I'm using the original module but get error so thought I had to update one of the lines in the code as above. So if using the original I shouldn't have to do anything? FYI, in the control panel I've set Configuration->Shipping/Packaging with the 5 digit zip and other info.

No manual update is required. There is a radio button that you can select either the sandbox or the production server. Just choose the live server if you are ready to go live.
