Echo Payment without OpenSSL or cURL


Guest

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if there is a way to use Echo Payment mod without actually having openSSL or cURL installed? My hosting company will not install either of these for me. Any help would be appreciated...

Are you sure ECHO supports payments over http instead of https?

Even if they do, I wouldn't recommend submitting creditcard numbers in cleartext.

 

If you have console access and are allowed to use .htaccess maybe you could use php as a cgi and compile in curl and openssl support?

Thanks. I'm going to try that. I do have a secure server and https access, but for some reason, I don't have openSSL in PHP. I am going to try to use it as CGI though. Will there be a problem, or anything I have to configure in OSC to make sure that it is using the CGI PHP and not the other?

You'll have to dig around the apache website to find out the necessary changes to the apache configuration using a .htaccess file.

 

In other words you'll have to configure apache, not osC, to use your own php.

I was given a solution, but I'm still trying to work through it. You can install PHP as CGI and use that version of PHP to process credit cards. That would be a version of PHP that you compile with whatever you need. My problem is that I'm not too farmiliar with Linux. I have a linux test server in my office, and my web host uses linux, but I can't compile on their server. So, I need to figure out how to compile on my server and then upload to my host's server.

 

Then, there's the .htaccess file. I think I have that figured out but I can't tell for sure until I get the PHP uploaded.

 

If you have any answers to these questions, let me know. Or if anybody out there want's to compile PHP with OpenSSL support for me and FTP or Email it, I'd greatly appreciate it.
