Going crazy trying to install Paypal IPN

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I have tried 4 times to install this damn contrib and am going crazy. Everytime I get it installed and go to my admin cp and click on Localization > Order Status, all that comes up is a blank page!

 

It have replaced all files one by one to fix this and think it's an error in the database_tables.php file, because when I replace it with the original backed up one, the page displays fine.

 

It's all because of this step of the installation:

 

admin/includes/database_tables.php

 

 

Add:

 

 

//begin PayPal_Shopping_Cart_IPN
 require_once(DIR_FS_CATALOG_MODULES . 'payment/paypal/database_tables.php');
//end PayPal_Shopping_Cart_IPN

 

Where in the script do I add this? Top, bottom, middle?

 

Thanks for your assistance and bringing me back to sanity!

(You are using paypal_shopping_cart_ipn right?)

 

Just try adding that code to the top of the file.

 

Also, in your admin/includes/configure.php can you check what DIR_FS_CATALOG_MODULES is defined as? If there is no '/' at the end of DIR_FS_CATALOG_MODULES then you would need to change the code in database_tables.php to:

 

//begin PayPal_Shopping_Cart_IPN
require_once(DIR_FS_CATALOG_MODULES . '/payment/paypal/database_tables.php');
//end PayPal_Shopping_Cart_IPN

 

I assume that you created all the tables in your database correctly and uploaded all the files into payment/paypal/ folder.

 

One more thing, you need to be careful when copy and pasting from html files...sometimes extra characters and spaces get inserted in the files.
