Which Paypal service do I use?

14 years 1 month ago #3106 by StevieC
vodes.html.php wasn't picking up $vode_config until I put 'global $vode_config;' at the top of the file before 'class HTML_vodes {'.

Strange that this is presumably working with Joomla 1.0?

So I got it to go to paypal.sandbox this time, paid and returned. Vodes said everything had gone okay but my total vodes for some reason remained at zero (?)

Looking into it.

btw. I'm not sure if it's mentioned anywhere already but log.txt has to be set 'writeable' before anything is written to it.

It looks as though when getting back from Paypal this is called:
$fp = fsockopen (' www.sandbox.paypal.com ', 80, $errno, $errstr, 30);

but when $fp is tested:
if (!$fp)
{
// HTTP ERROR
} else ......

it's failing. If I change the call to:
  $fp = fsockopen (' www.paypal.com ',  80, $errno, $errstr, 30);

then the $fp is okay but it doesn'r get a 'VERIFIED' later on.


Any ideas?

Found it!

Did a search and someone else had changed their fsockopen call to:
$fp = fsockopen ('ssl://www.sandbox.paypal.com', 443, $errno, $errstr, 30);

I tried that and it worked.
Once again, I'm confused as to how it is (was?) working with Joomla 1.0. These don't appear to be Joomla 1.0/1.5 incompatibility issues.

global issue is definately 1.5 issue.
www.sandbox.paypal.com used to work fine, but as I said, it might be some changes by PayPal or something. Good you found the solution.
