  3. Hi Hoheria, I used your mod to put descriptions on catagories, but and it generally works great, however, it is posting the products twice... all products whether or not I put a description. did I do something wrong?

    Official PayPal IPN Support Thread

    MULTIPLE CUSTOMER EMAILS using paypal ipn (previously posted elsewhere in error, sorry!) This only happens with paypal ipn and not with the other two payment options I have installed (Nochex and the cc module). It has happened since installation and regardless of encryption. The paypal transaction seems to run fine, payment taken and the order status is changed from "preparing (paypal ipn)" to "pending" on order completion but the customer invariably then gets 3 emails identical "order process" emails with different ids and from the osc mailer (not from paypal). Here are three recent headers: Received: (qmail 26064 invoked by uid 48); 30 Dec 2007 19:05:59 +0000 Message-ID: <20071230190556.26051.qmail@****dns6.co.uk> Received: (qmail 26228 invoked by uid 48); 30 Dec 2007 19:06:27 +0000 Message-ID: <20071230190627.26227.qmail@****dns6.co.uk> Received: (qmail 11343 invoked by uid 48); 30 Dec 2007 19:54:53 +0000 Message-ID: <20071230195452.11341.qmail@****dns6.co.uk> Always, two messages go out very quickly and then the third an hour or maybe more later. I just can't think where to look. Any ideas, please? Martin

  6. Having spent hours trying to get my head around the impenetrable openssl software for public and private key generation I stumbled across a fairly straightforward way to do this - for "windows" users at least. Here is what you need to do: Go to: http://www.slproweb.com/products/Win32OpenSSL.html download and install Win32 OpenSSL v0.9.8g Light this contains all you need to generate your private key and your public certificate. Install it in the openssl directory as prompted by the install procedure. using windows explorer go to openssl\bin and double click on the openssl.exe file - this will open a dos window and you are already in the correct directory to execute the dos commands. You can drag a shortcut to the desktop if you wish. From here type into the dos prompt: genrsa -out my-prvkey.pem 1024 then "return" this will generate your private key file with the name my-prvkey.pem in that same directory. To generate the public certificate is a little more complicated because the software needs to be told where to find the openssl.cnf file which it needs to run. Type in at the dos prompt: req -config c:\openssl\bin\openssl.cnf -new -key my-prvkey.pem -x509 -days 365 -out my-pubcert.pem carriage return this will generate a one year cert - you will be prompted to fill in various details as you proceed. If you want a 10 year cert type in at the dos prompt: req -config c:\openssl\bin\openssl.cnf -new -key my-prvkey.pem -x509 -days 3650 -out my-pubcert.pem carriage return go to your paypal account under profile you will see "encrypted payment settings" and upload your public certificate for storage by paypal. You will need the number for thre paypal ipn module. good luck with the rest of it. Martin
  7. in the config I've got my working temp directory set to: Working Directory /home/mywebsite/public_html/catalog/tmp/ I've been struggling for hours in a sea of unclear and confusing advice to set up encrypted payments using the option when ssl is not available. I've created my own certs etc (and I intend to post the idiots guide to doing this here soon because the opensll documentation is about as easy as navigating through a mudbath with a candle) However my latest prob is the permissions for the tmp directory - I got masses of errors when moving from checkout_payment to confirmation . . . until I set this dir to 774 when they magically disappeared. Is that correct or is it better to use a dir not shared by the cache and with its own permissions? Martin

    UK postcode based shipping module

    Package now posted at: http://www.oscommerce.com/community/contributions,4712 all feedback appreciated, it would be useful if someone can contribute the carrier zone info for other UK carriers e.g. TNT, ANC etc Martin
  10. The previous thread was at: http://forums.oscommerce.com/index.php?sho...mp;#entry980131 but judging by the deafening silence it was either the wrong place (likely!) or nobody is interested in a Uk shipping module based on carrier delivery zones which searches this data out from the postcode. We'll I'm nearly there and have used zipship as the basis which itself is a slightly modified version of the standard zones shipping module. My mods format the postcode correctly with a gap after first character set (using the existing excellent postcode checker) then splits the postcode and searches the first bit of the code against the msql database (derived from data supplied by our carrier APC) and then returns this delivery area and looks up against the table rates inputted through admin. About a dozen zones for whole of UK so very manageageable (compare 3000 postcode entries in database). It's configured for APC but I'm sure could be adapted for ANC, TNT or whoever. You'd need to get hold of tech support for your carrier to get hold of their zone/postcode tables I imagine. So if anyone wants to test this out before I post on "contributions" site then please send me a note and I'll send you the zipped file in a day or two. Martin

    UK Delivery Regions - Seperate Prices

    I have this nicely configured but as most carriers (including mine) in UK seem to define their delivery zones by postcode rather than county I wonder if anyone has tweaked this excellent contribution to use the data in the postcode entry (the first 3 or 4 characters of it that is) to determine rates? I cannot find another contribution that does this - there is a US one called zipship (as in zip code) but that looks fiddlier to configure correctly. Martin
