  1. Ok, here's what I've found out. After spending quite some time on the phone, I've found out that my hosting company does allow server side rewrites, they just don't allow me to us +SymLinksIfOwnerMatch or FollowSymLinks. What can I do to get the same result without using these commands??
  2. Ok, I've got a real problem. I would love it if FWR Media could take a look at this and offer up an answer. Up until a couple of days ago everything was working fine until my hosting provider decided they wanted to change the security on their servers. All of a sudden I started getting Internal server errors and several other problems but the worst of which is the Internal Server error and now my Ultimate URL doesn't work. Because of their security changes my htaccess file no long works because they are no longer allowing server side rewrites and none of the other options from the contribution worked. I REALLY REALLY NEED SOMEONE'S HELP. Because GoDaddy decided to change their server securities my site is down and I am either going to have to remove Ultimate URL's (which means that all of the work I've done with SEO is out the window) or find a new hosting company. PLEASE HELP!!! is there a way I can use this contrib without doing server side rewrites or is there something else that can be done?????
  3. Jeff, I had the same problem when setting up my shop. It's been a little bit ago but if I remember correctly, the problem is within your settings at paypal. I know that with the fault you're getting and it appears as if it's in the module but it isn't. That's why when it's free shipping you don't send the address to paypal. Also check to make sure all of your settings are correct in admin. I do remember that when I got the problem fixed it had nothing to do with the module itself but an outside source. I will continue to check while and see if I can figure out anymore.
  4. Last comment for the night. I think I've gotten the security header issue taken care of but now it tells me "You must specify one shipping option type as the default." I have been on the paypal site and thought I had it, I've checked OSC and thought I had it, the only common thing between the both of them was, I found out I didn't have it. Can someone tell me how to make these things work and how to get rid of this cursed error!!!!!
  5. One more thing I might add to this conversation (seeing as how I'm the only one conversing) I found this on another part of the forum Possible fix if (!class_exists('httpClient')) { include('includes/classes/http_client.php'); } $http = new httpClient(); if ($http->Connect('', 80)) { $http->addHeader('Host', ''); $http->addHeader('User-Agent', 'osCommerce'); $http->addHeader('Connection', 'Close'); Possible Problem $http = new httpClient(); if ($http->Connect('', 80)) { $http->addHeader('Host', ''); $http->addHeader('User-Agent', 'osCommerce'); $http->addHeader('Connection', 'Close'); after swapping these pieces of code I got the error, "wrong security header" or something similar but this is where the problem seems to be as both of the above reference fatal errors BOTH point to similar code in both files.
  6. I seem to be having a problem with the Paypal Express and Standard module. The 2 errors I'm getting are: Fatal error: Class 'httpClient' not found in /.............../html/includes/modules/shipping/ups.php on line 265 Fatal error: Class 'httpClient' not found in /.............../html/includes/modules/shipping/usps.php on line 303 The common denominator seems to be Paypal. No matter which shipping module I run, when it comes to checking out with Pay Pal I get this httpclient error. I also run Paypal Pro with no issues what-so-ever, it only seems to be a problem when Paypal (I assume) tries to redirect them off of my site onto theirs. Any and all help would, will and can be greatly appreciated.
  7. Now, I have one more problem. I am getting the following error: Fatal error: Class 'httpClient' not found in /home.................../html/includes/modules/shipping/usps.php on line 303 this only happens when I use PayPal Express or Standard and only when one of them are chosen. Check out can be done via Credit or Debit card with no problem. this error happens when Paypal Express is chosen (before a shipping option) or Paypal Standard (after choosing a shipping option and it doesn't matter which shipping option (ups, usps, flat rate) is chosen). Any thoughts at all would be helpful. I've checked the usps.php file and the code at line 303 and it is asking for the "httpClient" I'm just not sure what to do with it.
  8. @@tmckee The only other suggestion that I have for you is to make sure you have the right version installed. I mentioned the above problems because they were problems I experience during my installation. I wish there were something else I could tell you that might fix it and if I happen to think of anything I'll be sure to mention it. I do know that the documentation on my particular version was kind of screwy. I had to go to history and go back a couple of versions in order to get the step-by-step file mods, to far and they were wrong, not far enough and they weren't there.
  9. @@acedave as to the question about USPS, it's the username and password they sent you, not the one you created.
  10. @@acedave There are two possibilities (that I know of) as to why this may be happening. First is that you don't have any options chosen in the USPS admin. The other is that that you don't have your zip code set up in admin -> configuration -> shipping/packaging. Take a look at both of those, I'm betting one of the other will fix your issue.
  11. Go back to the contribution and go to history. Download one of the earlier versions (I can't remember exactly which one it is) until you find one with the file readme.txt that has the STEP-BY-STEP FILE MODS in it. Follow those file mods to the letter and your error will go away and the contribution will work. I had the same problem until someone started asking me questions and said something about "Step 2". Once I found the step by step everything came together and worked fine. If you have problems finding it, PM me and I'll attach it to a PM message.
  12. Go into the admin and make sure that you have some of the shipping options selected. If you don't have anything selected, nothing will be shown at check out. Also make sure that you have your zip code set in admin as well. Without your zip code set it will also not display any shipping options at checkout with out saying anything about a problem.
  13. @@FWR Media. Thanks for the information. Some of the instructions were a little vague but it's working as of now. I changed the htaccess file and also changed the config. The only issue I'm having now is for some reason, the sitemapCategories.xml file had a date of 1969-12-31 at the end of it and google Webmaster Tools reports it as an error. Is this something that you know has been reported before or is this isolated to my site.
  14. @Praful and FWR Media, Below is my htaccess file, maybe this will help. # If you are getting errors you may need to comment this out like .. # Options +FollowSymLinks Options +SymLinksIfOwnerMatch <IfModule mod_rewrite.c> RewriteEngine On # RewriteBase instructions # Change RewriteBase dependent on how your shop is accessed as below. # = RewriteBase / # = RewriteBase /catalog/ # = RewriteBase /catalog/shop/ # Change RewriteBase using the instructions above = RewriteBase / RewriteRule ^([a-z0-9/-]+)-p-([0-9]+).html$ product_info.php [NC,L,QSA] RewriteRule ^([a-z0-9/-]+)-c-([0-9_]+).html$ index.php [NC,L,QSA] RewriteRule ^([a-z0-9/-]+)-m-([0-9]+).html$ index.php [NC,L,QSA] RewriteRule ^([a-z0-9/-]+)-pi-([0-9]+).html$ popup_image.php [NC,L,QSA] RewriteRule ^([a-z0-9/-]+)-pr-([0-9]+).html$ product_reviews.php [NC,L,QSA] RewriteRule ^([a-z0-9/-]+)-pri-([0-9]+).html$ product_reviews_info.php [NC,L,QSA] # Articles contribution RewriteRule ^([a-z0-9/-]+)-t-([0-9_]+).html$ articles.php [NC,L,QSA] RewriteRule ^([a-z0-9/-]+)-au-([0-9]+).html$ articles.php [NC,L,QSA] RewriteRule ^([a-z0-9/-]+)-a-([0-9]+).html$ article_info.php [NC,L,QSA] # Information pages RewriteRule ^([a-z0-9/-]+)-i-([0-9]+).html$ information.php [NC,L,QSA] # Links contribution RewriteRule ^([a-z0-9/-]+)-links-([0-9_]+).html$ links.php [NC,L,QSA] # Newsdesk contribution RewriteRule ^([a-z0-9/-]+)-n-([0-9]+).html$ newsdesk_info.php [NC,L,QSA] RewriteRule ^([a-z0-9/-]+)-nc-([0-9]+).html$ newsdesk_index.php [NC,L,QSA] RewriteRule ^([a-z0-9/-]+)-nri-([0-9]+).html$ newsdesk_reviews_info.php [NC,L,QSA] RewriteRule ^([a-z0-9/-]+)-nra-([0-9]+).html$ newsdesk_reviews_article.php [NC,L,QSA] </IfModule>
  15. @Praful, Both cache and SEO URL's are off. I should also mention that I am using version 2.3.2. @@FWR Media, I add the line to my htaccess.txt file and that shutdown the site. At this point maybe I should mention (or ask) I am supposed to change the htaccess.txt file to .htaccess on the server side, right? That's the only way it seems to have any effect at all. When I do i get a server configuration error.
