  1. I *think* that the OP was asking, "If I set up additional security, such as password protection to the admin directory through my cPanel, can osC check that too, and not check just for .htaccess." And, I think the answer is No. Malcolm
  2. @Dan Cole I have entertained the idea of doing this too. Could you further explain how you did this? A write-up on how you set up and maintain this would be most welcome. Thanks! Malcolm
  3. @mattjt83 If so, will you release it? Please (and commercially is fine too ) Malcolm
  4. @kymation Thanks, Jim! That seems to have solved it And yes, it's line 124 here too. Malcolm
  5. @kymation *** UPDATE *** This is a new shop I am developing. I wanted to see if the problem could be caused by any of the add-ons or changes I had already made. So, I installed a clean copy of EDGE (dated 5/11/17), and installed the USPS Rate module. I then entered an order with an UK address. BAM ... Yes, I'm developing the shop on an in-house WAMP box. So, I then wanted to see if somehow the problem was due to my in-house box. I created a temporary directory on one of my hosted shops, installed a clean copy of EDGE, and again installed the USPS Rates module. I ran an order through the shop with an UK address, and It worked! No warnings! So, I took the shop I have been developing, and moved it up to my host (I already had the domain name registered, and a preliminary site started). BAM ... the site crashed. All I got was the background color. I was able to log into the admin site, but the store was empty. Debug showed me an "500 internal server error". Geez, that's helpful ... So ... I logged into my host, and started examining the error logs. For some reason, one module in the navbar wasn't finding it's template. Everything was there, but it was being fussy. So, I "temporarily" moved the contents of the template file into the navbar module itself, and the shop came back to life! Still puzzled about that one ... Anyway, the shop was up. I ran an order through the shop with an UK address, and no warnings! So, was this a case of "Why you should develop on your real host, and not on an in-house box" ? Nope... While I was looking through the error logs on my host, I noticed many, many instances of the same PHP warning, both for the new site I'm working on, but also for my existing shops that also use the USPS Rates module .. [01-Aug-2017 12:39:42 America/Los_Angeles] PHP Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /XXXXX/XXXXX/XXXX/XXXXX/catalog/includes/modules/shipping/usps.php on line 123 So, I've been getting these warning all along! But, I'm guessing that I have the warning set off in the live sites, but set on in the ones I am working on here in-house. Like I said above, the USPS was passing back the proper rates. So, the module does work, but there is an issue in the code that is generating these warnings. We can hide the warnings, but that doesn't really solve the problem. Thanks for letting me vent a bit Malcolm
  6. Ok, I found this list of countries on the USPS website ... And I compared it to my database. There were some differences (some countries on one list but not the other), but for the three warning countries I listed above ... Afghanistan: warning <--- The countries were the same in both Cambodia: warning <--- The countries were the same in both UK: warning <--- The USPS has it as 'Great Britain and Northern Ireland' and osC has it as 'United Kingdom' The USPS debug email for the UK says ...

  7. @kymation Thanks, Jim. I just looked through the USPS debug emails. All of the requests have the country in mixed caps (ex: Canada), and the reply has it in all caps (ex: CANADA). This is the same for both the countries that produce the warning, and the countries that don't. Besides the case, the country requested and the country replied are the same. Besides, if the country name requested (ie: in the database) is different than what the USPS is expecting, how is it that the USPS does return a postage cost? Malcolm
  8. He may be on holiday, as much of Europe is now. (just saying) Malcolm
  9. As others have reported here before, I am also getting the following warning for SOME countries: Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in xxxxx\catalog-m3\includes\modules\shipping\usps.php on line 123 But, the post office DOES return a postage rate, even for the countries that produce this warning. I've not tested EVERY country, but of the handful that I have tested ... Afghanistan: warning Cambodia: warning Canada: no warning Denmark: no warning Netherlands: no warning Turkey: no warning UK: warning United States (with or without ZIP code): no warning I enabled the debugging email, but can not see any commonality in the emails between those countries that produce the warning, and/or those that do not. I can post them here, if anyone wishes. Has anyone found a solution for this? TIA Malcolm
  10. @gregba Glad to point you in the right direction Malcolm
  11. @98stratos Is this a new store, or an existing one? If this a live existing store, you would be better spending your time moving it to the latest responsive version of osCommerce. When your host upgrades their version of PHP, your store will crash. Malcolm
  12. @gregba Are you using the .htaccess security feature in the admin side of your shop? Malcolm
  13. @98stratos What version of osCommerce are you using? Malcolm
  14. @raiwa Thank you. Malcolm
  15. @raiwa Because I am trying not to change 'core files' Changed. And the quantity still can be adjusted. Thank you! Malcolm
