  1. Thanks @burt! Yes, their server(s) must have been having issues as it has resolved itself. Ken
  2. Just in the last few hours our USPS module is not returning domestic quotes. It is returning international quotes quickly and accurately. On the domestic quotes there's a long delay before it apparently timeouts and then continues to display the checkout_shipping page with the other carrier quotes. I know this because I tested with USPS disabled and our FedEx quotes some back quickly (as do the international USPS quotes). Anyone else having this issue or know what is causing it? I'm guessing it is a USPS API issue but none of the websites that monitor the USPS API are indicating any issues. I'm hoping something hasn't changed with the API that would require a rework of the USPS module. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Ken
  3. I haven't used ShipStation and don't mean to hijack your thread, however, I thought it might be helpful to mention that ShipWorks has a OSC integration. I've used it for years and recently upgraded OSC to 2.3.4BS Responsive and am still using ShipWorks. I ship to the U.S. and internationally via USPS, FedEx, UPS and OnTrac and ShipWorks handles it all.
  4. I need to upgrade from MySQL 5.5.54 to version 5.7.18. QUESTIONS: 1. Will this break my my v2.3.4 version of OSC given I am running 5.5.54 now? 2. Will I have to do anything to the OSC databases or code after the MySQL upgrade? Thanks in advance, Ken
  5. Thank you John for the reply and information. Yes, port has been changed as well as other measures to secure ssh. QUESTIONS: 1. I need to upgrade from MySQL 5.5.54 to version 5.7.18. Will this break my my v2.3.4 version of OSC given I am running 5.5.54 now? 2. Will I have to do anything to the OSC databases or code after the MySQL upgrade? Thanks, Ken
  6. I am currently running osCommerce Online Merchant v2.3.4. I need to uprade Openssh. I don't believe Openssh has anything to do with OSC but I thought I would ask if there's any risk to OSC by upgrading Openssh to version 7.4. Thanks in advance!
  7. My dedicated server running a very old and highly modified OSC 2.2 was coming to the end of support. As a result, I was forced, in a very short timeframe, to migrate to another server. This necessitated that I abandoned my beloved OSC 2.2 and either bail on OSC and go with a hosted shopping cart or upgrade to OSC 2.3.4. In either case it would be a huge effort considering I have nearly one hundred thousand customers and orders. Not to mention many significant modification requirements for both the front end and the backend. If all this wasn’t complex and challenging enough we also have custom integrations to shipping and help desk applications! All of that was just the OSC side of things. We also have a message board with tens of thousands of members and hundreds of thousands of posts. As well as other community pages. Both were also part of this project. As you can see it doesn’t get more complex and challenging. I posted for recommendations of an expert who was qualified to help with this project. Henry was one of the first to contact me and was extremely responsive to my many questions and concerns. I hired him for this project he began immediately. Perhaps you are like me. I had previously done all my OSC 2.2 work. This would be the first time I would provide anyone access to my server, code and data. To say I was apprehensive is an understatement. However, Henry was able to set my concerns at ease and he quickly earned the trust I placed him in. I now have a new 2.3.4BS OSC site that is fully responsive. It looks great on a desktop, tablet and mobile. It’s FAST and easy to use regardless of the device you are accessing it from. The server is configured to run completely over https. Henry also migrated the message board which was no small task and it too looks and functions great on a desktop, tablet and mobile. Henry also help with Google analytics and search console and historic Google impressions and clicks were maintained and are trending up. He was able to maintain link consistency throughout my website (OSC, message board and other content) so priceless links hosted on other websites to my website are fully functional. Many of the OSC addons I was using in OSC 2.2 had to be tweaked, in some cases significantly, to work with 2.3.4BS. Mods like CCGV and Ajax Attributes just to name two. The bottom line is this project was very complex and challenging in many ways and I could not be more pleased with Henry’s expertise, creativeness, and determination to deliver a high quality and functional OSC site based on my specific needs as an existing store owner. I would HIGHLY recommend Henry for any OSC related project regardless of the size or complexity. In fact, Henry went so far above and beyond and I am so pleased with the effort and result for the price originally quoted I sent him an unsolicited bonus! If you are stuck on an old version of OSC that is showing its age time to engage Henry and move to a fully responsive OSC. You will be very happy you did and so will your customers! Again, I highly recommend Henry for any OSC project.
  8. Resolved. added two parameters to the following paypal.php line: Original: tep_draw_hidden_field('amount_1', number_format(($order->info['total'] - $order->info['shipping_cost']) * $currencies->get_value($my_currency), $currencies->get_decimal_places($my_currency))) . Changed: tep_draw_hidden_field('amount_1', number_format(($order->info['total'] - $order->info['shipping_cost']) * $currencies->get_value($my_currency), $currencies->get_decimal_places($my_currency), '.', '')) . This tells the number_format function not to include the thousands comma. Fixed my issue. Hope it helps others.
  9. I'm having this same issue. 1. For my situation it is definitely the "," for orders over a thousand. I've confirmed this by submitting an order under $1,000 and I get the new payment page. Over $1,000 I get the old payment page. 2. As suggested I removed the "," in the localization and using Chrome Developer Tools with Perserve Log and Cache Disabled the form is still sending the "," on orders over $1,000. 3. I prefer to have the "," in the listing as it's easier for my customers to read the cost of an item that is over $1,000 or when their shopping cart gets over $1,000. So, I want to retain this and remove it when the PayPal form is being set up (code change to the PayPal module). Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance. P.S. I am in the process of building a new OSC with the latest 2.3.4BS Edge. Just not sure I'll have it done before this PP deadline.
  10. Thanks for the replies @John W and @ecommunlimited! Any one have any experience with BlueHost (an OsCommerce hosting partner)?
  11. I'm in need of a new dedicated server to run OSC and a message board. I've been with SoftLayer for years and while they have been very good they were most recently acquired by IBM and their prices are significantly higher than what I am paying now for my current server (double). Any recommendations for a dedicated server hosting company that has excellent up-time (server and network), support and is reasonably priced would be very much appreciated. Majority of our business is U.S. based so likely a U.S. hosting company. Thanks in advance. Ken
  12. We are running 2.2.MS2 and need to upgrade for OS, MySQL and PHP version reasons. I'd be very interested in any experience you have with any OsCommerce developer who helped you with your migration/upgrade or implementation. Obviously, they need to be professional, experienced, thorough, timely and reasonably priced. Positive or negative experiences welcomed. Please share. Thanks in advance. Ken
  13. This works for both domestic and international quotes. I installed the full package of 5.2.1 and overwrote usps.php with the one mentioned here and I am getting domestic and international quotes again. Thank you for those who contributed to make this version work with the new and unimproved USPS API. SUGGESTION: Endicia is a 3rd party USPS postage provider we use to save on shipping and make creating postage labels easier. They have an API for quotes. Someone with more expertise and interest could develop a USPS shipping module based on Endicia's API. It would not only allow the quoting but allow much easier label creation at lower postal rates.
  14. anyone? if so, please be explicit with what you are running that is working, along with any modifications and installation instructions. it would be greatly appreciated by many. thanks!
