Paypal - old security certificate

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I've noticed something that may be of use to users of the standard osC Paypal module.

 

It seems that the Verisign certificate for secure.paypal.com expired several months ago - and this is the default url customers are sent to when paying.

 

Result - customers get a warning message about the site, which may put some off purchasing.

 

Solution - change line 32 of includes/modules/payment/paypal.php

 

$this->form_action_url = 'https://secure.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr';

 

to

 

$this->form_action_url = 'https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr';

 

This will direct customers to a Paypal page with a valid certificate.

 

Thanks,

 

Dave
