:unsure: I have been using automated auction for around 2 months now....

and I am running into a strange situation where the auction status is not changing from active to ended... it does not appear to be happening all of the time but enough times that is is costing me sales. Any one else seeing this issue?

 

I went in to the sql table and discovered that the auction_data table is recording zeros for some of the products_ids also there are duplicate product _ids.... what gives?

Nope.

You can read more about cURL here:

 

http://curl.haxx.se/

 

Are you sure it is noit installed? I have not seen many installs that do not include it. Check your admin page and about your server. Should be listed there.

Hello everyone,

I am still alive but due to a life altering sutuation I will no longer be able to support this contrib. I would like to offer it up to anyone who would like to develop it further. I could email what I have done on v1.1 if anyone is interested in finishing it. Let me know. I am truly sorry for this but due to forces beond my control I can not continue. I will always be open for questions though.

Gokou,

Unfortunitaly there is no way to bypass curl, it is the core of this contrib.

If you are getting the message

Fatal error: Call to undefined function: curl_init()

 

then php can't find the "curl for php" lib. This means you may have curl installed but you do not have the curl for php mod installed. you can check in your admin under tools -> server Info. Scroll down and you should find something like this:

 

curl

 

CURL support enabled

 

CURL Information libcurl 7.9.8 (OpenSSL 0.9.7a) (ipv6 enabled)

 

 

Hope that helps!

Try going to your database and empting the auction_data table, then updating again. I seem to recall this worked for me. Make sure the title is exactly the same as the ebay title - it doesn't like unusual characters like "&" in the title - at least on my system. Also make sure you are going to the correct ebay site for your country (ebay.com or ebay.co.uk or ebay.de etc)

 

Hope this helps.

Hello everyone,

Gokou, If your server is set up on a Windows platform and not Linux you may need to make an adjustment for cURL to send and accept cookies. Here is what you need to do:

 

Find these lines in get_auction_info.php. there will be 6 of them.

 

curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_COOKIEJAR, "/tmp/ebay_cookie"); 
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_COOKIEFILE, "/tmp/ebay_cookie");

 

This part of the cURL code tells where to store the cookies,

and where they can be found upon request.

 

Change it to:

 

curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_COOKIEJAR, "c:\tmp\ebay_cookie"); 
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_COOKIEFILE, "c:\tmp\ebay_cookie");

 

Or something like that.

Last make sure that the c:\tmp\ directory exists.

 

If you are running this on a Linux platform you may want to make sure there is a tmp directory on the root of the drive and the permissins are something loose like 755.

 

Basically it is not that cURL is rejecting cookies it is that ebay can't find the cookies, so there is a problem writing or reading them.

 

Hope that helps.

:D :D

I skimmed through this thread, dont know if anyone figured it out yet, but I cant get the Update your Auction Listings Button to work. I have cUrl installed and working, and I get no error messages, just nothing shows up.

 

I went into get_auction_info.php and saw var/tmp/ebay_cookie, and I changed it to /home/virtual/site20/fst/var/tmp/ebay_cookie, since my site is on a shared server. That did nothing. I also changed referring site from somewhere.com to my sites domain, still nothing.

 

Lastly, I made sure my auction listings title in oscommerce matched the title of my ebay auction, and again, still nothing happens when I hit that update button.

 

ohh, and a bit off topic, but still related to this thread.

 

Just an idea here, but could the auctionblox contribution be rebuilt to work directly with the ebay API instead of through the auctionblox website? I downloaded and installed it, thinking it was a free contrib like this one, and then I realized that it only works if you pay for a membership with auctionblox :(. I think they took some of this contrib to build it, as well as some other contribs, so I dont see why we cant redo it to suit our needs. Maybe someone can look into that.

Okay, well I got it working, I went into phpmyadmin and I emptied out the auction_data table, and then when I hit the update button, my auction appeared :D....... But while I was reading this thread looking for the answer to my above problem, I read that there were issues using this contrib for auction checkout? Something with the shopping cart? I was wondering if anyone has had issues with it? If so, was it anythign serious? My site is going live soon, should I leave this running as is, or does it pose some security risk and/or simply wont allow a proper checkout? Please let me know. Thanks.

I think [AuctionBlox] took some of this contrib to build it, as well as some other contribs

 

For the record, that statement is not true. eBay Auction Manager was a contribution written entirely by me over a period of 10 months. So, please be courteous and give appropriate credit. Thank you.

Well, a few of the parts look exactly the same. For example, the checkout area (the page ebay users are brought to when the click the checkout button). I made an assumption when I saw that. I may have been wrong, I apologize.

 

AuctionBlox looked like a great contrib, I just wish we could have used it directly with ebay instead of having a monthly membership fee with a third party. You also should have mentioned in the contrib area that it is not free, and it is a commercial script.

im sure i dont have it. i get this error

Fatal error: Call to undefined function: curl_init()

 

I'm getting this message too despite my provider's assurance that it's installed and enabled. I don't think he's to knowledgeable though.

 

Curl is not listed on the server info page and I've asked him to make sure that it's enabled. He replied and said :

 

"I just verified it in your public_html folder and the verification came up good. did you need it in another folder ?

 

Well, good question, should it be in another folder and can someone advise me on what to ask him to do next? For what I'm paying I don't expect him to jump through hoops for me but he seems willing to do what he can

 

Thanks,

Ron

Well, I've read this thread about 3 dozen times, hoping to make heads or tales of the auctions not updating in admin. I've done all that's been tried previously. Here's the thing that is troubling me: When I go into myPHPAdmin and browse my auction_data table, all my ebay auctions are listed. So the script is working so far as compiling the db...but somehow they're not making it into the auction_out.php file. I've looked at this so much that I can see it burned into the back of my eyelids at night, and now I've all but given up. Anyone come up with a epiphany??

That happened to me, so I just emptied the table and then went back to the update my auctions button, and it worked fine after that.

 

By some chance, did you use one ebay username/password and then switch to a different one? I am pretty sure that is what screwed me up, since the table had one aucton from one ebay name, and then several from another.
