Paypal Changes (affecting all versions)
« on: July 17, 2013, 05:39:36 am »
Paypal will use a slightly different format to validate payments (i.e. your check to hand out DP)

Code: [Select]
PHP
// post back to PayPal system to validate $header="POST /cgi-bin/webscr HTTP/1.1\r\n"; $header .="Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded\r\n";
$header .="Host: www.paypal.com\r\n";
$header .="Connection: close\r\n\r\n";

This will be in 1.2.5 which will be released once I verify it works.

It should be fixed, but it won't be easy and it won't be fast. If you want
to help - wonderful. But keep in mind that it will take months of wading
through the ugliest code we have in the tree. If you've got a weak stomach -
stay out. I've been there and it's not a nice place.

The Connection:close does not work... it will not generate a mail.

I think it works now, but will still check that double.

And: xajax seems to produce high output in certain cases, I have presently updated it to the last (but 1 year old version).
