Hmm... I need to find out myself. I don't know what is the right answer to your question. I'll do some investigation and get back to you if I got an answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably can answer it..
I finished installing the Paypal IPN contrib, and it seems to work fineorders that are placed with Paypal are now recorded properly. However, the order confirmation emails are not sent, either to me or to the customer..
Has anyone else encountered this problem? And if so, how do you fix it?.
You should search the existing support thread instead of creating a new one. There are hundreds of people that have installed this and covered these bugs many times over. I think last time I looked (long time ago) there were over 20 pages of replies and fixes and tips on using that contrib..
Can you describe the steps you performed to do this?.
Well, going to the contributions page and searching for "IPN" ought to lead you to the contrib. There's an HTML file included in the download that gives throrough instructions. It's really not too hard, I just had problems with the "phpMyAdmin" step because I'd never used that before...
That's the step I'm stuck on, and the help file didn't seem to help, so if you can describe how the ALTER TABLE steps were performed, it'd be greatly appreciated..
You need to go into phpMyAdmin (usually accessed through your host's control panel) and paste that line in the SQL box..
Alternately, you can give.
A shot. I haven't fully tested it, but it seems to work fine if you only run one query at a time. (end of each SQL query is denoted by a..
Not sure what IPN you are useing, but search my posts that I made and use the code I have for the paypal page, and this will work for you..
The PayPal IPN contribution found here:.
Works very well..
It includes the file paypalipn.sql which performs all MySQL database additions/changes automatically. Just use your MySQL control panel to install it...
Like many others before me, I'm having trouble with the Paypal payment module. Most of my customers use Paypal, and I usually receive their payments without having any record of their order. I've already set Paypal's "auto return" feature to "checkout_success.php", but that doesn't always work depending on what the customer does..
I've downloaded the Paypal IPN contribution, but I have no idea how to install it. It gives instructions like, "use phpMyAdmin to make the following change: ALTER TABLE orders ADD paypal_ipn_id INT( 11 ) DEFAULT '0' NOT NULL;". How in the world do I do that??.
I'd very much appreciate anyone who could help me install this contrib, or who has other (easier) advice for making sure that orders paid for with Paypal are actually recorded..
Please reply to this post, or (if you're feeling particularly charitable) AIM me at "CobraTPT". Thanks!..
Heh, nevermind about the IPN installation thing, I just figured that out. I'd still be interested in hearing about any simpler fixes to the Paypal problem, though. Thanks!..
