spent most of the day trying to sort this but have failed. What I have tried islistede below am really in need of help as the client is talking about another cart program,
this is what I did:
I backed up my exisiting remote site
Deleted the site but not the connections directory
Modified the mail_php.php to $mailObj = mail($mailTo,$mailSubject,$mailContent,$mailHeader , "-f".$mailFrom);
because this enables emails to be sent on Fasthosts.
uploaded the core master files from the downloaded zip
The database connected to the existing database.
Went to buy a $1 towel with the option selected in admin to use test mode
the system went to paypal and returned to the main site but no paypal information or shipping information was shown and no order was entered into the database.
Went back into Admin and deselected test mode and engaged the sand box in charges.
Bought an item but received the pp+checkout failure page telling me the transaction could not be completed. Again no order was entered into the database.
Finaly I unticked the sandbox option.
Went back and purchased an item again this sent me to paypal and then returned me to the confirm order page.
At that point I returned to the checkout failure page. And again no orders were entered in the database.
Finaly I tried to place an order without rgistering,
I just selected all products picked my $1 test item and added to cart. I then reaced the checkout page and pressed the paypal button
This took me to paypal where I went through the normal checkout when I return to the pp_confirm.php there is no email box just an option
to enter a password and confirm. If I do this then press confirm order I am returned to the pp_checkout failure page.
