well the pem file is definitely there, and the path is as you suggested it would be.
i don't want to hardcode it, as it won't work when the files move from the testing server.
i tried echoing the line on the checkout page like so...
echo 'path is'."".realpath("../linkpoint/number.pem") ."";
but it returns nothing.
do i need to use realpath at all or can i use a relative path ?
