Posted 29 Aug 2012I have worked with PayPal a fair bit and this should be fairly simple.
All your going to need is to generate a form/button which will ping off to PayPal, they will then accept/authorise/take payment and return the user to a call back of your choosing. On this call back, you just check to see if the payment was successful, and then add x amount of credits to said users account.
PayPal have some fairly good documentation, an integration wizard and plenty of sample code.
The integration wizard is great for learning how it all works. I never knew it existed, sadly paypal being as big as it is, is poorly organised when it comes to their site(s). As for their documentation it contains a lot of broken links that only further frustrated me thus I gave up on the docs and wanted tuts xD
I'll be taking a look through all the steps and post my results =]
Posted 15 Aug 2012still wasn't disagreeing with anything you said.. was just making some things clear
Posted 14 Aug 2012ok I have server X
Mysql 4.0 (can't be changed)
This database contains a lot of user data for an online game.
Now we also have server Y
Php 5.3 (Can't be changed)
This database contains forum information
I am creating a system that allows users to manage their game accounts via their forum accounts, so I need access to both databases.
But apparently even 5.3 is not compatible with mysql 4.0
Warning: PDO::__construct() [<a href='pdo.--construct'>pdo.--construct</a>]: Connecting to 3.22, 3.23 & 4.0 is not supported. Server is 4.0.21-nt in C:\wamp\www\scripts\database.php on line 138
Posted 14 Aug 2012So version 5.3.13 is still having this problem
Should I use 2 php servers (as this is a possibility for us) one with say php4 and execute the script externally getting the data I require from the older database?
Also if this is a possibility and able to be done (prefer securely, as this will involve user names and passwords) how do I send this data securely between servers without the user being able to send the server fake data?
Posted 14 Aug 2012either way thanks
