October 7 2013 PayPal Changes Fix by BOP5
Mod Version: 1.0.0, by BirdOPrey5 (IB Staff) BirdOPrey5 is offline
Developer Last Online: Mar 2019 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 4.x.x Rating: (7 votes - 5.00 average) Installs: 28
Released: 04 Oct 2013 Last Update: Never Downloads: 86
Not Supported Additional Files  

Brought to you by BirdOPrey5 / Qapla.com PayPal Fix

As of October 7, 2013 PayPal will stop using the HTTP 1.0 protocol (that vBulletin uses) when accepting payments. This means anyone who uses PayPal with vBulletin will need up manually edit a file by October 7 or their future payments will stop working.

All versions of vBulletin 3.x except 3.8.8 and all versions of vBulletin 4.x except 4.2.2 need to make these changes.

See this thread for more info and for the manual file edits: http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/forum...-may-be-needed

For those not comfortable doing the manual file edit I have created this mod which automates the fixes. If you are comfortable with the manual edits, do them instead.

Before you start- manually backup the /includes/paymentapi/class_paypal.php file (download a copy in a safe place)

Step 1) Upload the file included in the zip (upload the /includes/ folder to your forum root)

Step 2) Import the .xml product file in the zip as a new product into vBulletin Product Manager.

Step 3) Go to Admin CP -> Settings -> Options -> October 7th PayPal Changes Fix by BOP5 (should be at the very bottom)

Step 4) Read the instructions, click the "Run Fix Now" button.

Step 5) If successful, uninstall the mod, you should not need it again.

Note- if for any reason the mod does not work for your server setup then please just make the manual file edits specified in the link above. Trouble-shooting the issue will be more work than the manual edits will be.

Should work with all VB 3.8.x and 4.x.x versions.

They probably will, but not to many people running 4.2.2 alpha 1 build, in a production environment.

Anyone using anything less than the 4.2.2 Beta (or the 3.8.8 Beta) will be affected. Even VB5 users, but they will need to do the manual updates unless someone makes a VB5 version of this mod. (Which anyone is welcome to do.)

As of right now I have not heard about any patches being released for 4.x or 3.x but if they are I will happily take down the mod and link to the patch instead.

The mod was a way to "get the word out" whether you use it or make the manual changes, not a big deal- kind of prefer people make the manual edits anyway.

I have tested this on 3 different sites all on shared hosts and it worked fine, but I will bet some sites that are more heavily locked down will have issues.

Good stuff BOP5, even though I don't need this mod to edit the files since I did them myself this will help others who are not comfortable doing them manually.

I don't believe it is any different for https - the requests made to paypal are independent of whether your site uses https or not.

Thanks for this, great stuff!
