Hi,

I've been playing around with BitCoins for a weeks now, I want to be able to take BitCoin (and potentially LiteCoin) payments on my website for premium account subscriptions. It needs to be an automatic service whereby as soon as the transaction comes in, a SQL database record is updated.

Is there any way I can do this without having to keep the blockchain on my server?
it's slow to update, and causes bitcoind to eat away at more RAM and CPU than I would like. I'm opposed to using any 3rd party payment handling service: I don't want the fees and want manage all the transactions myself.

So, is there a headless (no GUI) linux bitcoin client out there I'm able to interact with using RPC/PHP, but which doesn't require the blockchain locally, one perhaps where it queries blockchain.info, or something.

Thanks.

mtgox has code for accepting bitcoins. If you use opencart, you can integrate walletbit pretty easily. I don't know how you could do it without using one of those without doing each transaction manually via email communications or something.

As long as you're willing to code a solution to fit your website you can base it on the Armory Daemon here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=92496
No blockchain to deal with, no bitcoins to steal.

You'll probably need to integrate it with the blockchain.info API to check when payments arrived or something.
One of the following should suit you.
http://blockchain.info/api/blockchain_api

I've only had a brief look at this service, but it seems quite promising, thanks.
I originally intended to use the blockchain.info api_receive but the documentation falls short IMO.

I am indeed. I had looked at Armory, and it seemed great, but I thought it was a GUI only based; didn't know it had a daemon counterpart so thanks.

Hopefully I'll be able to get all this up and running by the end of the week.

I would suggest you to use MTGox, they have a special button.

I think mtgox is nice and trust worthy.

I have been searching for a good way to integrate opencart and bitcoin.. I almost got it working with BTCGear's extension but I can't get it to connect to the bitcoind server.

I have been looking at walletbit and bitpay and cant seem to get their site's working very well. Seems strange

mtgox is the way to go...though tying an exchanger to a service might be risky in the long long run.
