Has anyone been able to get the zen cart bitcoin payment gateway to work? having issue with it connecting to bitcoind.
I purchased a VPS and have bitcoind running on Ubuntu. The gateway installed correctly into zen cart, I can setup all the RPC information as directions require. Whenever I try to use the gateway zen cart throws this error :
Error: Bitcoin server is down. Please email system administrator.
This error suggests a communication error to bitcoind. I believe that bitcoind is installed correctly .
When I run " bitcoind getinfo" I get this:
bituser@server1:~/.bitcoin$ bitcoind getinfo
"version" : 32400,
"balance" : 0.00000000,
"blocks" : 139551,
"connections" : 10,
"proxy" : "",
"generate" : false,
"genproclimit" : -1,
"difficulty" : 1888786.70535305,
"hashespersec" : 0,
"testnet" : false,
"keypoololdest" : 1312281932,
"paytxfee" : 0.00000000,
"errors" : ""
It does show that it is synched correctly. I have tried 3-4 different shopping carts with the appropriate Bitcoin gateways...no dice. Nothing connects at all. I did not install bitcoind myself , the VPS company offered this service for free.
This is what is in my bitcoin.conf:
Has anyone encountered RPC call issues with shared web hosting services?
After all my testing I am starting to think that my hosting on a shared IP is the issue. Does this sound right? I am starting to feel exhausted and desperate to find a solution. Do you need a dedicated IP to get this stuff to work?
Please can some linux guru give me the commands to check connectivity to bitcoind? I really want to make sure it is not some setting or firewall issue to bitcoind.
