Hello All,

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 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.

Please advise....

If bitcoind is running on the same box as the cart.  Even better, I think you can just have no rpcallow= line unless you have a damn good reason to accept remote connections.
