Not Supported Additional Files  

Brought to you by BirdOPrey5 / 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:

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.


Please "Mark as Installed" if you use this.
