Since our last update ( Our registration ID seems wrong and they aren’t being completed by paypal.

See here:

1-ID seems to be broken (even if paypal received completly the payment). And the other ID seems normal.

Any idea why and how to fix this?

The second registration appears to be added by the admin, which would explain the different type of ID.

I seem to remember Patrick needed to modify the PayPal gateway because the CA cert file could not be found. Did this modification get overwritten on the update? I dug up the email he had sent, which included the patch added to the gateways/paypal/paypal.php:

        $error["set_timeout"] = curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_TIMEOUT, 45); // Sets a time limit for curl in seconds (do not set too low)
        $error["set_post"] = curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POST, 1); // Set curl to send data using post
        $error["set_post_fields"] = curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, $req); // Add the request parameters to the post
      curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_CAINFO, dirname(__FILE__) . '/cacert.pem'); // HACKFEST PATCH
        $errors .= $error["set_host"] ? "Success" : "Failure";
        $errors .= " Setting host: " . $url . "\n";
        $errors .= $error["set_post"] ? "Success" : "Failure";

The Paypal gateway should be copied over to /wp-content/uploads/espresso/gateway so the changes do not get overwritten.

Thanks, it has been overwritten as I didn’t tought about gateway change but only template modifications!

I will try to see if it gets completed now. I’ll keep you post.
