Timestamp too long?

I’m getting the following error when EE tries to link to the external payment gateway.

Error 508
Invalid timestamp: { Too many characters }

Can anybody point in the direction of how to find or modify the timestamp?

I should have noted that it worked fine on with EE 3.1.25.P

Now on with EE there seems to be issues.

Hi Brian,

Is this for the Realex gateway? Which version are you currently on? We haven’t seen this on other installs that use this gateway, but I can take a look.

Hey Brian,

I found the problem. It’s line 24 of Realauth.php in gateways/realauth. It should be:

$this->timestamp = date("YmdHis");

It’s fixed in the next version, and if you want to send ftp info, we can fix it in the current version on your server.

That works now.
