    Default Paypal and CURL

    Dreamhost's default PHP installation does not allow using file read
    (fopen/fread/fclose) with URLs, this is a security feature in our global
    PHP configuration.

    This makes it so the palpal ipn module does not work. See my ipncheck here:

    Does that make sense? Thats what they are telling me.

    Their solution was to install custom php on my account (which I have no idea how to do) or use CURL.

    How would I use CURL?

    I really need to get paypal ipn working, and with no communication to.from paypal, customers are not getting emails and its not showing in my admin

    Please don't repost.
    Please do not PM for support issues: a private solution doesn't benefit the community.

    Be careful with unsolicited advice via email or PM - Make sure the person you are talking to is a reliable source.
