I have another error entirely: when I click on the PayPal Express button I'm redirected onto a blank page which only has

Fatal error: Call to undefined function curl_init() in /var/www/web228/html/administrator/components/com_virtuemart/classes/payment/paypal_api/CallerService.php on line 55

on it, when I try PayPal as the payment option in the checkout the same happens only with the additional Warning that no CreditCard info was given above it. Other available payment options are CreditCard (now with 2 radiobuttons thanks to PayPal API) and Purchase Order (Nachname in German - as the shop is in German)

I'm using VirtueMart 1.1.7a on a 1.5.22 Joomla, sh404sef version 2.2.3.945 is installed and activated with mod_rewrite in use.

This error occurred both times before and after I replaced the ps_checkout.php with the one downloadable in zanardis first post.

The Page is life already you can find it here: http://www.imi-faktor.at/Strahlenbelastung The shop is supposed to work by 6th april 2011 so any help at all would be very appreciated.

I'm of course working and testing it at the moment so I might deactivate current payment options and activate others as I go, from the looks of it I might have to go with the PayPal legacy at this rate  :'(

Also from the looks of it there is no patch from 1.1.7a to 1.1.8 and no work around to use the 1.1.7 to 1.1.8 patch either...I'm starting to panic

"curl" is a prerequisite of PayPal API. You should check with your hosting provider for its availability on your server.

I found out to use the "HTML-Form based (e.g. PayPal)" Payment method type for paypal and the payment with paypal went smoothly.

I hope this helps.

Hi,

The solution posted here worked for me.

Joomla 1.5

Paypal API New
Payment Method Type: Use Payment Processor
Accepted Credit Card Types: None selected.
