Downed USPS servers--how to respond?
« on: December 13, 2008, 18:08:28 pm »
Good morning.
While what little shopping season is in full bloom,  USPS servers continue to fiddle. How are others addressing this issue, particularly if you are not a coder and new as a webmaster?

Thanks
Greg.

Are any of you, who operate internet stores, using the Postal Service?  If so, what are you doing to work around the USPS server crash?

The only answer is to do it manually.

Disable the USPS in VM Admin|Configuration|Shipping and use 'Standard Shipping module with individual configured carriers and rates. RECOMMENDED !

You will have create Shipping|Shipper|Shipping rates.

Sorry, no other way around it.
Try posting a link to your website in your profile, or a link to the error page if possible.

Windows Vista has a Snipping Tool in the Accessories area of the Start Button.

Have you read the manual? http://virtuemart.net/documentation/User_Manual/index.html I did, huh?
