Error: Couldn't resolve host 'http:'
« on: December 09, 2009, 00:43:46 am »
okay I've been working on the usps shipping module trying to get it up and running. I've searched around and can't seem to find a definitive answer.

Problem: I get Error: Couldn't resolve host 'http:' when I try to test checkout. For some reason the usps shipping module isn't communicating with the api server. I used the username and password usps sent me and had them turn it on live but it still doesnt seem to work. The server they gave me was http://production.shippingapis.com

If it helps, im running joomla 1.5 and the current build of virtuecart.

please and thanks if anyone knows the answer  ;D

Sorry for being slow but the v4 http://www.parkbeachsystems.com/latest/34-usps-module-for-virtuemart
just follow the directions. I'm still having some problems though between usps and paypal that I'm trying to fix. If you need any more help with that, I'm going to update my profile with messengers.

I finally got it to work by removing the HTTP:// in front of the USPS Shipping Server Address (production.shippingapis.com)!  YIPPIE!!!

I had the same problem and fixed it by entering the following.
USPS shipping server - production.shippingapis.com/
USPS Shipping Path - shippingapi.dll

Dont forget the "/" after .com
