Paypal, mysql, and php
Posted on 2011-03-14
I am new here, and I joined to get some help. What I have so far is a reward shop. What I need is a donation system where users who donate money to help support the server receives virtual points.
My problem is I am unable to get the donation system to set up! I need to be able to log the username of the person donating and the amount. Then from there update my sql database and award the donor with donor points. But so far I have no luck with the php coding or the paypal IPN. If someone can help me get this project going it would be great!
Edit: I can donate and it updates to my database. but the thing is I don't know how to make it so it updates the right account . My donate table is different from my account table. And all it stores into the paypal table is the transaction id, amount, email, etc. How would I go about programming a code in php where it checks the session to see if the person is logged in, if so then it sends that data(username, id, email) to database. When paypal sends the info back it verifys and updates the points to the right account. Where would I go about doing something like this?
