Dear Experts, Am a newbie to integrating website to payment gateways. Please help with necessary guide.

1. The payment gateway would send my server an HTTP request in the format provided below:
(See Page1.Txt)

My server is to reply with xml format provided in Page2.Txt

Can anyone please help with a code.

I saw this code on the net but could not make much out of it

$raw_post_data = file_get_contents('php://input');
$raw_post_array = explode('&', $raw_post_data);
$myPost = array();
foreach ($raw_post_array as $keyval) {
      $keyval = explode ('=', $keyval);
      if (count($keyval) == 2)
            $myPost[$keyval[0]] = urldecode($keyval[1]);
}

In PHP, XML processing is usually done with the SimpleXML class.  Get rid of that code you found on the net - it's either useless or flatly wrong.  Please contact the payment gateway and ask them what request method they use to send the XML.  It's probably POST, but we want to verify that before you go too far.

I'll try to show you how to use SimpleXML to parse Page1.txt

Please see http://www.laprbass.com/RAY_temp_ukconcepts.php

Look at the HEREDOC definition very carefully.  What was posted in Page1.txt is not valid XML.  Several changes were necessary to even get it to create an object!

<?php // RAY_temp_ukconcepts.php
error_reporting(E_ALLL);
echo '<pre>';

$xml = <<<EOD
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<CustomerInformationRequest>
<MerchantReference>126</MerchantReference>
<CustReference>0123</CustReference>
<PaymentItemCategoryCode>628051043</PaymentItemCategoryCode>
<PaymentItemCode>6280510431000</PaymentItemCode>
<RequestReference>0000000001</RequestReference>
<TerminalId>31WP0001</TerminalId>
<Amount>31WP0001</Amount>
<ServiceUsername></ServiceUsername>
<ServicePassword></ServicePassword>
<FtpUsername></FtpUsername>
<FtpPassword></FtpPassword>
</CustomerInformationRequest>
EOD;

$obj = SimpleXML_Load_String($xml);
var_dump($obj);
