My company (myself and three others) has been working on a subscription-based magazine type site for some clients. We recently reached a point where transaction processing would become an issue, and, under guidance from our clients, licensed Verisign PayFlow Pro, a popular e-commerce portal.
However, we’re having a lot of trouble getting it to work with our PHP installation, on our DreamHost hosting. The most recent thread on this topic is over a year old, and offers little in the way of concrete explanation as to how they integrated the extension.
I understand that it involves essentially recompiling a customer version of PHP, and while I have little to no practical experience with that particular task, one of our guys does, and he indicates that his problem is a lack of a file called “pfpro.so” and lack of access to directories where configuration and extension files would be placed.
If anyone who’s gotten Payflow Pro to work with Dreamhost could post information on how they accomplished the task, I’d really appreciate it.
