""Configuration Error: Unable to connect to socket""
Posted by TimeTraveller on Jan-28-00 at 05:15 PM (EST)
My Ushop has been working fine for months, when all of a sudden, the last two days I'm getting the above error. My customers see just this message, and do not get a confirmation of their order. I in turn, do not get their order mailed to me, but the order is sitting out on the server in the orders directory.

There have been no changes to the system, at least on my end (I can't speak for my ISP), so any clue as to what would have all of a sudden caused this problem? I'm installed on a Windows NT server, if this helps.

Stephen,

Definately check with your ISP. All other things staying the same, this seems the likely reason. They may have switched e-mail applications (to something like BLAT). If so that would explain your errors. We have special versions of the cgiscript to accomodate this.

I too just started receiving this error, cart was working fine, and it seems to have just stopped, order writes, they get the error, no e-mail.
I think I'll need one of these special versions as well.

For that problem to just start occuring... it is a good indication that something changed on your server and/or mailserver to prevent the uShop CGI script from sending email via a socket connection to your mail server.

Q1) What version of uShop are you using?

Q2) Also operating system is your server? Unix or NT?

If you web hosting provider did make changes to their server configuration, you may have to change the method by which email is sent from your uShop CGI script.

For now, (assuming that you are using uShop 3.x), just to get rid of the error and allow you to receive orders, try setting configuration question #7 at the top of the ushop.pl script to:

$email_method = "CUSTOM";

This will cause the script NOT to send emails...but at least customers will not see the error message. You can then use the uShop Order Reader utility to check for new orders until the email configuration is resolved.
