The order reader is not working. Never has been reliable. If I go through and place an order myself, it appears to work.
If I get an order from an outside source, it says "There are no orders files to delete" on the

I can send a test email from the diagnostics page OK...The diagnostics find nothing wrong. This has to work! It's not very professional to call a customer and ask them what they ordered. I get the CC confirmation from linkpt ok...but no detail order info.

Cancel that...it doesn't even work when I enter the order.

I really need some help with this. I can write my own shopping cart, and I will if I have to, but I really don't have time and I've got yours!!

Since you mention that the order files are not be created in your "data" directory... that means that your path to your "data" directory is incorrect. I would suggest using the full directory path when specifying configuration question #5 at the top of the ushop.pl script (the $data_directory).

Note: When I say "full directory path" I do not mean a URL beginning with "http" or "https". I mean an actual directory path such as:

$data_directory = "/www/youraccount/cgi-bin/data/";

Of course this path will be different on your server, so if you do not know how to access your directories via full directory paths, ask your web hosting provider.
