The error is saying:
"the page at: http://www.maderstrains.com says:
The security header is not valid"
Can someone help me fix this problem and tell me what I need to do? I have PayPal website Payments Pro in test mode right now because im trying to see if it will work, which it isnt.... I have entered the API Username, the API Password, and API Signature from my PayPal account. Do you ever need to request new API information? The last time I requested it was back in May of 2009, im not sure if that has anything to do with it or not?
Im using OpenCart Version 1.4.7 if this information is needed.
Reason: Topic moved
The regular PayPal works, and it transfers the customer to the PayPal website to log into their account and send the payment. Its the Payments pro that isnt working...
I did have PayPal Website Payments Pro a while back, and I do remember it worked. I had my website crash when my host did some changes and I lost everything because I did not have a backup. I had to start over from the beginning and build my site back to what it was. I switched hosts and am now doing backups every few days or after major changes are made to the site.
Im just not sure why it is not working now. Do you ever have to request new API information or should it stay the same? Like I said, its saying "Security Header Is Not Valid". im not sure what that means?
This time instead of saying "Security Header Is Not Valid" it says "This transaction cannot be processed due to an invalid merchant configuration."
Any idea as to what to do?
Thank you in advance
Did anyone find a resolution? I thought upgrading to version 188.8.131.52 would fix the matter but it didn't. Paypal and the API system is working on my other site (not running Opencart) but for some reason with my Opencart site it is not. If anyone can shed light on this, I'd be sooo grateful.
Thanks in advance,

Ok, good news! I went into my Paypal account and deleted the old credentials and requested new ones, then copy and pasted the new info into Opencart as I had before. I had to change my other site to work with the signature as well (not using Opencart) but that's appears to be ok so far. Then I purchased a test product (but not in test mode) from my main site (using Opencart) and SUCCESS!! I got emails and expected, Paypal IPN worked as expected, etc. I can't tell you how relieved I am!
So here's the only things that were changed to remedy the error:
1. Request NEW credentials from Paypal! My other Paypal credentials were working fine on my other site but were over 2 years old. Opencart MAY NEED NEW, RECENT CREDENTIALS.
2. If you have another site using PayPal Web Pro but using the certificate rather than the signature - CHANGE IT. Both/all sites MUST use the same system i.e. SIGNATURE METHOD.
Of course I'm not an expert or Opencart pro, this is just what has worked for me so I'm passing on info in case it may help someone else.
Now if I could just get some help on whatever is causing the new 184.108.40.206 version to run exxxtrrremely slow...

3- I create an API Credential and copy it to the Opencart Paypal Pro
4- I try the sand box test and the error is Invalid header security.
5- I try testing with Live account, real credit card and the error is This transaction cannot be processed due to an invalid merchant configuration.
I have spend 4 days trying to fix the problem without any luck.
