View Full Version : Database Connection w/ PHP & Paypal IPN using Dreamweaver

09-22-2011, 12:41 AM
I am sort of new to this. I am using dreamweaver to connect to my database, and have people log into my site. I am also using Paypal IPN for when the user makes a purchase, and I would like to update my database when the payment goes through to change a field to 'paid' or '1' from '0', based on which username paid.
It seems that dreamweaver won't allow me to automatically update the database without have a form, which is not what I want. That would mean that an admin would be logging into the website and updating the database manually. But I am trying to do this automatically with Paypal IPN.
Can anyone help??

PayPal IPN works on your server with a number of programming languages. VB, VBScript, C#, Coldfusion, Java, PERL, and my personal favorite PHP.

If you can't program in any of them I suggest you hire some one. Playing around with money is no joking matter.
