paypal ipn not inserting in database

Recommended Posts

ok so i'm using this tutorial from here


Everything works fine but the insert to database function. 


It's the insert_data() function. I tried testing it but it inserts 0 in the test database so i think its not passing the correct values. 

class PayPal_IPN{
function infotuts_ipn($im_debut_ipn) {

        define('SSL_P_URL', 'https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr');
        define('SSL_SAND_URL', 'https://www.sandbox.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr');
        $hostname = gethostbyaddr($_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR']);
        if (!preg_match('/paypal\.com$/', $hostname)) {
            $ipn_status = 'Validation post isn\'t from PayPal';
            if ($im_debut_ipn == true) {
				// mail test

            return false;

      // parse the paypal URL
        $paypal_url = ($_REQUEST['test_ipn'] == 1) ? SSL_SAND_URL : SSL_P_URL;
        $url_parsed = parse_url($paypal_url);
	    $post_string = '';
        foreach ($_REQUEST as $field => $value) {
            $post_string .= $field . '=' . urlencode(stripslashes($value)) . '&';
        $post_string.="cmd=_notify-validate"; // append ipn command
        // get the correct paypal url to post request to
        $paypal_mode_status = $im_debut_ipn; //get_option('im_sabdbox_mode');
        if ($paypal_mode_status == true)
            $fp = fsockopen('ssl://www.sandbox.paypal.com', "443", $err_num, $err_str, 60);
            $fp = fsockopen('ssl://www.paypal.com', "443", $err_num, $err_str, 60);

        $ipn_response = '';

        if (!$fp) {
// could not open the connection.  If loggin is on, the error message
// will be in the log.
            $ipn_status = "fsockopen error no. $err_num: $err_str";
            if ($im_debut_ipn == true) {
                echo 'fsockopen fail';
            return false;
        } else {
// Post the data back to paypal
            fputs($fp, "POST $url_parsed[path] HTTP/1.1\r\n");
            fputs($fp, "Host: $url_parsed[host]\r\n");
            fputs($fp, "Content-type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded\r\n");
            fputs($fp, "Content-length: " . strlen($post_string) . "\r\n");
            fputs($fp, "Connection: close\r\n\r\n");
            fputs($fp, $post_string . "\r\n\r\n");

// loop through the response from the server and append to variable
            while (!feof($fp)) {
                $ipn_response .= fgets($fp, 1024);
            fclose($fp); // close connection

// Invalid IPN transaction.  Check the $ipn_status and log for details.
        if (!preg_match("/VERIFIED/s", $ipn_response)) {
            $ipn_status = 'IPN Validation Failed';

            if ($im_debut_ipn == true) {
                echo 'Validation fail';
            return false;
        } else {
            $ipn_status = "IPN VERIFIED";
            if ($im_debut_ipn == true) {
                echo 'SUCCESS';

            return true;

	function ipn_response($request){
	mail("enrique7979@yahoo.com","My subject",print_r($request,true));
	    if ($this->infotuts_ipn($im_debut_ipn)) {
			// if paypal sends a response code back let's handle it        
		           if ($im_debut_ipn == true) {
                    $sub = 'PayPal IPN Debug Email Main';
                    $msg = print_r($request, true);
                    $aname = 'infotuts';
                  //mail send

				// process the membership since paypal gave us a valid +
function issetCheck($post,$key){
return $return;

function insert_data($request){

$create_date=date('Y-m-d H:i:s');
$payment_date=date('Y-m-d H:i:s');

mysqli_query($con,"INSERT INTO `test`(`email`, `name`) VALUES ('$payer_email','$item_name')");

	$obj = New PayPal_IPN();
