Stripe e-commerce with Ubuntu

Posted November 26, 2014 4.2k views

Hi there,

I can’t find any info on this.

I think since moving to Digital Ocean and building my own server, Stripe payments on my website have stopped working.

Is there anything I need to do/install?

My website is

Thanks in advance

This can depend on hundreds of different factors, but essentially stripe on DigitalOcean should work the exact same way as on your old host. You just have to make sure it’s configured correctly on your droplet.


On my old host it just “worked” when I configured it through Wordpress.

I didnt realise it wasn’t working, but it seems like since moving to Digital Ocean is when it stopped working.

Are there any components I need to install?

@admin721590 which WordPress Plugin are you using for a shopping cart and what’s you’re setup? Are you using a control panel such as cPanel, did you setup a custom stack, use a pre-made image from DO, or follow a guide?

That’ll help us to better determine what’s preventing the integration from working as it should. You should also check your error.log file (location depends on your setup & configuration) as it should be pushing something to write if there’s an issue.

I’m using Nextgen Pro (They’re also looking into the issue)

I’m not using any kind of control panel, I did the quick install of Wordpress with Ubuntu following guides.
