Ok so after a lots of trial and error I finally got my push server to prompt for permissions and all that nonsense.
For those who are having trouble with that issue its easily resolved by following the directions for the certificates (p12 and pen) files found on the apple developer website here.
So with that problem out of the way I now move on to the plugin issue. I have the plugin installed.
From the website itself (the one with the plugin installed), I get the prompt requesting permission but I am not getting the test pushes and after sending a test push I simply get a white screen located in the v1 directory.
