I’ve been building a site using the goldcart and successfully activated the gold cart with my API Key.
The address I was building it on was temporary, so it came time to move it to the real hosting location, thus I needed to deactivate my API key on the old site. This website (http://docs.getshopped.org/documentation/gold-cart/) says I should “simply enter in your API Key and select deactivate API Key” but they don’t give any indication WHERE TO DO THIS?!?!
So… I clicked “Reset API Key” and saw that it was in fact deactivated… umm ok..
I go to the new wordpress site. I setup the ecommerce plugin, active it. I upload my gold cart files to the ftp,then activate it.
I then go to the “upgrade store” and put in my old Username and APIKey…and hit submit. It hangs for about 45 seconds and the resulting screen showing a red error box with nothing inside it.
I feel like somehow I was suppose to “deactivate” my key by actually clicking something that says “deactivate”… not clicking “RESET API KEY”… because now i have a feeling my API key has changed because the old one seems to no longer work. WTF is going on? Do API keys change between websites? why is there a button labeled “RESET API KEY”?
TLDR: I’m moving my gold cart API Key to another site and upon submission it just errors out with no indication why.
