Authorize.net Decommissioned URL


Recommended Posts

Maybe I am behind the times (severely) but I was just running some tests with Authorize.net this evening, and I started noticing my transactions were failing. So I checked the gateway log and noticed this error:


Unknown SSL protocol error in connection to certification.authorize.net:443


I contacted Authorize.net and they notified me that the current (at least in my installation) URL that WHMCS is passing to Authorize.net has been decommissioned in a couple days ago.


The new URL is :




Does anyone know the file I need to update (if I can update them / is not encoded) to get this done? Is this a hotfix that Matt will need to work on?

It seems so far that Authorize.net has changed / removed the testing URL that has been programmed into WHMCS. Looks like they are using the live URL as the testing URL too. However, Matt and I are not sure at this point and may need further testing.


Like I said, I was TESTING transactions in WHMCS (test mode) using Authorize.net and recieved this error.


Generic, were you running your tests in "test mode"?
