If you are using it, LinkPoint International strongly urges you to switch to LinkPoint API v.3.01



Make sure that the ccc_ssl.jar file is present in the /hsphere/local/home/cpanel/java_rt/ directory.

If it's not there:

  1. Contact LinkPoint and obtain the ccc_ssl.jar file.
  2. Put the lib file into in the directory ~cpanel/java_rt/.
  3. Restart H-Sphere.



  1. Select LinkPoint (Java Client) in the Add New Gateway box.
  2. Click the Add button.
  3. Fill out the form that appears:

    • Title: give a name to this LinkPoint connection
    • Server: the name of the LinkPoint server
    • Port: the port of the LinkPoint server
    • E-mail: the email address you provided on signing up with LinkPoint
    • Store Name: Your LinkPoint unique ID, sometimes also referred to as Config File
    • Test Mode:
      - FALSE: credit card transactions will be completed and credit cards will be charged;
      - TRUE: authorization requests will be sent for verification without settlement requests and credit cards won't be charged.
      * In Test Mode, all transactions appear to be processed as real transactions. The gateway accepts the transactions, but does not pass them on to the financial institutions. Accordingly, all transactions will be approved by the gateway when Test Mode is turned on.
  4. Click Submit Query
  5. In Edit Gateway, select the newly created connection and press Edit.
  6. Note the two new parameters that appeard on the gateway configuration page, Key File, and Certificate File. Put the key and certificate files on the control panel server to the locations suggested here.

Make sure LinkPoint provides you with a certificate. If you received key and certificate files in the .pem format, you must convert them into the .der format. To do it:

  1. Log into the CP server as the cpanel user.
  2. Go to /hsphere/local/home/cpanel/shiva/psoft_config/linkpoint directory. If this directory doesn't exist, create it:
    mkdir linkpoint
    chown cpanel:cpanel linkpoint
    chmod 700 linkpoint
  3. Run the following utilities substituting 'your_file' with your own:
  4. for certificate: openssl x509 -inform PEM -outform DER -in your_file.pem -out your_file.der
    for key: openssl rsa -inform PEM -outform DER -in your_file.pem -out your_file.der
