// Not sure what to do when there is an error with curl, send email? Store in DB and retry? TBD for now.
Either send an email or add to error logs with: $this->log->write .

The most generated errors being found on Opencart forum originates from contributed programming. The increased post counters are caused by redundancies of the same solutions that were already provided prior.

I'd rather have it try again every X minutes for a while before throwing an error. So an error might have to get passed to a Perl script, or stored in a DB with a crontab that picks it up. I dunno yet. Not too worried about it. I still need to make a screen, or modify the current order screen, so you can re-post an order too.

For now, I'm moving onto the next project.

$this->log->write will not throw any errors. It will rather capture background error operations and store them into your log file which can then be viewable either from FTP in your storage/logs folder or from your OC admin - > systems - > maintenance - > error log page.

Yes, but I need it to throw errors that are captured, and then the post needs to retry many times. Many larger stores use a shopping cart front end that connect to a larger back end, stuff like http://ordermotion.com - (I wrote my own.) Basically, the cart does its thing for the front end, but after the order is placed everything else is done by a completely different system. I was a bit shocked someone hasn't written a real time order post script already, this isn't much more than re-naming variables and posted them to another location.

So I need real time order posting, and if the post fails, I need it to retry on its own. If it still fails after a while, I need it to let me know the fail happened, and then I need a simple way to re-trigger the post for orders X to X when whatever problem happened. Pretty simple to just store the post url in a db to re-try. Also could add something to the order pages on the admin side that allowed a re-post. Anyway, just logging it to a file isn't going to be enough. In a perfect world there would never been an error, but when things happen and have you a few hundred orders that are hung up, there needs to be an easy way to re-trigger all the posts so that you can keep the customers happy and unknowing that anything went wrong.
