We're using OSCommerce as our affiliate backend. We have websites spread between 2 different servers in 2 different locations. OSC db sits on one of the servers; both servers serve different websites however, all using the OSC db on the one machine. The server that does not have OSC db on it pulls order pages and backend pages from the OSC db transparently using a combination of Curl with PHP. The transparency issue is crucial for us. The problem is that affiliate tracking is not happening properly with orders placed from the one server that pulls the order pages transparently from the other server. The guy who's been working on it says it is most surely a cookie issue - the cookies just don't seem to get set uniformly. Some affiliates get their orders tracked properly; some do not. We've got to get this fixed ASAP. Thanks for your bids - PHP / OSC / Curl gurus who can help solve this problem fast will definitely find an ongoing relationship with us.
