Unbelievable how ridiculous this issue actually is!
Contacted my hoster once more and they looked into it again, just to find out that they didn’t do a proper job in the first place! (I should have known this)
Long story short, it’s all running smooth now after the host fixed the server config.
Please ignore my previous post.

Sorry for not being precise.
One thing to make sure is to check the “General Settings” of your WordPress and make sure that the value in the following two fields are consistent:
WordPress address (URL)
Blog address (URL)
I was just wondering whether a sub-directory in the wordpress URL only would count as “inconsistent values”, hence possibly corrupt my estore installation.
I take your answer as a “no worries, your set up is fine!”
Thanks for your help!

Hi! Just to keep this thread going
My shopping cart is not working all together, meaning I cannot add items to it. Here is my troubleshooting so far:
1. It worked fine as long as I had my site localy hosted. With the same plugins installed and the theme. -> assumption: probably the php session.
2. Did my homework in the forum and sent this to my hosting provider (ipage.com):
Occasionally a server may not have it’s PHP session configured correctly. Please note that you won’t be able to use a shopping cart software without the PHP session working correctly. It is your hosting provider’s responsibility to give you a server where the PHP session is setup properly. Contacting your hosting provider and requesting them to fix it is a good idea.
Making the PHP session to work is not very hard. You mainly have to make sure the following two things are in place:
1) Check if your server’s PHP config is set to allow sessions.
2) Check to make sure the session save path has been configured correctly. This is just a matter of adding a line similar to the following in the php.ini file:
session.save_path = /tmp
It is best to contact your hosting provider so they can do this for you. All you have to do is request them to fix the PHP session issue on your server and they should know what to do.
Got this answer:
I have set the ‘session.save_path’ in the ‘php.ini file in the account. So, please check the website from your end.
3. Checked the function again, but the issue remains. Just to make sure, I also deactivated all my plugins, emptied the cache and tried it again. Same result.
Now I’m at my wits’ end. Can you please look into this for me? You’ll find the cart here:
Cheers, and yeah it is an awesome plugin!

Hi and thanks for your answer!
I understand your concerns with this, but I think a simple checkbox is not too complicated for a customer to handle. I’m actually quite used to this feature myself from sites where I shop.
Yes, it would work with the double opt-in mails but I don’t want to spam my customers with too many emails. Especially if they don’t want them…
Anyway, I can do with a workaround for now, but would like to raise my hand for an implementation in the future.

Does it matter if i use a subdirectory like this?
wordpress URL: [http://www.domain.com/wordpress]
site url: [http://www.domain.com]
Note: www for both URLsFebruary 22, 2013 at 11:47 am in reply to: eStore Feature Request: Customer Mailing List checkbox on cart #46518
Yeah, I would also be very interested in this! Any new developments here?
