Actually since you brought this up, is there any docs for the whole run from the command line thing? I am sort of working on a payment module for osCommerce to accept DASH. I want to design it first and then hire some people to write it. I would need to create a payment address per order, etc....so looking for some NOOB docs on getting this layed out.

UdjinM6 stated:
For task like you mentioned you would need RPC calls and I guess most of them would be the same as for bitcoin https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Original_Bitcoin_client/API_calls_list
You can also open console in qt-wallet and type "help" to get the list or "help somecommand" to get description (and sometimes examples) on specific somecommand command.

Wondering why you need to write smth at all to accept Dash on osCommerce btw... Have you seen https://www.coinpayments.net/ and their https://www.coinpayments.net/merchant-tools-plugins ?
I am ok with coinpayments and their 0.5% fee at the moment, but I want to open a Precious Metals store and the markups for this type of product is well below 5%. So if their fee increases alot then it is not worth it even as a hobby.

I would like to learn all of this so I am a little better edumacated (misspelling intentional) about the whole process. Most websites are PHP5 at the moment, and to build the local functionality is going to involve C++, Python, or something similar.

If everyone pitches in and lays down a process for how this should work, it may help others in the future.

I have browsed the Bitcoin API docs and I stand corrected. The following link shows how Bitcoin can get done via PHP: http://code.gogulski.com/bitcoin-php/index.html I will investigate this some more and figure out if it can be used for DASH without too much trouble.

The Lazy API documentation lays out most of the steps involved, https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Lazy_API, although I would add a final step to push the coins received to a cold wallet as soon as the transaction is completed.

HowlingMad you can have a look at https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/OsCommerce_Bitcoin_Payment_Module also. It's open-source https://github.com/weex/oscommerce-bitcoin and could be a good place to start. I just made few basic modifications https://github.com/UdjinM6/oscommerce-dash but have no idea if it really works (it's pretty old and I have no osCommerce knowledge at all) so you can give it a try but no warranties from me :rolleyes:
Thanks much for the changes. I will hook it up to Testnet and let you know. My testing will be in a week or so, I am getting killed by allergies at the moment.
