Setup and Testing Week

The Setup Now that I have access to the production server, I had to pull the project’s code from our git repository into the server’s filesystem. Shortly after that, I needed to check if the server application could be built and executed. No major issues in that regard. Everything seemed Read more…

Getting there, I hope…

The major thing that I managed to get done by this week was the implementation of interfacing with the WooCommerce REST API. As a reminder, this is only done by the application when a new subscription for an organization certificate is made, and the customer also chooses the option to Read more…
