I am using the Postie plugin for a couple of WordPress sites. But in one site, it literally took my hours and lot of coffee to fix it. Note I was using the mail server as mail.mysitename.com (Read mysitename as my domain)
Just now I filed GSTR-3B for the month of August 2017. As a fresher, it gave me some hard time. Let me share..
To create a payment challan, I opened Challan page in new Tab. It helped me to fill IGST, SGST and CGST values without any error by looking at the GSTR-3B submitted details. After creating challan, I couldn’t make payment using Online payment option as my Browser’s Adaware Ad block plugin was blocking Net banking site from loading. If the bank’s net banking page is not loaded in the first attempt, it will not work even after a refresh. Hence I was forced to create a new challan and try after disabling the Ad blocker plugin. Anyhow after making the payment, I clicked on the redirect button and I was able to verify the amount in cash ledger. How to offset was the next question.
Whenever I tried, I got error “Either balance in cash/credit ledger is not sufficient to set-off the liability or the amount declared to be utilized from cash/credit ledger is not…”
This was due to a silly mistake. I tried to fill the amount in the second column (near to the liability amount) rather than entering in the Cash column. It should be filled under “Tax paid in Cash” column and not under ITC column as my whole GST was paid through Net Banking.
After offsetting the liability with the cash balance, I was able to file it using “File GSTR 3B with EVC” button.
So please don’t forget to disable your popup blockers before attempting online payment from GST portal and also to offset amount under Tax paid in CASH column after making the payment.

There are lot of posts explaining how to increase the 2MB size limit in WordPress Admin section.
If you want to import Demo content into WordPress, you will certainly see the above image. I am not writing about the common steps such as editing PHP.ini or .htaccess file.
A) I tried to make changes in PHP.ini by adding
upload_max_filesize = 16M
post_max_size = 16M
and it didn’t help.
B) Added lines in.htaccess such as
php_value upload_max_filesize 16M
php_value post_max_size 16M
php_value max_execution_time 300
php_value max_input_time 300
But no way! It showed a 500Error while loading the website.
Now I will share the trick that worked for me.
- Search Select PHP version (PHP selector) in Cpanel.
- Change post_max_size and Upload_max_filesize to 16M (or even more) and SAVE.

After upgrading Shop.wayanad.co.in from Opencart 22.214.171.124 to 126.96.36.199, I found lot of errors/bugs which needs minor changes in config files, vqmod re-install etc. and was fixed.
But an error which stalled me from editing/updating orders killed my time a lot. It was “syntax error JSON.parse unexpected end of data at line 1 column 1 of the JSON data”
After googling and wandering opencart forums, i found the post http://www.viethemes.com/how-to-fix-error-syntaxerror-unexpected-end-of-input-ok-when-editing-order-in-opencart-2/ which helped me to fix this error.
I had a big headache as my site wayanad.co.in showed only a blank white home page suddenly. Anyhow I was able to login to the backend. Also cpanel was working fine.
I doubted some error with Configuration.php; but it wasn’t. All my checks by disabling plugins, modules etc. didn’t give any solution.
I searched all logs and couldn’t find any vital error maker. I got non-SEO link to the Sitemap and all pages except homepage loaded fine!
The homepage source was showing just
When I directly typed wayanad.co.in, it showed a blank page.
Finally I found that there were 2 index files-index.html and index.php in my public_html folder! I don’t know when the settings changed and the site was loading index.html rather than index.php
I removed index.html and the homepage worked fine.
