Hi,

Use Version 3.2.9. with Joomla 3.8.

Try to open the Joomla backend i got the error
OpenSSL SSL_connect: SSL_ERROR_SYSCALL in connection to free.currencyconverterapi.com:443

In your article
www.joomdonation.com/forum/search.html?q...&childforums=1&ids=1
titled "EShop version 3.2.5 released" you wrote

"As you may knew, EShop is using free API service from free.currencyconverterapi.com/ to update currency rates automatically. They require API Key to use now. It is also Free. If your store supports multiple currencies, then let's update it to 3.2.5 now..."

So is it possible that your component seems to cause the error?

Wrong category

It seems Joom Donation 5.5.0 causes the error.

Component uses "Free Currency Converter API" which only supports https protocol

i made the following change in "\components\com_jdonation\controller\controller.php" to solve the problem.
static function convertCurrency(){
..
	$http = JHttpFactory::getHttp();
        $url =  'https://free.currencyconverterapi.com/api/v5/convert?q='.$cur_from.'_'.$cur_to.'&compact=ultra'.'&apiKey='.$apiKey;
        $response = $http->get($url);
 ..}
