Magento flips to USD while everything is setup in Euro

Magento flips to USD while everything is setup in Euro

Hi everyone

 

This morning we discovered a very strange error. On our webshop the currency is set to Euro only. This morning a customer bought something in our webshop and suddenly magento switched to USD, using a convertion rate. All prices were displayed in USD, while the products were all setup as euro. 

My backoffice panel wasn't reachable anymore, so I thought I had been hacked. But reviewing my settings, everything was ok, no files were changed and all prices were converted to USD on the frontend (but displayed in Euro). 

On the order of my customer this appeared like this: 

As you see, the normal price of this item was €49 euro, but everything was handled as it was USD. 

I suppose my webshop has gone crazy celebrating 2015-2016. (or is was drunk...). 

 

I cleaned my cache and everything went normal again. Prices were ok, backoffice was reachable again. 

 

This was a very strange issue. Does any of you know why this did happened? 

 

Thanks in advance!

 

Sincerely

 

Jen

Re: Magento flips to USD while everything is setup in Euro

I'm having this issue again. 

This afternoon, my webserver did exactly the same thing. 

  • Backend not reachable anymore
  • All prices displayed in USD.
  • Clean cache and clean session doesn't work

 

When I rebooted the server, everything went back to normal. Could this be a server issue? It has been working 2 years without any problems...
