Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

See you all on the other side in a few days, and if you have any (non-technical) questions, please e-mail me at kirupa@kirupa.com. For technical questions, try to find a tutorial that corresponds to what you are looking for and post in the comments section of that page.

    Paypal Sandbox not working

    Hi guys,

    I have been fiddling with a paypal IPN script for countless days trying to return it to its working state in which i once had it. In desperation i downloaded their example script and for some reason, not even that is working.

    when i try responding to the sandbox (sandbox.paypal.com) server i get an HTTP error. But when i connect to there normal server (paypal.com) i get a validation error.. which is to be expected..

    So... is the sandbox server down ??? or is my script acting up ? Can anyone else VALIDATE from the sandbox server?

    Thanks for the replies...

    The most of the time the sandbox doesnt work and sometimes it does.

    Thats how i think about the sandbox ,

    further at the paypaldev forums , im sure you can get it sorted.

    Well i think it is to do with my server's dns not being quite right as it worked on another server.. oh well
