Hi,

I am trying to create a Recruitment based website that allows the user to post jobs for three different lengths, i.e. 14 days, 1 month etc.

Now I have it all working up to the point where paypal tries to send/carry out the IPN script. It does not send the values back to the database nor does it send the user to the Success page. When I look at the IPN history it says error response 404, but have looked at all the file paths and permissions and they all seem fine.

Here is my PostJobs.php page where the user enters the job information:

<?php
	require ('../jobAdmin/config.inc.php');
	include ('../includes/header.php');
	
	require (MySQL);
	
	$reg_errors = array();
	
	if ($_SERVER['REQUEST_METHOD'] == 'POST') {
	  	// ===================================== GET PACKAGE ID ===========================================
		if ((isset($_GET['packageID'])) && (is_numeric($_GET['package_ID']))) {
			$packageID = (int) $_GET['packageID'];
		} elseif ((isset($_POST['packageID'])) && (is_numeric($_POST['packageID']))) {
			$packageID = (int) $_POST['packageID'];
		} else {
		echo '<section class="wrapper">

I think either at PayPal you defined the wrong url for your script or the ipn.php file is not sitting in the right place. What happens when you type in the sitename.com/ipn.php to your browser. It should show a blank page and you can also put in debugging such as send yourself email.

Hi,

When I type in the URL on its own I get Internal Server Error / HTTP 500, so I am just wondering if it is something to do with the queries in the actual IPN script. The database didn't update nor did it insert the required information.

I have my IPN script in a subfolder below the main domain, so would that make any difference ?

Kind Regards

I think either at PayPal you defined the wrong url for your script or the ipn.php file is not sitting in the right place. What happens when you type in the sitename.com/ipn.php to your browser. It should show a blank page and you can also put in debugging such as send yourself email.

I don't think you are even getting to your script. That is your problem.
I think that 500 error might be because your directory is password protected, or a similar error to that.

Hi,

My Directories are not password protected though, could it be my SQL queries or the fact that the IPN script is in a sub-folder, and also
what about http | https issues since in my config script i have the base url set as http first ?
Would a session also work from a user entering job details then going through the paypal gateway and then being made available on the ipn script ?

Look forward to your advice and help

Kind Regards

I think you're overcomplicating this. As Abigail said, you need to be able to access www.example.com/ipn.php (or whatever the correct path and filename are) directly in your browser. This is the same as if it were any other PHP script. Understand what the proper URL is first, make sure that loads without error, then make sure PayPal has that proper URL.

Okay Larry, I hear what you are saying, but from past experiences the only time I have really had HTTP 500 internal server errors is when a query has not been done properly or theirs a problem with the php code(NOT the URLS) ?
The only only thing I can think of is the HTTP | HTTPS problems.

Larry is right Mr James. Do as he says first.

Recently I had a 500 error and the only reason was my directory was password protected. When I updated the user/password it worked. Maybe there are other reasons to get a 500 error.

After you can access your script and verify your url with PayPal then worry about what else might be wrong.

Hello James. I'm not saying you're wrong, because you've seen what you think you've seen, but based upon what I know, it makes no sense at all that query errors in a PHP script would case a 500 error. In 12 years of PHP development, I've never seen a problem with a PHP script's queries causing a 500 error.

Hi,

As always I appreciate your input/views and opinions. I got in touch with my webhosting provider and they tell me its a shared
hosting package and their is a certain URL you have to use. Now if I change my IPN script URL in paypal will that always try the
old URL instead of the new one my hosting package gave me ?
So I'll have to try and carry out another transaction with the new URL ?

As always thanks for your help...
