Title: PayPal IPN Fatal Error Message
Post by: AJMerritt on July 20, 2009, 06:32:11 am
Hello, I know this post has been up previously but I have yet to see anyone who has solved the problem.  I am using VM 1.1.3  Everything seems to be working but when PayPal is confirmed VirtueMart does not update Pending Orders to Confirmed.  My VM PayPal Config Test Mode is off but I keep getting the following email after each order.

A fatal error occured while processing a paypal transaction.
        ----------------------------------
        Hostname: www.paypal.com
        URI: /cgi-bin/webscr
        Connection timed out (110)
        Status: FAILED

PLEASE HELP I REALLY NEED TO GET THIS FIXED.

Wish I could help you. My problem was the test mode being on.

Your error message is slightly different than the one I've seen.  It appears to be due to a connection timeout.

Take a look at this thread:

...particularly the part about the notify script timing out.  Maybe that's your problem?

I downloaded the latest VM and copied the notify.php to my server replacing the current notify.php and it worked.

After changing and trying every thing I could find on this forum about this, it still was not working. So, I paid my host, Siteground, $50 to check it out and they figured out that all I needed was to upgrade my php to 5.2.9 (I was apparently still on 5.0)

I hope this helps someone else
