No transactions or subscriptions showing in ACP module... - Group Subscription (PayPal)

OK, after a few hours and having now moved the entire website, blog and forum to the new server, I can report twothings...

1) The https, port 443 and URL rewrite no longer trip a 404. HOWEVER,
2) I still see no blooming transactions in the ACP.

Have a feeling this may well end up being a P/Pal problem causing knock-on effects for everyone, though without delving in to the technicalities, I have zero idea on that front.

It's also possible that your database might have problems from being installed on an unsupported PHP version.

What version of PHP were you running when you ran the forum installation script? If it was below the required version, I don't know what the consequences would be.

5.3.29, but then the php was updated to 7.2.23 after I had words with my host provider, so I ran an update of phpbb afterwards to be doubly sure of no issues with the forum..

Even a fresh install with only the PPDE and Group-sub Ext's garners the same issue of no transactions/subscriptions.

New server seems ok with URL Re-Write, Https and p443 under forced server URL settings.

Apart from the IPN issue, which, as I have hinted at, may well be the ultimate cause of the problem, it has been worth going through the resolution process as it has all but eliminated everything but p/pal now.

Are you using a business or personal PayPal account? Your issue may be related to this: https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/exte ... 11#p712111

Well damn, thats a new one on me.

I can certainly understand the issue if that is indeed the requirement. Had I have been aware of the fact, it would have saved a LOT of questions and time.

You should consider adding that "the paypal account used must be a business account for this extension to function correctly" on the description of the extension.

Also, just for clarification, what is/should be the paypal IPN "notification URL"

I will add that to the requirements now that I am aware of it. This is a fairly new extension and no one reported this issue during the beta stage. Sorry about the trouble.

You don't need to enable IPN or set the URL since the extension handles that for you.

Handy that the extension handles notification.

Also interesting that you didn't come across the issue during beta. Is it possibe that paypal "moved the goalposts" ?

No need to apologise. If you dont know, you can't pass on the information.

@ZlaYa07 I agree.

Sometimes it takes wider use outside of a test environment to finally resolve a specific issue. In this case, it was the requirement to have a business account with paypal, although I am not sure as to why they make that a requirement in the first place.
