    That's the wrong URL.

    When payments are sent to PayPal by XenForo, the actual real IPN URL is passed (http://www.southeastcountiesbikers.co.uk/payment_callback.php) by XenForo.

    However, you do need one in PayPal. Just change the one in PayPal to the real one to stop the errors.

    Also, the IPN error in the log is expected. It's the way PayPal sends some transactions to the script.

    Thanks Liam.

    Maybe I'm being thick but I ca't see where on my PayPal account to change it.

    EDIT: Scratch that. I had to change to the classic site to find it.

    Did you move your forum from the forum directory to the route?

    If a transaction is associated with the old URL, it will continue calling back to that URL even if you change the default value. If you used to have the forum in /forum, this could be the case and thus ideally you'd want to do some .htaccess redirects to ensure callbacks to the old URL get processed correctly.

    I did move my forum Mike. Everything else seems to be working OK. I'm still a novice at coding stuff so would something like

    Redirect /forum/payment_callback.php http://www.southeastcountiesbikers.co.uk/payment_callback.php
    be correct?

    I believe that should be ok (assuming PayPal follows redirects like that; I haven't heard they don't at least).
