If you're having trouble with paypal IPN and you have mod_security on your linux server - El Forum - 04-10-2008

Then paypal will be blocked from accessing your ipn function.

If i knew mod_security better (or at all) then i would tell you how to create a rule to exclude paypal from it's ruthlessness.

But i don't.

So, you can create a .htaccess file and add this to the top of it (which will admittedly stop mod_sec working for the whole site)

SecFilterEngine off

I know people might say 'whats the point in having mod_security then' and i'd have to agree, but at least for the short term you can get paypal working properly.

Of course if anyone with mod_sec kung fu skills can shed any light on how to write a rule for it to allow paypal through that would be cool.
