    Hi

    On my site at http://www.2020racing.co.uk I get an error each time someone tries to subscribe which says:

    SetExpressCheckout failed: couldn't connect to host(7)

    Can anyone help please?

    Thanks

    Pabloalf, where is your site hosted? Which company? Which plan?

    It sounds like maybe there is no support for outgoing HTTP calls which are required to get PayPal Express working.

    You need support for CURL or file_get_contents or similar for

    Could be something else, but that is what it sounds like without more information.

    Hi

    Thanks for your reply.

    This is a reseller hosting account with http://www.heartinternet.co.uk. Full support for CURL and PPExpress working on a dozen or more of my sites, so bit odd that PMP will not work.

    The hosting company says:

    "If your script attempts to make an HTTP connection to a URL on the same server then that will fail. This is because loopback connections like that are blocked on our servers because they can be exploited by attackers."

    But surely this connection is to PayPal.

    Hope you can help.
