  • I switched to Paypal Express Checkout and it works now.

    Hi, Lusch.

    Sounded like you needed to have the SSL certificate installed for the server. PayPal Express doesn’t require an SSL so you’re okay now.

    I have PayPal Express selected and I am receiving “(Error code: ssl_error_rx_record_too_long),” when I click on myAccount /Edit.

    Is my PayPal API key interfering?

    It sounds like your site is still trying to load the page through SSL/HTTPS, but your server is not setup for that.

    When you choose PayPal Express, it shouldn’t load the page over HTTPS.

    Do you have another plugin that may force SSL/HTTPS? If so, disable or alter them.

    Do any of your pages still have the “besecure” custom field? If so, remove that custom field.

    Try the above. If you still have issues, you can absolutely tell PMPro to always use HTTP by adding something like:

    function my_pmpro_besecure($besecure)
    $besecure = false;
    return $besecure;
    add_filter("pmpro_besecure", "my_pmpro_besecure");

    However, if something else on your site is loading HTTPS, you will still have problems.

    Hi strangerstudios,

    I deactivated all but PMP. Still I get this error. This server has PHP 6.0.

    When trying to create a new membership level and click on Add New Member, I get this:

    Warning: Creating default object from empty value in /homepages/26/d395080616/htdocs/ on line 223

    I haven’t tested our plugin on PHP 6.0.

    Thanks for the heads up on the warning. I’ve fixed that warning of yours in the next update (not sure when it will go out). If you want to patch it yourself, you can add this line above line 223 of /adminpages/membershiplevels.php:

    $level = new stdClass();

    Or you can lower your PHP settings to hide warnings and notices.

    I can’t tell anything else about your SSL error without more information. Did you try the fixes I suggested?

    If you sign up for support at, I can get your server details and login to look around and fix this for you.

    Ok, that code worked – thank you. I am happy to support your work rather I had a problem or not.

    Again, thank you,
