  • Hello,

    here my problem:
    Yesterday i can receive payment by paypal, but since this morning i got this trouble:

    I received an email this morning from paypal:

    Check the server managing the Instant Payment Notification ( IPN) PayPal . The IPN sent to the URL failed:


    And on my wp admin statut system i got error message:

    Call wp_remote_post ( ) failed . PayPal IPN does not work with your server . Please contact your hosting provider . Country Code: 403

    i contacted my hosting about that:
    For then all are fine on they side.

    I didn’t change anything on my website to have this problem..I dont understand.

    Paser90 So with WooCommerce disabled it’s still trying to get:


    Instead of:


    Which you defined in your request. Something on your install is changing http to https.

    Do one final test with ALL plugins disabled. If you get the same:

    > You don’t have permission to access “” on this server.

    You can go back to your host and tell them you’ve ruled out plugins and to check the logs/server config to see if https is supported for remote requests.

    Thank you Mike,
    on my last post the test was with all plugins disable (include Woocommerce).
    Now my hosting investigate more closely, i have to wait from them, and i will keep you updated. Thanks again

    Hi Good day Paser90 can you resolve this issue?

    thank in advance

    Hi, I had the same problem and traced the response from PayPal.
    It would appear that while the text of the message says:

    You don’t have permission to access “” on this server.
    Reference #18.106cd417.1481310868.8bf3e97

    the http is a red herring.
    Output from http_api_debug shows that the URL still starts with https.
