After moving my forums (still on same domain, just different directory with different hosting) I am receiving error notices from PayPal.

Error message from PayPal:

Please check your server that handles PayPal Instant Payment Notification (IPN) messages. Messages sent to the following URL(s) are not being received:

forums/thankyou.asp?a=0&c=USD



Could anyone tell me how to correct this? I am no longer using that directory and I can't seem to determine how it's linked?

This url is contained in your paypal form, it is called the notify_url and is set to

<input name="notify_url" type="hidden" value="XXXXXXXX/activity/thankyou.asp?a=0&c=USD">

This is the page that Paypal will send payment notification data to.

Huw, since the link PayPal sent in their notifications refers to the former directory I am now wondering about this: Since I have a member who has set up a monthly donation through the former forums, which used the different directory, is it possible that old link is connected to what PayPal is using?

I only have the one member that has set up the monthly donation and it's extremely rare that anyone else does a donation. If the above is possible I should just ask that member to set up her donation again through the new forums, agree?

Yes, that sounds like it should work
