    In this example, I would like to start off by saying, the aMember migration from version 3 to version 4 went perfectly. aMember 4 is showing all the payments, and even went through the trouble of revalidating the validity of all payments, creating the products, and assigning users to the products.

    The problem is this >>

    IPN Url changed and PayPal is saying there fix is to force everyone to re-sign up again.

    I have tried forcing the path change by using .htaccess and a redirect. The IPN URL was also updated within the PayPal account, however -- FAIL. When grabbing IPN data for resubmission (visible in IPN history) ---- FAIL.

    Redirect 301 /am/plugins/payment/paypal_r/ipn.php /members/payment/paypal/ipn

    Fails

    Kind of at a loss here, and this is something that desperately needs a solution. Could you please provide mod_rewrite code so the URL post to the old address will post to the new script internally.

    Do you have new aMember installation on the same url as old one had?
    If so enable amember CP -> Setup -> Advanced -> Use v3 Urls

    Sorry, I guess urls are different. Leave old aMember installation at old location and in paypal plugin configuration just specify Resend IPN posts, so IPN messages will be resent from old install to new one.

    That is something we were considering, or simply moving the new installation to the old address and having the v3 Urls enabled.

    Does anyone have more detailed instructions on how to do this in amember v3?

    I am having the same problem with an upgrade to v4

    I have v3 in one folder and v4 in another folder. I want that the recurring payments are notified to v4 installation.

    Please help.

    In amember v3 CP->Setup/Config->Paypal there is a text box at the bottom of the page that says "Resend Postback"

    Do I need to write amember v4 IPN url there?

    Yes, exactly.
