    Default ALERT: PayPal Express Checkout Error () (28) SSL connection timeout

    The recent two days I have received multiple

    ALERT: PayPal Express Checkout Error () (28) SSL connection timeout errors

    Anybody knows if PayPal is having problems with their servers? or it is the problem my site?

    I recently installed the "Authorize.net (AIM)" module so I have disabled the "PayPal Website Payments Pro" payment module, "PayPal Express Checkout" is still enabled. Could this be causing the problem?

    It would be something between your webserver and PayPal. Talk to your hosting company.

    My customers report having the same message (28) since a couple of days with Paypal Express Checkout (1.3.9h).
    My payment methods enabled are Paypal express, moneyorder and freecharger, for download products.
    As we are certainly not with the same provider, the problem is elsewhere.
    Paypal recently changes ?????

    I don't know if this has anything to do with the problem or if it is just a coinsidence but instead of completely uninstalling the "PayPal Website Payments Pro" module I now only disabled it. This seems to have solved the problem in my case.

    If you're hosted with FastHosts, they've been having problems for a week, unable to connect to Paypal.

    Seems Paypal cleared the return URL by updating something in their Sept/October 2012 maintenance.
    Go to your Paypal account, activate IPN, if you see no URL, set it as usual to:
    'http://www.YOUR_SITE.com/ipn_main_handler.php'.

    While all of that may be true, it won't have anything to do with the subject of this thread: (28) SSL connection timeout.

    That is what caused the "(28) SSL connection timeout" to appear on my shop.
    'http://www.YOUR_SITE.com/ipn_main_handler.php' disappeared from my Paypal profile and i touched nothing.
    Now Paypal transactions occurs.
