400 Bad Request

I think I got the broken group registration fixed, and I tried to fix the https paypal return problems. But now when I try to do a registration and confirm by going to paypal (either auto-redirect of clicking the button) I get this error message:

Bad Request

Your browser sent a request that this server could not understand.
Size of a request header field exceeds server limit.

And I still don’t see any attendees marked as “paid” even though I paid for several and got confirmations.

Can you get to the PayPal website at all (by typing in the address directly)? Sometimes that happens to me and I have to clear the browser cache or restart the browser.

As far as payments not getting updated. Were payments getting updated before now? If so, and nothing has changed. It could be an issue on PayPal’s end. I have heard that PayPal has been having issues over the last 2 to 3 weeks.

Here are some discussions on the matter:

OK – I tried it in firefox and everything seems to be working now. Went back to Chrome, and that test worked. So – either something was fixed over night (if so, thank you!) or restarting the browser did the trick.

I’ve had similar issues when testing PayPal with Chrome, usually clearing the cookies/cache will do the trick.
