eCart not writing back to database for a significant number of orders, despite successful payment at PayPal

Where is the URL that returns from PayPal set/configured, and if it’s set/configured then why does it use one or the other?

I’m going to have to drive back in to the office as I need to resolve this today as it’s causing all sorts of problems

I’m not clear why eCart allows this to happen in the first place, if it’s so destructive to the payment process.

I’ve no idea what the information in those links you’ve provided means as I’ve no knowledge of htaccess files.

I also really don’t understand why, if the URL is set/configured in confirm.php already, one assumes it must be, why PayPal or eCart is overriding that and just doing what it wants.

I appreciate the advice and guidance, as ever, thank you Ray.
