Correct spelling

happened

Correct spelling, explanation: happened is the correct form, because in contrary to such words as planned or beginning, the n in happened is not a part of the stressed syllable. Usually we double the last consonant when we add a suffix to a word ending with combination of consonant-vowel-consonant. Here, however, the accent is not on the syllable including n, therefore happenned is incorrect, because in such case we usually do not elongate this sound.

Definition of happened:
verb, past simple and past participle of happen, to occur

Incorrect spelling

happenned

Incorrect spelling, explanation: this form is incorrect, because in case of happened, accent is on the first syllable, not the one with n in it. Otherwise it would be spelled with double n, like planned. Despite consonant-vowel-consonant rule, which says that we double the last consonant when adding a suffix, here stressed syllable is crucial, because if there is no stress, we don’t elongate the sound, hence single n. Therefore happenned is incorrect, and the correct spelling is happened.
