Need Assistance with xmlrpc.php
« on: March 13, 2019, 11:47:51 AM »
When I attempt to add a WP site in the blog list, it comes back and says

Error: http://pastlifehouston.com/xmlrpc.php

I found a pugin but it requires an IP address of the server posting the content. I pinged swipelviral.com, got an IP and added it to the list, but it still did not work. I see a lot of posts about security concerns with turning this feature of WP on, though others say that the security around it has been improved.

To be safe i could use this plugin to turn it on when I need it, then off later, but I have not been able to turn it on.

Obviously the auto posting is an important feature here, so I'd like to get it working.

Thanks,

Mark

Years ago XML-RPC - in some cases - could make a site a bit less secure.

However it's not a problem these days, unless your hosting company is one of those who don't really understand it and how to use it.

You cannot autopost to a blog without it, so you'll have to decide whether to enable it and use Swipe Viral or do without the benefits.

It may even be that you need more than a plugin. Your hosting company might have added security rules that prevent XML-RPC from working. If that's the case you will need to speak to them to get it enabled.
