XML-RPC Blocked

Hello.

 

My Wordpress site at theproductnerd.com hosted on Godaddy is setup in Wordpress itself to allow xml-rpc, but I get an error from any outside app saying this is blocked.  Any suggestions?  Thanks.

Re: XML-RPC Blocked

Hi @dgadoury,

 

What wordpress platform are you using?  Permissions sometimes enter the picture in setting feeds, etc.   The business level hosting has much more flexibility than a managed platform, and this what may be is required.  

 

There are several xmlrpc exploits that are well-noted and documented if you google xmlrpc exploit.  Some hosting platforms (not just GoDaddy) limit the access to this service unless you are on a VPS or dedicated server.  This is for security of others on a shared server.  

 

Hope this helps,

James
