What a semi-final of Snooker between Williams and Hawkins. Every frame felt like the last frame of a final! 🔴⚫️
Found a solution to my problems with Micro.blog and Sunlit apps not discovering my XML-RPC endpoint.
All connections to the xmlrpc.php file were being blocked. I read a few posts when trying to find a solution that the xmlrpc.php file is a big target for brute force attacks on websites. So maybe my host had pushed out an update to block access to any xmlrpc.php files.
To fix this problem, I added the following code to my .htacces file and now everything connects without problem.
Allow from all
It would be nice if I could ‘Allow from’ Micro.blog and Sunlit instead of ‘All’ but this is something I can tweak at a future date.
Right now I’m just happy everything is working again correctly.
Still having problems. Signed out of Sunlit on my iPhone just test I could sign back in and I’m getting the same XML-RPC error. Micro.blog for iOS is still working, so I’m not signing out until I can figure out the problem.
Scratch that. Micro.blog and Sunlit for iOS are working fine. Still having problems with Micro.blog on the Mac.
Not sure what caused it but Micro.blog and Sunlit both complained that XML-RPC couldn’t be found yesterday. Re-installed a fresh copy of WordPress and it still wouldn’t work. Now everything seems fine without me changing a thing 🤔
