Connection Error on Hosted Blog
I have a blog hosted with Dreamhost at http://www.nbntech.com. I am running WordPress 3.0.1 and have a Droid2 with Android 2.3. I have the xmlrpc.php file in the same directory as index.php. I am running several plugins, including WPTouch and Wordpress Hashcash. I have XML-RPC enabled. When I try to sign up on Wordpress for Android I get the following error:
@1:6 in java.io.
Try disabling your plugins to see if that resolves the issue.
Disabled every plugin and still get the same error code. Another forum post suggests this may be a collision with Google Analytics for Wordpress, in which case - oh well, I'm not uninstalling Analytics (even though I did disable it for testing purposes with no change - probably because the header changes aren't removed if you simple disable the plugin). I've seen this error come up several times on the forum, but haven't seen any real solutions for it. Hopefully someone has a successful work-around, because I'd love to use this app. @mrroundhill - thanks for the feedback!
@mrroundhill - breakthrough! I found a suggestion you made to another user let me login and begin using the app. Instead of http://www.nbntech.com/content, which is where I moved the xmlrpc.php, I tried http://www.nbntech:80/content. Now I'm going to start turning my plugins back on one by one and see if anything borks! If it matters, the thread that helped was this. Thanks again!
Had same problem with my andriod 2.2 HTC phone. This was because I'm using a different URL for the blog than where wordpress is saved. I needed to make a copy of xmlrpc.php and save this at the root of the blog.
Edit the follwing part of the script:
/** Include the bootstrap for setting up WordPress environment */
to point back to the install location of wordpress, check file permissions and hopefully this will help.
