[resolved] Problem with JetPack: register_http_request_failed (5 posts)

    Hi there.

    I'm trying to use last version of Jetpack in a self hosted wordpress that runs in Amazon EC2 and I'm obtaining the following when trying to connect to WordPress.com:

    Jetpack could not contact WordPress.com: register_http_request_failed. This usually means something is incorrectly configured on your web host.

    The blog has a plain wordpress installation with no other plugins and I switched to the default theme just in case that was the problem. I also SSHed the server and did the following (using the apache user that is the one running the Apache server that runs WordPress):

    apache@host ~ $ curl -i -L --data 'test' 'https://jetpack.wordpress.com/jetpack.register/1'
    HTTP/1.1 400 Bad Request
    Server: nginx

    {"error":"home_missing","error_description":"The required \"home\" parameter is missing."}

    It seems that the connection is being made without problems... What should I try next?

    Thanks in advance.

    Could you download the Jetpack compatibility plugin, run it, and email the results to us at support@jetpack.me? http://plugins.trac.wordpress.org/export/617773/jetpack/branches/jetpack-compatibility-test.zip

    Do not post the results. The results may contain sensitive info, which we need for debugging, so please email them.

    Thanks!

    In case you are reading this, what was happening in my case was that the blog wasn't public yet - I was browsing it by modifying the hosts file.

    It looks that the communication must be possible in both ways, and I didn't recall about it after a while :-).

    Thanks a lot for your support and best regards.

    Hi Tim,

    I know it is resolved Post. but I am not getting a reply in a jetpack support.

    I am having a same problem. I have hosted site on Godaddy on Windows server. There is a blog in wordpress.

    Jetpack was working quite good until I update wordpress.

    Now I am getting this error.
    Jetpack could not contact WordPress.com: register_http_request_failed. This usually means something is incorrectly configured on your web host. Operation timed out after 15008 milliseconds with 0 bytes received

    Pl guide
