Wordpess Update Service "ping" Not working? (4 posts)

    Hi All,
    I'm pretty new to blogging but also try my best at being security conscious. I don't seem to be getting the update service working at all, however if i login to a site like http://technorati.com/ and then force a ping from their end on our blog, they are able to successfully index the site.

    The reason i speak about security above is because i followed several security guides all about wordpress to try and reduce the chances of the blog being hacked. And i just wonder if its one of my security steps that has perhaps caused the issue. (ie wp-admin folder completly locked down via htaccess file only allowing my network LAN ip address range access into the folder, etc)

    Also i see that wordpress i assume uses xml-rpc from different bits i've found whilst looking about, well i haven't got this compiled into my php - apache set-up and wonder if this is perhaps causing a problem, having said that i haven't read anything yet that says its required to be installed so....?

    If anyone has any ideas i'd be interested to here them.

    Kind Regards,

    BUMP - BTW
    Using wordpress 2.7.1
    I've also since set-up a second blog on a new domain with no extra set-up or config changes of plugins etc and still no ping's or search engines index.

    Did you ever get any feedback about this? Did you get it working in the end? For some reason after updating from something like 2.1 to 2.7/2.8 the Update Services have not worked for me either.
