[resolved] WP feed parsing is not working (2 posts)

    Hello,

    For some obscure reason feed parsing in WP using SimplePie always fails. I have no clue what's causing that. The RSS widgets print this error message:

    An error has occurred; the feed is probably down. Try again later.

    But the feed is up and healthy.

    Recently our server was upgraded from PHP 4 to PHP 5, Apache 1.2 to Apache 2 and a number of other software packages. That error started occurring after the upgrade. But yet again I'm clueless as to what's causing it. Anybody got an idea?

    Well, ok, I've nailed it - PHP's xml extension is required for SimplePie to work. I guess it was turned off by default in our new configuration.

    Feeds are parsed correctly now except for Yahoo Pipes feeds. But that seems to be a bug in SimplePie.

    Topic is now resolved. A note to take: read the requirements and triple check configuration.
