Support » Plugin: ActivityPub » ActivityPub Webfinger not working on Siteground hosted sites

  • Resolved rommieg


    Has anyone had any success in running ActivityPub on a SiteGround hosted site? I can’t get Webfinger to work. I have tried several hacks, but SiteGround blocks all Webfinger redirects.

    I contacted SiteGround support and their respose was:

    We have reviewed the case and unfortunately, we won’t be able to change our setup to meet the requirements of this plugin for access to the .well-known folder. This is a system folder with specific configuration which is why we cannot make changes on it as we are risking to break a lot of other services. 

    It would be best to report the problem to the plugin providers so they can consider implementing the option to change the discussed URL. 


    If you wish you can contact the creator of the plugin and ask if they can adapt their plugin to our hosting environment, and if they are unable or unwilling you can try to use an alternative plugin.


    Not very helpful. I really want to get this to work. Any suggestions greatly received.

    I have an open ticket with SiteGround, so can pass on any comments or questions.
