  • xmlrpc.php only accepts POST requests. Your link checker probably asked for it using a GET request which would generate a “Method Not Allowed – 405” response in whatever link checker you’re using.

    Bottom line: xmlrpc.php probably isn’t really broken.

    If the 405 error is being generated by a GET request. ignore it. Or add *xmlrpc.php to the exclusion list in your link checker so it doesn’t show in the report.

    Thanks Clayton, which website do you usually use to check/analze pages that does not use the GET request to check up on the link?

    I don’t use a website service for link checking. The results will always be the same if xmlrpc.php is requested using the GET method (which all browsers and link checkers normally do). The 405 error on xmlrpc.php can just be ignored.

    In fact if you visit http://www.chrisontour84.de/xmlrpc.php in your browser, you’ll see this message: “XML-RPC server accepts POST requests only.”

    That’s normal behavior.

    Ok cool, so ill just ignore that one.

    Now my site seems to be fine other than the Mobile Friendly part.. but I think for small personal blog like mine using an outdated theme, it is okay 🙂

    Too bad the Choco theme doesnt have a response version of it! Or did i miss it maybe? 🙂
