I'm trying to get into pingomatic to see what services is being pinged, if any. I know there should be a page where you can check/uncheck these. Unless I was dreaming I have been to this page at one point earlier. However, when I no try to go to pingomatic.com or http://www.pingomatic.com I end up at my own WordPress Error establishing a database connection window (even though the url says pingomatic and there is a little green icon there in the url field). Whats more, it's not even the error window for the correct weblog. It says "can't contact the database server at localhost" but my weblog is at http://memag.cookiefactory.no/
I do also have a local test weblog and I did a few posts on that before I knew about pingomatic so the local blog may have attempted to ping http://rpc.pingomatic.com/ at one point some weeks ago. Maybe that screwed up something.
I have now removed this link from the local weblog options. Have posted in both the local and real weblog since, the http-version still with the http://rpc.pingomatic.com/ link.
What I need to know is:
Why can't I go to http://pingomatic.com? Why dows this take me to my localhost (and why does it say error for that when the local server is up and running)
What should I ping: What should I add in Input Service? At the moment I have registred with Technocrati and that's it. I'm not the New York Times and I don't need to be registred everywhere, but showing up in a few usefull directories would be cool.
I really don't understand any of this at all. Can someone explain some of this to me? Thanks!
