    I tried using the string
    curl --user login:pass zyx.com/blog/wp-content/update-feeds.php -d update=quiet

    from this thread

    which gets me this

    % Total % Received % Xferd Average Speed Time Curr.
    Dload Upload Total Current Left Speed

    100 81 0 81 0 0 96 0 --:--:-- 0:00:00 --:--:-- 96
    100 81 0 81 0 0 96 0 --:--:-- 0:00:00 --:--:-- 0
    update-feeds (2006-11-10 15:39:24): ERROR: Could not log in as '' (password: '')

    I have tried changing pass to password...to my actual password...to the password in quotes

    I've tried changing it to user admin:realpassword

    all of these still result in a password error

    any suggestions?

    I got this error as well after upgrading to wordpress 2.1 and feedwordpress 0.981, my other site http://www.b2bsee.com is running on wordpress 2.07 and feedwordpress 0.98 and the cpanel cron job runs fine. But my site http://www.coolwebpagetools.com/blog/ just wouldnt work. Radgeek has now posted the reason on his website, see the comments on the latest version.

    I changed the cron job to read as below.

    curl --silent --user username:password http://www.domain.com/blog/wp-content/update-feeds.php -d update=quiet

    curl --silent http://www.domain.com/blog/wp-content/update-feeds.php -d update=quiet -d log=username -d pwd=password

    just replace domain/blog/ with your path to update feeds and username to the username you want to use and password to the password for the username. It seems to work fine now.

    I used the standard link in cpanel cron so chose the time settings from the menus, if you use the advanced method you will have to enter the string as

    /usr/bin/curl http://xyz.com/blog/wp-content/update-feeds.php -d update=quiet -d log=peter -d pwd=abc

    where xyx.com/blog/ would be your path and log=peter would be your username and pwd=abc would be your password.


    There may be another update soon to 0.99 according to radgeek.
