Support » Fixing WordPress » Ecto Parse Error

  • Resolved 1MacGeek


    All of a sudden, I am getting parse errors while using Ecto to check on / post to my WordPress blog. For example :

    Method “metaWeblog.getRecentPosts” produced a server error: “parse error. not well formed”.

    This is the full error text Ecto returns. Here is what is bizarre about the whole thing :

    1. Previously rock-solid stable, and no errors.
    2. I have changed nothing on my end of the connection.
    3. My host claims they didn’t change anything.
    4. I didn’t change any WordPress file (or any file at all) on my server, aside from posting.
    5. On a separate test blog (hosted on the same server, same PHP, and same MySQL, same 2.0.6 WordPress install), everything works perfectly.

    The server is reporting :

    faultCode -32700
    parse error. not well formed

    I find a lot of half-solutions and “me too’s” on these forums, and the internet in general, but nobody has posted a specific, confirmed fix for this. Does anyone know what the fix is, and are you willing to post a specific, fully-detailed fix to this problem?

    Thanks for the help !
