htaccess protection but uploading via iPhone / Live Writer? (5 posts)

    Hi! I just want to ask if it's somehow possible to run a private wordpress installation via htaccess but enable uploading new blogposts via my iPhone and Windows Live Writer. Can I just deny access to all files except one or so? Would that infect the security? How would the htaccess file look like?

    In other words: Is there any way I can upload new posts (pictures+text) with my iPhone to a private blog securely? htaccess is not really necessary but I heard it's way more secure than any plugin (except the transfer of username and PW in plain text / public networks)

    Any help is appreciated

    can at least someone confirm that it's not possible? :)

    I'm going to bump this as I am currently having the exact same problem. I want to have a password protected blog that works with Windows Live Writer. I have tried htaccess and some plugins but it does not seem to work. Surely someone most have figured this out?

  4. You need to disable the password protection for the xmlrpc file to allow incoming posts and such.

    <Files xmlrpc.php>
    Allow From All
    Satisfy Any

    I could NOT figure out how to make this work so I found a plugin


    Which seems to work fine.
