    You don't have your install in a subdirectory running from root, do you? That was my problem - had to include the directory to make it work

    And do you visit myurl.com/wp to see your website, or just myurl.com ??

    This combination worked for me:

    Find out the "real" URL of your self-hosted WordPress installation (ie. the FTP folder).
    Example: my WordPress blogs is "http://blog.myhomepage.com/login.php"
    But the FTP folder is "http://www.myhomepage.com/Wordpress_01/login.php"
    So you need to find your real URL.

    When you activate the WordPress channel in IFTTT, be sure to point it to
    URL_to_your_Wordpress/xmlrpc.php NOT to URL_to_your_Wordpress/login.php
    put something like this in the URL field when activating the IFTTT wordpress channel: "http://www.myhomepage.com/Wordpress_01/xmlrpc.php"
    Then IFTTT should connect to your WordPress.

    Problems with IFTTT?

    I had to disable two-phase authentication to get IFTTT to work.
    Also, I bad to use the internal name of myblog.wordpress.com instead of http://www.myblog.com

    Does that help?
