[resolved] Jetpack xmlrpc.php Help (2 posts)

    I'm trying to connect my WordPress site to Jetpack and am getting a message that says that Jetpack is unable to connect. After doing a bit of searching I think I figured out that is it because I currently have xmlrpc.php blocked in my .htaccess file to try to negate that xmlrpc probing hack attempt that is still ongoing.

    Below is what is currently in my .htaccess file. Is there a way to reconfigure this so that Jetpack is let through, but all others are blocked?

    <Files xmlrpc.php>
    Order allow,deny
    Deny from all
    </Files>

    Thanks,
    Lori

    Hi Lori,

    You could reconfigure it to allow connections from our servers. Our current IP block is http://whois.arin.net/rest/org/AUTOM-93/nets

    Cheers!
