    Hello and thanks for your continued interest in the plugin.

    The error you mention simply means that the full node wallet that you are connecting to is not accepting RPC connections.

    This could be due to a number of reasons:

    1. A firewall on the server that runs the full node wallet.
    2. A firewall on the network of the full node wallet server. If you are using a hosting provider, you would have to contact them about this. They would have to set a rule to allow incoming TCP connections to your server at the RPC port. For Bitcoin core, this port is 8332 by default.
    3. It’s possible that in your .conf file, you may have not set correctly the rpcallowip and rpcbind settings. rpcallowip must be the public IP of your WordPress site, expressed in CIDR notation (i.e. not just the IP). rpcallowip must be equal to the public-facing IP address of the wallet server.

    Check out all three of these things, and if you still encounter the same issue, please let me know.

    my provider sent me this “VPS for hosting of websites. We cannot allow specific ports to the VPS since this affect the Node server on which your virtual one is located. any other option to bypass this?

    The plugin is built to communicate with the RPC port of the wallet. No other way around this. I guess you must find a different hosting provider that can add a firewall rule for you. It’s a pretty common request.

    No, unfortunately this is not something that you or I can do via WHM or cPanel. If the hosting provider intends to offer their services only for website hosting and not for applications, then you can’t circumvent their firewall.

    You can easily find hosting providers that are suitable for installing bitcoin core. When choosing a hosting plan, ensure to rent a host with sufficient memory, disk and bandwidth resources. For more information, see:
