Support » Plugin: WP-Strava » WP Error 429

  • deltadc


    I installed your fantastic plug in last night and it worked great, looked great, I love it. But then it seemed to break. I’m getting an error message. I suspect this is coming from Strava itself?

    I have a Bitnami installation of running on an aws instance and cloudfront for serving. Here is the exact error message in full.

    WP Strava ERROR 429 Too Many Requests - See full error by adding
    define( 'WPSTRAVA_DEBUG', true );
    to wp-config.php

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    Thanks @deltadc – there is a limit on the number of requests, you can get the details here:

    I might actually try to capture this info on the next release so you can see it in the settings page and know how close to the limit you’re getting.



    Do you think it could be related to using something like cloudfront as a CDN? There is no way I should be getting that many transactions. I get about 200 visitors per day at the moment.



    Hello again jrfoell,

    I turned off the cloudfront CDN in case that was causing the problem and I’ve enabled various visit tracking software and my daily visits are in the 120-200 range, so I should be very safe on that front. I shouldn’t be coming anywhere close to their rate limits. So I guess I wonder if that’s actually the problem?

    I installed your wp strava app just using the wp installation tool. Could you point me to the location where it is installed locally (e.g. the path relative to the wp installation?) or is it not that generic. I’m a reasonably capable programmer, so I thought perhaps I could take a look around and see if I could get it to output the errors to a text file for my own edification.
