I had duplicated a site toni-english.com, changed the domain to toni-esl.com and host of the duplicate site. Epic nightmare.
NEWS: My MultiSite domain toni-english.com is the name of a famous porn star – YEARS of random blocks from some hosts, sometimes AT&T only from my home network, and other security issues solved!!
There were several huge disasters in this process starting with database corrupted dupe. Another post for those will come. Maybe – I didn’t do anything, it was 2 weeks of non-stop, daily, work by tech support at Host Hoot. I just prayed.
This is the final issue that remains unresolved for toni-esl.com. My host tech support was baffled. JetPack/WordPress.com connection error. I got 403 errors and “site not publicly accessible” when I pressed “Connect to WordPress.com” on the JetPack Admin Page.
I started a support thread on WP.org/JetPack plugin. This is the response I got from the developer.
Jetpack uses your site’s XML-RPC file to communicate with WordPress.com. Unfortunately I cannot access that file on your site at the moment: http://toni-esl.com/xmlrpc.php
If you use a security plugin to block access to the file, you’ll need to configure it to allow incoming and outgoing connections to /xmlrpc.php.
If you do not use such plugin, you’ll want to contact your hosting provider and ask them if they currently block access to your site’s XML-RPC file.
I hope this helps. Please get in touch again if you have any questions.
I will update this when something happens. I will let tech support mess with this.
