I installed WordPress on the server where my website is
hosted. I want to use Contribute to work on that blog. When I try
to set up connections, I specify "other hosts" and I enter the URL
of the blog. After I enter that URL, I can click the "browse"
button and display the blog. When I clicke "next" I am asked for
the ID and password, presumably because Contribute has identified
the API connection. I enter the same ID and password that works
successfuly when I log in to wp-admin on that server. However, I
receive a message that Contribute cannot connect to the Blog.
I am able to connect successfully to my publicly hosted
WordPress blog. I identified the file to which Contribute is
connecting for the publicly hosted blog, and I found the same file
in my WordPress installation on my Startlogic server. However, when
I specify that path and filename in Contribute, the connection
fails, saying it cannot connect to the server.
I opened a ticket with my hosting service, Startlogic, and
the support techs believe I should be able to connect with the ID
qatharms that works fine on wp-admin. However, that ID doesn't
work, and Startlogic cannot tell me what is going wrong. Can
anybody here give me a clue?
