I wanted a self-hosted Wordpress install, and being a fan of the overall simplicity of DigitalOcean, it being my VPS of choice for a long time, I went for the “1-click Wordpress install”.
I should say, it worked like a charm, and I was up and running very quickly. Kudos!
However, I would also like to have it work with the Wordpress app on my phone. And when I try to add the site, I get an error of the form:
Couldn't connect. Required XML-RPC methods are missing on the server."
I’ve spent some time on this before asking here, having encountered numerous “solutions” on StackOverflow etc that do not work.
So I have to ask a more fundamental question first: is it expected that the app can support the 1-click install? If not, it’s definitely a deal-breaker for me, I don’t want to use the desktop-browser version all the time for creating a new post.
I definitely would like to have DigitalOcean be my one-stop shop for this instead of turning to e.g. Linode, so I hope this confusion gets cleared up.
Much thanks in advance, Agam
P.S. some things I tried:
a2disconf block-xmlrpcand restarting Apache
