  3. This is the same error we are encountering. Have you had any response prasannarajak?

  4. Here at XML-RPC is always enabled by default so you don't need to enable it. I'll flag this thread for Staff assistance.

    These applications may ask for something like an XML-RPC (or API) endpoint, which will be your blog domain followed by “xmlrpc.php". So, for example, if your blog was at, your endpoint would be:

  5. We got this error "403:Incorrect username or password." for the blog We can able to login using the same username and password to, but for XMLRPC not working. This is happened from 20 November . Before it is working fine.

  6. Please be sure you're logging in with your username, rather than an email address. Let me know if this helps.

  7. I'm investigating this further and will keep you posted.

  8. Hi kathrynwp,

    Thanks for your reply.

    When using the email address and try the "wp.getCategories" method got the following error message:

    "403:Incorrect username or password.",

    And when using the username instead of email address and try the "metaWeblog.newPost" method got the following error message:

    "500:You are not allowed to do that."

    Please do the necessary, we can not post from 20 November, before is is working fine.


  9. Hi kathrynwp,

    The user posting was success with the OAuth method using the api token.


    Please advise.

  10. I also have the same problem now.

  11. We have the same problem as well. Please fix this ASAP.

    You cannot retire or cripple the XML-RPC API because stand-alone sites must provide that API. OAuth for standalone installations will never work because no web service is going to register its application with each individually installed blog.
