    Hi there.

    I’m trying to install Jetpack in a self hosted wordpress that runs in Amazon EC2 and I’m obtaining the following:

    Jetpack could not contact WordPress.com: register_http_request_failed. This usually means something is incorrectly configured on your web host.

    The blog has a plain wordpress installation with no other plugins and I switched to the default theme just in case that was the problem. I also SSHed the server and did the following (using the apache user that is the one running the Apache server that runs WordPress):

    apache@host ~ $ curl -i -L --data 'test' 'https://jetpack.wordpress.com/jetpack.register/1'
    HTTP/1.1 400 Bad Request
    Server: nginx

    Content-Type: application/json
    Transfer-Encoding: chunked
    Connection: keep-alive
    Vary: Cookie

    {"error":"home_missing","error_description":"The required \"home\" parameter is missing."}

    It seems that the connection is being made without problems… What should I try next?

    Thanks in advance.
