So I’ve been trying to get WordPress – Android Market to work. I keep getting:
HTTP status code: 412 was returned. Precondition Failed.
I’m gonna keep trying for a little while. Apparently folks hosted on ICDSoft (which I am) are having trouble. I’m not sure I want to hack my WordPress code to make it work. I’ll keep looking.
Turns out FactoryJoe has a fix, but it warns that it makes your site vulnerable. Don’t do this.
Finally, I found this post that tells you to create a .htaccess file via cpanel (WordPress doesn’t create one by default) and put the following code in it:<IfModule mod_security.c> SecFilterRemove 114 </IfModule>
That did it. By sharing that I’ve done this, I hope I don’t get hacked. I can always have my site restored I guess. I also found that ICDSoft has a hosting rule that blocks access to a particular file that WordPress needs (xmlrpc.php, XML remote procedure call, I presume!) Squamloom posted about it first.
