Disabledbydreamhost.php


#1

I use PostNuke as a CMS for our website. One file xmlrpc.php was renamed disabledbydreamhost.php.

I wonder why this was done?

It is a short file:

[code]include ‘includes/pnAPI.php’;
pnInit();

// Load user API for xmlrpc module
if (!pnModAPILoad(‘xmlrpc’, ‘user’)) {
die(‘Could not load xmlrpc module’);
}

/* create an instance of an xmlrpc server and define the apis we export
and the mapping to the functions.
*/
$server = pnModAPIFunc(‘xmlrpc’,‘user’,‘initServer’);
if (!$server) {
die(‘Could not load server’);
}[/code]

TIA,

Bill

It was probably done due to security problems. Make sure your software is up-to-date and check for known problems with the XML-RPC code.

You should also contact support directly, if you haven’t already.


If you want useful replies, ask smart questions.

You’ll probably get an email from Dreamhost, but it was probably for security:
