Plugin Error: Couldn't find a Vanilla Forum at this url :/


I’m trying to install a WordPress plugin that will imbed Vanilla forums into WordPress.

My Vanilla forum is installed on the same server as my WordPress install. I can access it just fine from it’s URL. From what I’ve read so far, there are two likely causes to the problem:

  1. cURL is not installed on server

  2. server blocked/disabled loopback

I know DreamHost has cURL (or so I read), so I don’t think that’s the problem. Does DreamHost block loopback? If so, is there anyway to get this plugin working correctly?


Loopbacks may be a problem, but it depends on how they’re calling that. If you’re on PHP 5.3 and higher (I would suggest 5.4) it should be okay.
