MainWP and ManageWP Connection Issues

If you try to add websites hosted on LaunchCDN to either MainWP or ManageWP, the websites might refuse to connect.

This is because both of these uses xmlrpc.php to interact with sites; however, LaunchCDN's server configuration restricts access to that file.

In order to allow the connection, you will need to install the "Rename XMLRPC" Plugin (https://wordpress.org/plugins/rename-xml-rpc/) and create a custom named xmlrpc.php file

If the site you are trying to connect to is on StackPath, their Web Application Firewall may also prevent connections. Please note the following:

  • For MainWP, if you are still unable to connect, we may need please contact support to have site moved from StackPath to another CDN.
  • For ManageWP, please contact support to have ManageWP's bot enabled in the list of "Allow Known Bots" in StackPath's WAF
