Currently I own several developments in C# in .Net.

These applications frequently updates information in WordPress using XML-RPC. The aim of these developments is to update information in an Extranet from local systems.

Sometimes the hosting blocks our IP because it believes that we are a robot that is doing something malicious. But that's not the reason, simply we are updating some data.

My question is for those who have worked with such updates via XML-RPC. Do you have any recommendation to avoid these blocks? Thank you!

  • tell the hosts mark said they are idiots ;) yeh, there is no other way to describe this kind of mutilation of core worpress functionality at the hosting level :( Oct 5, 2016 at 13:28
  • In the hosting even they realize that it is an XML-RPC. He says that we are sending many emails. So I try to find a way to sidetrack their automatic locking rules. Maybe by limiting connections or frequency. But I wanted to ask you if there is any good practice recommended.

  • obviously you should not flood requests to keep the server from overloading, but if you wait for a response before sending the next one, you should be ok in my book Oct 5, 2016 at 13:35
  • Thanks Mark. I am trying to put a limit to not flood, fore instance no more than 30 updates.
