WMPU – BuddyPress – bbPress – XML-RPC Not working

  • I have a thread going on over at the BuddyPress forums, ( ) I’m posting the summary here in case anyone can help.

    “I’m running latest WPMU branch 2.7.1r1715, bbPress 1.0-Alpha-6, latest BuddyPress, r1324

    I an on a shared hosting service with

    WPMU works fine on its own, bbPress works fine on its own, BuddyPress works fine, however:

    When I update groups to “Enable discussion forum” the forum isn’t created.

    Users are shared fine, cookies shared, even admin login to bbPress works properly.”

    Having gone through everything (many times…), I ran the xml-rpc test scripts and get the following error:

    -32300 >> transport error – could not open socket: 111 Connection refused

    Has anyone got any ideas how to fix this?

    Sounds like port 111 (RPC) is disabled on your host. Have you tried contacting them?



    Hi mypop I followed your advice on buddypress. Thanks it all worked. Before I had mu 2.7 and I could unlock discussions and then allow it again. This created the forum etc. But when I upgraded to WPMU branch 2.7.1r1715, all else as you have it, I could not follow the procedure. The only way was to delete the group and re-create it.

    I am with Hostgator on a shared server.

    My issue now is to find why my logins are not shared.

    Gone of searching…



    Sorry to bump an old thread, but I’m experiencing a similar issue with BuddyPress, bbPress + XMLRPC.

    Using the XMLRPC debugger that mypop used (, I get this error:

    -32700 >> parse error. not well formed

    My issues are explained on the BuddyPress forums as well:

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Thanks for reading.



    I’ve fixed my problem.

    Turns out my bbPress xmlrpc.php was the wrong filesize.

    I uploaded the xmlrpc.php from the release package and now all is fine and dandy again!

    r-a-y, you’re a lifesaver. I was having the same problem (and pounding my head against the wall) until I found this post. Thanks.
