Blogger-XMLPRC API does not work with Multisite/SSL/DMZ combination
|Reported by:||michael_k||Owned by:||westi|
I have the following setup:
My WordPress Blogs (multisite) are set up behind a firewall that exposes the public address via SSL. Inside my DMZ I'm only using HTTP, so that's what WordPress sees. When I now try to access the blogger.getUsersBlogs XMLPRC-API, I get an empty result back.
I analyzed the WordPress source code and found out that the blogger.getUsersBlogs method in the file wp-includes\class-wp-xmlrpc-server.php uses another XMLRPC call to the wp.getUsersBlogs method in case of the multisite. I further checked and found out that this appears to be the only case in which WordPress executes a remote call itself to sevice the request. I then replaced the logic in _multisite_getUsersBlogs with the multisite part from wp_getUsersBlogs and it worked.
I aso found an issue that might be related: http://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/16402
But since the source code in the trunk still uses the regular IXR_Client, I'm not sure if this would fix the issue.
I attached my fix as a patch, but it's not refactored to remove code duplication since I don't have a dev-environment set up for WordPress.
