This is a follow-up to #39432.

I am not sure if it is exactly related to the mentioned ticket, but I am having the exact same symptoms. I have scoured the internet for 2 days straight reading everything and trying everything I could try but I always end up with the same result.

If I hit :


It is just fine (most everything is for that matter), but as soon as I try to hit :


Or anything involving a query string I get the error of :

{"code":"rest_no_route","message":"No route was found matching the URL and request method","data":{"status":404}

The two plugins I am using WP REST API - OAuth 1.0a Server as well as Advanced Access Manager. If anyone has any insight to this, I would be greatly appreciative.

I tried to edit my post but could not seem to find the option to. I wanted to add that I have tried several things that other people have mentioned that have worked for them, such as using "?json_route=/posts?filters[s]=something" in place of /wp-json/ but unfortunately that doesn't seem to make any sort of difference, either using permalinks or not.

I have not been able to recreate this.

I have a local environment using Local by Flywheel. It is running PHP 7.2.9, WP 5.0, and Nginx (not sure the version).

I activated Advanced Access Manager v5.7.1 and WP OAuth Server v3.6.0 but did not change any of the default settings for those.

When I visit /wp-json/wp/v2/users?= or /wp-json/wp/v2/users?=j in a browser, I am returned the json for the one user on my site. When I visit those URLs while logged out, I get an empty set.

Does this only happen when authenticating through OAuth? Are there settings for OAuth or AAM that are involved. Does this still happen in WP 5.0?

Hi @instanceid,

I'm going to close out this ticket. It looks to be a compatibility issue with your NGINX config. If you are still experiencing this issue, I'd recommend checking with the Support Forums or the WordPress Stack Exchange.
