MarsEdit error: mt.getCategoryList

My blog at zuiker.com uses Textpattern 4.8.0

I used MarsEdit to post to my blog up to recently, before upgrading Txp to 4.8.0 and before my host (OpalStack) switched me to a new server.

Now when I try to refresh the list of posts in MarsEdit or send a new post to Textpattern, MarsEdit gives the “Unexpected response code 500” related to mt.getCategoryList.

MarsEdit says it could be server. OpalStack says php is consistent with Txp and MarsEdit.

Txp Diagnostics showing no errors (except for all the update files as modified).

Where should I turn next?

Re: MarsEdit error: mt.getCategoryList

Did you check you php and server error log files, normally available via sftp?

Re: MarsEdit error: mt.getCategoryList

I have never tested RPC functionality and can not exclude having accidentally broken it when cleaning the public side code, mea culpa if so. I can try to restore what seems necessary, but have no MarsEdit to test. Could someone do it on Pete’s demo site please?

Looks like rsd was deprecated in 4.6, so there’s no head tag in there by default. Adding it manually lets me connect, retrieve some info, but when I post:

Edit: split error for clarity.

Re: MarsEdit error: mt.getCategoryList

Oh, what a mess. Thanks again, Pete, it looks like constants definitions are not included at this point. Investigating..

Re: MarsEdit error: mt.getCategoryList

Please try again, I’ve added (somewhat blindly) constants definitions.

Dumb question – I can reproduce this when XML-RPC is off (disabled) – is XML-RPC on (enabled) at your site?

Excellent! I am compiling PHP 7.3, when that’s done I will splat-and-repave dev-demo and see what happens.

Re: MarsEdit error: mt.getCategoryList

Another error when I attempt to update existing posts within MarsEdit:

Do you want an issue opened to track this, etc?

Re: MarsEdit error: mt.getCategoryList

When a post attempt is made on dev-demo, I get a MarsEdit error:

Can’t post for My Site because the server reported an error: problem_creating_article.

Nothing in PHP logs for posting, perhaps error in above post is a factor.
