Keywords: WordPress - Microsoft Azure - Technical issue - OtherDescription: Our POS vendor is Vend and they use the Woocommerce REST API which requires Basic Auth. Our Wordrpess uses PHP-FPM and that is the problem. It is not passing the header or stripping them or something. I intentionally moved our company website to Azure using the Bitnami VM installer to troubleshoot this problem instead of doing it on a live site. i've read just about everything i could find online to try and fix it and none of them have worked so far. I read the few posts in this forum and tried to make sense of those and could not get any of the solutions to work. I think the solution is ultimately going to be simple but i'm not getting anywhere with it. Once the problem is solved i'm going to make our Azure site live and drop our current webhost because they are of no help either. If they change us to regular PHP7 the API works but we want to stay current. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.
Here's the Support Tool key. Other s are right. No instructions when creating a new topic. It's just as frustrating as trying to find and answer to my problem.
Thank you for using Bitnami. Do you know when (which alias in WordPress) the plugin requires that basic authentication? We need to know if the plugin requires it when accessing /my_plugin in the application or if it requires it in any case. Once we have that information, we will investigate where you can include the configuration lines in Apache to have that Basic Authentication.
Thank you for the response. The entire problem was that i did nit have SSL and HTTPS going on the site. It was a staging site so i was trying to avoid it for now. I did find that you had a script i could run to attach SSL. I had a little trouble with that but got it going in the end. This made the modifications i had in place in the htaccess.conf work. Basic Auth is setup on the entire wordpress at the moment which i think is correct but i will go back to the htaccess.conf file and see if i can just point it to the woocommerce plugin. The Basic Auth is needed for the woocommerce store i have in wordpress.
Thanks for letting us know @garybronson,
Let us know if you need any help when changing the configuration.
