Hello,

I don't believe Microsoft is going to remove the feed but wont update the products any longer. We have submitted a bug to WordPress which has been set to be included in WordPress 5.9 release and should allow us to include the latest version.

Would you be able to include your custom feed and we can see if its possible to replicate the issue? I know some domains are set as fully trusted so this could be the cause.

Regards,

Trevor

Thanks for the suggestion Trevor but that made no difference

If we just have just the main url in we do get some items but as soon as we add custom feeds it stops working

The XML feeds are accessible directly on the server so not being blocked

We are using centralized solidcp server and we have lots of web servers connected to it. We experience the same issue described here but the strange thing is that we see it only on few servers. On some servers we see the full list with all apps including wordpress, joomla etc. and on other servers we see only the app listed in the second screenshot which nahosting sent. Do you have any clue what could cause such behaviour?

Thank you!

Hi,

Ok I have been playing around with this, as the ms application lists point to the repositories that no longer exist on github and wordpress, etc don't work as they no longer exist. I have therefore created a custom feed pointing to a website, that hosts the feed xml files and the files.

To get wordpress working you will need to do the following:

  1. Create a website or add a website folder that can be accessed by your solidcp servers.
  2. Copy the attached files to the locally hosted website on your server. extract the xml file into the same folder as the wordpress zip file (CustomFeed.xml file and Wordpress.5.2.1-IIS.zip)

     

  3. Edit the Custom Feed xml file and replace the 4 locations marked xx.xx.xx.xx with your websites url or ip address where the files are located. IMPORTANT NOTE !!!!the "ID" and "name" of the wordpress xml installation is no longer Just "Wordpress" the webapp gallery ignores any duplicate names and Microsofts xml files include the buggered WordPress Installer so it needs to be different !!!.
  4. Edit the webplatform urls in solidcp to the following :  Mainfeed : https://webpifeed.blob.core.windows.net/webpifeed/5.1/WebProductList.xml and add a custom feed  with the URL set to http://xx.xx.xx.xx/CustomFeed.xml.
  5. You should now be able to search for WordPress and find 2 WordPress installs one called "WordPress" and another called "WordPress V5.2.1 Installer" I put our company name before it in the Title Field, then it pops up before the old wordpress installs.

I have tried to upgrade it to 5.8 but there is an issue with the install, for some reason it doesnt edit the wp-config file with the db names etc, but I will work on it further tomorrow, but in the meanwhile this one is working now. I want to add other installtions in like joomla, oscommerce, etc but htis will take time for me to do.

Hey,

 

We have tested creating a custom feed for Wordpress but currently their is a bug in their build process for the WebPI wp-config.php. I have filed this as a bug for wordpress ( https://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/53377) and they have said it will be included in 5.9.

 

Once this bug is fixed you will be able to install directly using their WebPI zip.

 

Regards,

 

Trevor
