Get WordPress Jetpack working on ICDsoft hosting (2015 FIX)

ICDsoft upgraded their Apache server this year, so the OLDER version of this code you may see floating out on the internet will not work. This updated CURRENT CODE below will fix the problem:

WordPress Jetpack

  1. Install WordPress JetPack. FIX below for ICDSoft webhost customers (for whom Jetpack is blocked out of the box):
    1. Problem: Error message: ‘site_inaccessible – Error Details: The Jetpack server was unable to communicate with your site [HTTP 412].’
      1. Explanation from ICDSoft Tech Support: We have a special set of rules on the server that are employed to prevent most popular hacking attempts. The xmlrpc.php module of WordPress very often is a target of hack attacks, that’s why we have a rule that disables the access to it. Please add the following code to the .htaccess file in the WordPress directory of the account:
    2. Solution: Go to control panel, click file manager, go to wordpress install directory, open .htaccess file to edit.
    3. Change security setting to let JetPack talk to WordPress.com by pasting the below code into .htaccess. Click save, and it will work! You may have to redo .htaccess edit on wordpress upgrades etc, not sure.
      <IfModule security2_module>
      SecRuleRemoveById 114
      </IfModule>
