My GoDaddy-hosted web site won't let me configure my WOD integration

Follow

If you have a website built on the WordPress.org platform, you are able to use the Wodify-WordPress integration to send your daily WODs over to the blog page on your site. Wodify uses a plugin called 0Auth to connect to your site and posts these workouts each day. 

 

Unfortunately, GoDaddy often applies special security settings to their WordPress-hosted pages out of the box. In order to get things working with Wodify, you'll need to reach out to them and ask them to update the .htaccess file on your web server to give Wodify permissions to post to your site via 0Auth. Follow these steps below in order to get things working!

 

Warning: Make sure you've followed the steps to integrate with your WordPress account first. Only follow these steps below if you experience an error connecting to your site. Otherwise - this is a waste of your time!

 

Here are the steps to get your GoDaddy-hosted WordPress site to work with Wodify:

  1. Login to your GoDaddy account. Most customers will go to http://account.godaddy.com
  2. From your profile, click Account Settings > "Login & PIN"

  4. Click the HELP Icon at the top right, and scroll down to click the "Chat with us!" button

  5. State the following to your chat agent:
    Hi - I need to update the Wordpress section of my .htaccess file in the public_html folder on my [insert your web site name] server to the following:
    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteCond %{HTTP:Authorization} ^(.*)
    RewriteRule .* - [e=HTTP_AUTHORIZATION:%1]
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [E=X-HTTP_AUTHORIZATION:%{HTTP:Authorization},QSA,L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [E=X-HTTP_AUTHORIZATION:%{HTTP:Authorization},QSA,L]
    </IfModule>
    # END WordPress
     
    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteCond %{HTTP:Authorization} ^(.*)
    RewriteRule .* - [e=HTTP_AUTHORIZATION:%1]
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [E=X-HTTP_AUTHORIZATION:%{HTTP:Authorization},QSA,L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [E=X-HTTP_AUTHORIZATION:%{HTTP:Authorization},QSA,L]
    </IfModule>
    # END WordPress
  6. The agent will ask you to share your Support PIN that you copied earlier. Provide that number to them.
  7. After that, the agent will make the change for you. You can verify it by going to My Products > Web Hosting > Manage > Files & FTP > File Manager.
  8. Double click on the .htaccess file to review the changes.

  9. The file should look like this:
    File_Manager_2018-01-26_12-14-52.png

 

Now what?

Now that you've made these changes, you should be able to follow our WordPress integration instructions for WordPress.org customers to integrate your Wodify WODs to your website.
