Getting JetPack working

I had two issues with JetPack – but I finally got it working.

Issue one –

 Jetpack could not contact WordPress.com: register_http_request_failed.
This usually means something is incorrectly configured on your web host.
Operation timed out after 15000 milliseconds with 0 bytes received

This was resolved by setting the max_execution_time to 300 in my php.ini file – make sure you restart your webserver / fast cgi daemon.

Issue two –

Your website needs to be publicly accessible to use Jetpack: site_inaccessible
Error Details: The Jetpack server was unable to communicate with your site [IXR -32300: transport error: http_request_failed Operation timed out after 15000 milliseconds with 0 bytes received]

This was easily solved by changing the following value from 1 to 2 in my /etc/init.d/php-cgi script

PHP_FCGI_CHILDREN
