myRepono API – DO NOT DELETE

Do not delete this page or changes its URL slug, it is required for myRepono backupto work.

This is a placeholder page that is used to load the myRepono API file. This is required because direct access to the myRepono API file (/wp-content/plugins/myrepono-wordpress-backup-plugin/api/myrepono.php) is disabled and always returns a 403. I was unable to find the cause of the 403 and a way to turn it off, even after allowing the URL path in GoDaddy’s firewall setting and also disabling WordPress’ .htaccess file. I’m guessing it comes from GoDaddy and it’s security setting or firewall.

Solutions tried that didn’t work:

  • Allowing the myRepono URL path in GoDaddy’s firewall setting.
  • Disabling WordPress’ .htaccess file.
  • Pass-through redirect using Redirection plugin.

The following work around is being used to allow backups to work:

  1. This page was created with the /myrepono-api/ slug.
  2. A custom page template based on the slug was created.
    • /wp-content/themes/wildtones/page-myrepono-api.php
  3. The custom page template loads the myRepono API file and then exits.
  4. myRepono configuration was updated to use this page, instead of accessing it’s API file directly.

Sandhill Crane

Sandhill Cranes are very tall birds that are gray overall with a beautiful red crown. They form large flocks in the winter and forage for grains along the grasslands and wetlands of the southwest. Congregations of over 500,000 cranes occur along the Platte River in Nebraska in February and March. They also spend much of January in the southwest from Texas to California. Their common name comes from the Sandhills of Nebraska, which is considered to be their most important stopover point during migration. Their distinctive bugling call can be heard up to two miles away!

Osprey
$0.99
Buy on Amazon
Ospreys are found on all continents except Antarctica and are always found near bodies of water. They migrate from their breeding grounds to warmer climates where their main food, fish, is plentiful. These large predators hover over the water and then plunge in to get the fish which they hold in their talons as they fly back to their nests. Ever see a bird shaking in the air like a dog? This would be an Osprey! These very large birds are very happy to nest on platforms built for them, and raise their chicks, and these platforms have been very helpful in reestablishing birds after years of loss of eggs from DDT.
