RSS Stopped working. HELP!!
« on: September 30, 2018, 11:40:23 pm »
Hello everyone!

I'm in deep water and can't figure out how to get my RSS feed back up and running. I'm getting this error message in iTunes Connect: Error parsing feed: Invalid XML: Error on line -1: Premature end of file.

Has this happened to anyone else before and how do I fix it? Thank you so much!

My RSS Feed is: http://bangarangradio.com/feed/

When I try to load your podcast feed URL, it comes up as a blank page. There may be a conflict with either your WordPress theme or a plugin outside of PowerPress. This page has suggestions on how to diagnose the issue:

Hi Shawn,

Thank you for replying! I deactivated all the plugins, that didn't do anything. I changed the theme to one of the recommended themes and it's still not working.

When, I go to feedvalidator.org, it tells me this: Server returned [Errno 111] Connection refused

Does that narrow it down for you at all? Thank you again for all your help!

There may be a security service or firewall running on your server deeper than the WordPress installation and that may be blocking certain requests to your site. Check with support for the company hosting your website and see if they have any suggestions.
