Friday, May 23, 2003 RPC error fix

You may have seen this error crop up in your movabletype blog:

Ping '' failed: HTTP error: 500 read timeout

I found plenty of sites through google where people were asking about this but nobody offered a solution that I saw. Well, I found a solution that was posted on the MT support forum just an hour or so ago: : Support Forum

below is a unified diff so that you can patch your site. The patch seems to work most of the time, although I have had at least one of the same errors crop up. That could have been due to something else though.
