Can't connect WordPress - Invalid Credentials or Base URL

I'm trying to connect one of my WordPress sites to Pabbly Connect. However, no matter what JSON/API Auth plugin I use, I always get the same Warning when I try to connect:

Invalid Credentials or Base URL

I've tried using these plugins, with no success:
WordPress REST API Authentication
WP Basic Authentication

I've even disabled my caching and security plugins to see if that was blocking it, but it still doesn't work.

Hey @Quiet City Design

If you are trying to connect with a different website then perhaps some of your plugins might be interfering with your automation.

Kindly cross-check the correct plugin whcih you are using.



I have the same issue.
I installed the plugin WordPress REST API Authentication and configured it but I cannot still create a connection with my Wordpress.

Thanks for your help.

Hey @Houefa

We looked into your workflow and it seems like you didn't connect your WordPress account yet.

Kindly connect it once and then try again. You can also refer to the following video tutorial for the same.
