RAMP v1.5.3

We’ve released a new version of RAMP to address issues regarding SSL communication between staging and production environments.

  • (change) Use WP_HTTP_IXR_Client to ensure XMLRPC calls to SSL servers remain SSL (
  • (change) Add RAMP_DISABLE_SSL_VERIFY to allow (UNSAFE) turning off SSL certificate validation, for testing or self-signed certificate environments
  • (fix) Address various PHP warnings

This is a recommended upgrade for all customers, especially those accessing their WordPress admin over SSL.

RAMP is a WordPress plugin that makes it easy to move WordPress content from staging to production. Learn more on the product page, read the FAQs and try it out for yourself.
