The support I got at WordPress really impressed me today! Yesterday I had a problem with JP that wouldn’t run on my localhost after I changed the web server from a local server to a public server. Afterwords JP would not connect anymore whatever I tried.
On the support page I found a short post on a related matter from Jeremy and I asked him for help. Today (on a saturday ) I got the answer and now I run JP locally without being connected to WP. That’s just great! If you would like to do this also then just follow the instructions below and: You will be JetPacking in 5!
Before I leave you to go to the instructions I would like to say out loud and make a statement that:
Jeremy@ “WordPress.com | Automattic” rocks and by the power of all geeks in vested in me: I raise Jeremy to Sir Jeremy in the order of Happiness Engineers. Jeremy I salute you my dear Sir!
If you want to run Jetpack on localhost, I would recommend that you install the development version of Jetpack:
We have recently added a “Development mode” to Jetpack: if you add the following constant to your wp-config.php, you will be able to use Jetpack without connecting to WordPress.com:
Please note that only modules that don’t require a WordPress.com connection can be enabled in this mode.
I hope this helps.
