API Error

  • About an hour and a half ago, an API error from Rank Math showed up in the debug log of one of my sites. (The other site has no such errors.) I put the details in the sensitive data. I wasn’t doing anything on the site at that time, so I don’t know what caused it.

  • Hello,

    Thanks a lot for your query and we are so sorry about the trouble this must have caused.

    Please confirm which Rank Math version you are using.

    1. Please update to the latest version.
    2. If that doesn’t solve the issue, de-authorize GSC and authorize it again at WordPress Dashboard > Rank Math > General Settings > Search Console.

    Hope that helps and please do not hesitate to let us know if you need our assistance with anything else.

    Okay, I have re-authorized the account. I will let you know if there are any further issues. Thanks!

    The error messages came back later, and also showed up on my other site as well.

    We might need to take a closer look at the settings. Please edit the first post on this ticket and include your WP logins in the designated Sensitive Data section.

    It is completely secure and only our support staff has access to that section. If you want, you can use the below plugin to generate a temporary login URL to your website and share that with us instead:


    You can use the above plugin in conjunction with the WP Security Audit Log to monitor what changes our staff might make on your website (if any):


    We really look forward to helping you.


    I have updated the sensitive data as requested. I haven’t seen the error message again since I re-authorized both sites yesterday, but it’s still good to check it out.

    Thank you.

    Thank you for contacting Rank Math today.

    I have checked the issue for your and the search console appears to be working now. I did notice an error but after clearing your cache the error was not reported again.
    Another issues that I noted was that your WordFence security might have been blocking the request but I have whitelisted this action.

    Let me know if the issue comes up again. Thank you.


    Thanks! So far, so good.
