xmlrpc.php 500 internal server error

    Question

  • I have been using Windows Live Writer to update my Wordpress site for many years.

    Recently, I started to get xmlrpc.php 500 internal server errors when uploading pictures with Live Writer.

    I am also unable to retrieve recent posts for the site.

    I tried using Microsoft Word 2007 and it posted a picture post without errors.

    Windows Live Writer version: 2011 (Build 15.4.3508.1109)

    Wordpress version: 3.1.3 (did not work with 3.1.2 either)

    Here's excerpt from the Live Writer log with xxxx censored information:
