Windows Live Writer 2011 with WordPress on DreamHost

You may get some problems when trying to use Windows Live Writer 2011 with a WordPress 3.1 installation on DreamHost. I was getting an error stating that it got an incorrect response from blogger.getUsersBlogs.

If you go into the DreamHost control panel to manage domains, there is the option for “Extra Web Security?” By default, this is selected. Just uncheck this box and select save and WLW should work fine when you go to add the blog.
