As far as I know nothing chnaged in the server configuration, but I get this error:
The key below was previously validated but a connection to akismet.com can not be established at this time. Please check your server configuration.
I have Akismet on a few other blogs and those are working, any idea what "server configuration" I need to check?
I found something about fopen and I asked my host, this was their response:
can see that "fopen" is enabled in the server. Please see the snippet below.
[root@www01 ~]# php -i | grep "fopen"
allow_url_fopen => On => On
Also I can see that port 80 is open in the server.
