    Hi everyone,

    i am trying to look for plugins but when i click the keyword and i hit the search button, this is what i get:

    An unexpected error occurred. Something may be wrong with WordPress.org or this server’s configuration. If you continue to have problems, please try the support forums.

    I saw it happened to other people but i didn't understand how to fix it.

    Is there anyone who would help me?

    Thanks!

    Fab

    This is almost certainly a server configuration issue. The most common cause is a failure to implement cUrl in PHP. Contact your hosts about it.

    So finally sorted this issue. This is what i have been told by my hosting provider and everything is working now!

    "The installation in question was hitting one of the rlimits we have in place during the search. I have raised the limit and was then able to search for plugins without issue."

    No idea what an "rlimit" is but then if you have such a problem get in touch with your hosting and they should fix this for you.

    Hope this helps anyone with my same problem.
