    Everytime I try to search, or look at 'popular' or 'newest' in the 'add new' section under the Plugins tab, I get the following error message:

    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.

    Try again

    Any suggestions welcome please. I need to install various plugins and can't do it at the moment.

    what do you mean by it's still not working? have you uploaded the plugins using ftp? they are not showing under plugins? do you get an error message? :)

    I've uploaded NextGen Gallery via FTP and it doesn't show under the plugins. I also re-uploaded the admin folder and I'm getting some other errors now. For example, I can't add an image to a page

    these seems like a server issue, make sure you have sufficient space on your domain, you can contact your hosting provider and make sure you don't have issues with your hosting.
    -fist thing check if you have space on your server!

    Check C-Panel and I have loads of space left on the server. This is a new website and I've used less than 30mb of 500mb available

    This really doesn't sound like a php/wordpress issue, can you edit the theme files? go to backend(wp dashboard)->appearance -> editor and check if you can modify any file ... (style.css would do)... if you can, please unde the change - we just want to see if it allows you to make any modifications...

    love wp,
    It is recommended to start you're own issue, this error might be caused by a firewall on the server also, have you tried to upload the theme/plugin using FTP?

    I had this problem, I disabled WP Video Lightbox and all is working again. Maybe it is a plugin issue.

    I had this problem and found that I had copied and pasted a code (Adsense) incorrectly into one of the php files. Hope this helps someone!

    Just so you guys know, I had the same issue and found out that it was my BackUpWordpress plugin using up all of the database memory. So, it could be one of your plugins causing madness.

    Disabling all plugins and then reactivating them again fixed this issue for me...

    One of the issues that people miss is their Outgoing Connections.
    This feature allows you to specify certain IPs or IP ranges to which you will be able to open outgoing connections.

    You have to allow Outgoing Connections from your cpanel.

    Good luck!

    These are English language forums, so please use English. Alternatively, use a WP support forum in your language.

    Basically, she is saying that she had the same issue. The installation did not allow her to install plug-ins, so she did a new installation to the latest version of wordpress and that worked.

    I had a exactly same situation, in my case was my linux server problem.
    if you are running wordpress on your virtual machine, try ping test on your server side.
