    Not sure if I did something wrong, but in the last 12 hours we've been seeing the error below repeatedly and getting more spam registrations.

    An error has been detected
    Error: http_request_failed - Operation timed out after 5 seconds with 0 bytes received

    IP: 24.121.181.7
    Accessing: /wp-login.php?action=register

    Can anyone help?

    Thanks,

    It seems you have a problem connecting to Stop Forum Spam from your server.

    Thanks for the reply, Peter. That's what I suspected.

    Is this normal? I have a dedicated Rackspace server that I constantly monitor, so I know communications should be OK.

    Is it possible the Stop Forum Spam servers are blocking me or they have some other issue on their side? This error happens several times a day for us.

    Thanks,
    Sam
