    My Akismet Spam plug-in has stoped working, I have not changed anything on my site it just stopped working. I have tried to find the problem but it has me stumped. Anyone know what I should do or check to get it working again?

    Please help I am getting about 100 spam comments a day.

    You're not one of my hosting clients, are you? (I don't recognize your handle here. if you don't recognize mine, then you;re probably not one of mine.) We're in the process of removing Akismet on all of the servers since it no longer works and replacing it with other options.

    If not, get with your host and see if they've done anything or made any changes recently to their box. Make sure that php can use the fopen command, the box can do outboung html commands, and that the box can see rest.akismet.com

    No I run my own server, i hade made no changes to wordpress or the server configuration. Spent some time poking around yesterday and unknowingly fixed the problem. :)

    Thanks for the help anyway.

    I'm having the very same type of problem; AKISMET just stopped without notice. All server configurations are OK. WHO CAN EXPLAIN THIS?

    Have you asked the creator of Akismet?
