    I am having an issue updating and searching for plug-ins.

    When I try to update a plugin, it hangs on searching for the plug-in and then displays this message :

    "Download failed. Could not open handle for fopen()"

    And when I add a new plug-in, the following message is displayed:

    "An unexpected error occurred. Something may be wrong with WordPress.org or this server’s configuration."

    The server is running:
    Apache/2.2.22 (Unix)
    PHP 5.4.6--pl2-gentoo (cli)
    gentoo 2.6.36-gentoo-r5

    The current installed plugins are:
    Add Meta Tags Version 2.0.3 (active)
    Akismet Version 2.5.6 (active)
    Breadcrumb Navigation XT Version 1.7 (inactive)
    Category Clouds Widget Version 2.0 (active)
    Events Version 2.2.4.1 (active)
    Google XML Sitemaps Version 3.2.8 (inactive)
    Gravity Forms Version 1.4.5 (active)
    Gravity Forms Requirements Check Version 0.6 (inactive)
    Hello Dolly Version 1.6 (inactive)
    Job Manager Version 0.7.20 (active)
    Latest From Each Category Version 1.9 (active)
    Role Manager Version 2.2.3 (active)
    SharedVue Syndication Version 1.3.0 (active)
    Subscribe To Comments Version 2.1.2 (active)
    WP-Testimonials Version 3.4.1 (active)

    The website is: http://www.g3it.com/

    This sounds like a server issue. Have you checked your site's error logs?

    All error logs are clear, No error is being given.

    Have you tried:

    - deactivating all plugins to see if this resolves the problem. If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

    - switching to the Twenty Eleven theme to rule out any theme-specific problems.

    - resetting the plugins folder by FTP or PhpMyAdmin. Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems.

    I have tried all of the above methods, and the errors have not been resolved.

    However, there is a new error in the log:
    [Thu Sep 13 13:44:17 2012] [error] [client 10.20.40.51] PHP Warning: mysql_field_name() expects parameter 1 to be resource, array given in /var/www/localhost/htdocs/samwebsiterestore/wp-content/plugins/wp-events/wp-events-setup.php on line 64, referer: http://(Mylinuxserver)

    That's just a warning and won't affect anything. Have you spoken to your hosts about this? They may be blocking wordpress.org.

    It is hosted on our server, it is not blocked.

    In that case, check your server's configuration. It seem to be unable to contact wordpress.org.

    Can you give a bit more detail regarding the configuration?

    Sorry - general server configuration issues are beyond the scope of these forums. I can only suggest that you try posting in a forum dedicated to your server software.

    We fixed the issue.

    We recompiled PHP with cURL support and it fixed the issue.
