    I’m drowning in a sea of spam this morning across all of our sites. Akismet has suddenly stopped working and I can’t work out why, but I’ve received over 150 emails in the past hour. Whilst this makes me more aware of how much it saves me the rest of the time, it’s not an ideal solution. Anyone have any idea what I can do to make it start working again? Nothing’s changed!

  • Hello,
    I have exactly the same problem (fortunately with less spam).
    My wesite is hosted by shared hosting.
    Akismet servers are running perfectly, my configuration is correct, it actually stops some spam comments, but not others. Till last week it never missed one single spam comment and I had no error.

    it seems I solved my problem.
    I contacted my hosting (eleven2) and asked them to enable “allow_url_fopen ” on the php.ini.
    After they did it Akismet started working perfectly again, no error massages and no spam. The website is also much faster.
