Fresh install. I have many many installs in my corporate setting. We are behind a proxy server out to internet.
With previous versions we were never able to use the search for themes or plug-ins. It would time out. No big deal. Open a browser, go to wordpress.org, and save them and upload whenever.
However in 3.7.1 if I click on appearance and then themes... It times out. I get the following error message:
"PHP Warning: 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. (WordPress could not establish a secure connection to WordPress.org. Please contact your server administrator.) in C:\inetpub\wwwroot\ticket\wp-admin\includes\theme.php on line 298"
What is going on? Is there a new need for themes.php to authenticate with wordpress.org? What am I to do?
