In the past two days, I've noticed that the incoming links and news updates have stopped appearing in my dashboard. And with Akismet, I've been getting the following error messages when I go into my configuration:
"The key you entered could not be verified because a connection to akismet.com could not be established. Please check your server configuration."
"The key below was previously validated but a connection to akismet.com can not be established at this time. Please check your server configuration."
I am with Bluehost, running ver. 2.3.3 and I haven't changed any configurations with my server, so I'm really just wondering if any ideas as to what could be causing this. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.
