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.
System was reloaded and resolvers weren’t listed in /etc/resolv.conf during initial Apache startup. Resolvers were added shortly thereafter but Apache hadn’t been restarted since. PHP and/or Apache must pull resolvers once at startup; Dashboard and Akismet both working fine now after Apache restart.
