dl'd and installed latest version. it is installed on the root of the webserver site and currently working fine. except for this stats plugin.. i copied and pasted my api key exactly into the config file at the top where it says it can be hard coded. the error i get is:
Error from last API Key attempt:
Your blog was unable to connect to WordPress.com. Please ask your host for help. (transport error - could not open socket: 110 Connection timed out)
The WordPress.com Stats Plugin is not working because it needs to be linked to a WordPress.com account.
An API Key is present in the source code but it did not work.
