    I am not able to get any of the RSS feeds on the dashboard. I get an error similar to below for each of the widgets:

    RSS Error: WP HTTP Error: Could not open handle for fopen() to http://wordpress.org/development/feed/

    The server is self-hosted installed on our business network and used for an Intranet Knowledge Base.

    Otherwise, everything else works just fine.

    Can somebody point me to a solution?

    In my case, I needed an additional PHP component added to my Linux server. Once I did this and restarted, everything started to work!!

    PHP-CURL.

    On Ubuntu Server to install:

    sudo apt-get install php5-curl

    Hope this helps someone, because I spent a lot of time looking for this solution.
