fopen wp-cron.php?check=md5# failed HTTP request (How to debug further?) (6 posts)

    I am on ubuntu 7.10 using wordpress 2.7. I have installed PHP_Debug(wp pear debug) and WP-Control. I have a problem which Debug seems to tell me boils down to this:

    /!\ PHP WARNING : fopen(http://www.mysite.com/wp-cron.php?check=alongmd5number) [function.fopen]: failed to open stream: HTTP request failed! /!\

    Does anyone have any ideas how to debug this further?

    I have the same warning with Ubuntu 8.10 and WordPress 2.7.
    My scheduled action is not executed because of this...

    need help.

    Are you sure your hostname resolves to localhost ( or an ip belonging to the server and not a router the server is placed behind? If you're behind some kind of NAT that is probably the case.

    (Quick and dirty fix is to point mysite.com and http://www.mysite.com to in your servers hosts-file).

    I'm experiencing exactly the same thing on Kubuntu 8.04.1, WP 2.7. I have verified that my server's name resolves to localhost and On the server itself, I can browse to and ping any of localhost, or the server name with no problem.

    Problem continues in WP 2.7.1.

    Note: This occurs with WP_DEBUG set to true (if false, the warning is suppressed).

    I'm seeing this on Vista with XAMMPLite 1.6.8.
