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

  • 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 (127.0.0.1) 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 127.0.0.1 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 127.0.0.1. On the server itself, I can browse to and ping any of localhost, 127.0.0.1 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.
