Having what seems to be a common issue presently. Attempted to join a discussion, but advised to start my own thread.
I am getting the following error message when attempting to connect JetPack to WordPress.com:
Jetpack could not contact WordPress.com: register_http_request_failed. This usually means something is incorrectly configured on your web host. Operation timed out after 15000 milliseconds with 0 bytes received
I have the following setup:
- Linux server with GoDaddy, with PHP ver 5.3
- Latest WordPress ver. 3.7.1 and Jetpack ver 2.5
I've reviewed the Jetpack's debugging suggestions (i.e. disabling other plugins, known issues, XMLRPC file), but none apply. I even deleted Jetpack and reinstalled to no avail. Call to GoDaddy revealed no server-side issues.
Is the problem somewhere in the coding GoDaddy uses to install WordPress and Jetpack? It is a GoDaddy-customized version of WordPress afterall. I should also note that on previous installs of Jetpack that pre-dated this new GoDaddy version of WP, I had no problems.
Please engineer my happiness...I'd like to take off!;)
