I have had trouble installing Plugins since I upgraded to WP 2.6. I get this error during FTP.
Download failed.: name lookup timed out
I have three main blogs. One is on a Windows server. Everything works fine there, but the two Linux accounts are giving me this same error. I deleted one and installed WP 2.7 from scratch and I still cannot use the auto install to add Plugins by FTP. I can do it manually.
Apparently, the windows system doesn't use FTP to do the install or at least I am not asked for FTP credentials each time something is updated on that blog. (There's an annoying feature which needs to leave, but that is for another post.)
The Linux servers stats are:
Apache version 2.2.6 (Unix)
PHP version 5.2.5
MySQL version 4.1.22-standard
Operating system Linux
Kernel version 188.8.131.52
I have had this trouble since the 2.6 upgrade. My host has not reported any change on their end which might have occurred while I was upgrading. I doubt it is a hosting problem. On the other Linux blog, I cannot update old Plugins.
Has anyone else run into this error?
