    Your site URL?

    I have the same problem occurring on a new (created 2 days ago) small multi-site:
    It happens when I attempt to search to install new plugins from the network dashboard as super-admin.

    Everything is new: 3.4.2, only Akismet and WordPress Importer as existing plugins.

    any idea?

    I also get the same error when searching for new themes.

    If the problem is happening when you search plugins or themes its probably because your connected to a proxy and you need to configure it on your wp-config.php

    /** EXAMPLE – proxy settings */
    define(‘WP_PROXY_HOST’, ‘’);
    define(‘WP_PROXY_PORT’, ‘1234’);
    define(‘WP_PROXY_USERNAME’, ”);
    define(‘WP_PROXY_PASSWORD’, ”);
    define(‘WP_PROXY_BYPASS_HOSTS’, ‘localhost’);

    I’m having that exact same problem, and added that code into the wp-config.php file and still nothing!

    – I reinstalled wordpress and MU version of the site as well
    – my server is behind a load balancer and firewall (school server)

    This is the first time wordpress and a server has ever gave me problem

    Any ideas?


    in my case, it was simply the SITE URL left blank in Settings -> General
    Filled with mu site URL, everything started working again.

    i found out enabling WP_DEBUG in wp-config.php, and i got this error:
    “Notice: Undefined index: host”

    Thank You so much mario.andrade
    It was a proxy problem and solved now 🙂

    mario.andrade could you please elaborate
