[Plugin: Broken Link Checker] Timeouts on good links?

  • localhost links normally aren’t a problem; I often test the plugin on my own locally hosted blog.

    Perhaps PHP doesn’t play nicely with your current nameserver configuration, or something like that?

    Thanks for your quick reply. PHP has been happy with with my setup for years. I’ll let you know if I find a solution.

    I have a similar problem, any idea what happened?

    No idea what happened. My hosts file looks okay.

    I uploaded the plug-in to the production server and it works perfectly. The production server WP database is essentially a dump from the development setup.

    My question about “fully-formed” URLs was because I don’t specify domain in my internal links, so they look like href=”\index.php\webpage\”.

    Relative URLs should be fine. The plugin automatically converts them to the fully qualified form before trying to load them.

    Alas, I don’t have any other ideas either.

    I noticed that between my local Windows-based installation and my host a difference is that cURL isn’t installed locally.

    After about 5 hours of trying to get it installed following irrelevant and obsolete instructions on the net, I (ahem, properly) uninstalled PHP and replaced it with http://windows.php.net/downloads/releases/php-5.2.14-Win32-VC6-x86.msi, selecting the cURL extension.

    It’s working well. Thanks for your help, and for the plug-in!
