previously validated but a connection to akismet.com can not be established (1 post)

    Ok, for a couple of months now Askimet has not been functioning correctly. So recently I began to pay for it as me and a bunch of my clients have been getting alot of comment spam. However still I get this error when I attempt to save.

    The key you entered could not be verified because a connection to akismet.com could not be established. Please check your server configuration.

    I run my own cPanel webserver so I just updated it to the latest php 5.4.26, I updated cPanel/WHM to WHM 11.40.1 (build 11) and still I have this issue.

    Is there something else I need to do, I am open to any suggestions and am happy to update and check my webserver for any settings.

    Thanks for your help.
