[resolved] register_http_request_failed (4 posts)

    My site is at http://www.prairierosecoffeeandtea.ca/

    The site was recently migrated, and I noticed that Jetpack Publicize was not working today. I deactivated the plug-in, and reactivated, and now I get an "Jetpack could not contact WordPress.com: register_http_request_failed. This usually means something is incorrectly configured on your web host. Couldn't resolve host 'jetpack.wordpress.com'" error.

    I have seen this error mentioned, but it always says to start a new thread with your specific error in those posts. So that is what I am doing.

    Any idea on how I can fix this? Thanks.

    p.s. I should mentioned everything was working fine before the migration. No plug-ins were conflicting, and Publicize was working fine.

    Can you please try installing the Jetpack Compatibility Plugin so we can see some additional information from your site?

    1) Download the plugin from http://plugins.svn.wordpress.org/jetpack/branches/jetpack-compatibility-test.zip
    2) Upload the plugin to your site via Dashboard -> Plugins -> Add New.
    3) Activate the plugin and go to Plugins -> Jetpack Compatibility Test.
    4) Click the "Select All" button.
    5) Send us the test results via this contact form:

    Jeremy, I seem to have got things working. I erases the plug-in, and reinstalled, which still didn't work. I erased it again, then uploaded through FTP instead of the WordPress uploader. At that point I stopped getting those errors.
