    I just installed it on a free web hosting service. Everything seems to work except the RSS feeds and communication with the server. After adding the Akismet I can't provide the API because it is unable to get to the server.

    Here are the errors I'm getting

    RSS Error: A feed could not be found at http://wordpress.org/development/feed/

    I have the same problem with http://apcmag.com/rss.aspx and this feed seems to work fine in other RSS readers, so I'm not sure what the problem is. It has a few validation issues in the W3C RSS feed validator, but nothing that should cause the WordPress RSS widget not to find it at all...

    I have the same problem now. I can put the feed in my wordpress.com blog without any problems, but i get this error when trying in my own server installation. The people from the newspaper I'm getting the feed from says is not their problem, and actually it works, so I guess it's something failing in WP-2.8

    1. If it works on wordpress.com but not on your own server, then there's probably a problem with your server - no WordPress.

    2. If you want things to work properly, don't use free hosting and chose a decent hosting provider. At the end of the day, you get what you pay for.

    3. If you think you're being blocked, contact your hosting provider.

    I have the same problem in my blog http://ajax-tutorial.net but after i see my php.ini i found the problem :

    How To Fix This Problem
    1. go to php.ini (ask your hosting administrator to setting your php.ini)
    2. search for "shell_exec"
    3. enable this function "shell_exec" ( in my php ini look this "disable_functions=shell_exec,exec,passthru,system,proc_open,popen,parse_ini_file,show_source)" )or delete text "shell_exec"

    I had a similar problem. I tried installing a different RSS Feed widget -- that is, not the WordPress default. This worked. For what it's worth, I used KB Advanced RSS -- based on mostly the star ratings.

    I have just set up a self hosted blog for development and the dashboard feeds (etc) all failed to work.
    RSS Error: A feed could not be found at http://wordpress.org/.....

    It was due to PHP being compiled without the curl option, so this could also be a probable cause for some.

    Use <?php phpinfo(); ?> to see if curl is compiled and enabled.

    The problem solved by using php.ini. Just make a file in your sites/your-domain/etc inside your WP machine. I think it's the easiest way.

    The "apt-get install php5-curl" and enabling extension in php.ini solved the problem for me as well.
