    I am getting a bunch of errors on server requests in the dashboard as well as the plugin page.

    Time out errors, empty requests

    I haven’t added anything recently that would have changed settings.

    Can you post some examples of these errors?

    This is on the Plugin “add new” page

    An unexpected error occurred. Something may be wrong with WordPress.org or this server’s configuration.

    On the Dashboard:

    WordPress Blog:
    RSS Error: WP HTTP Error: connect() timed out!

    Incoming Links:
    RSS Error: WP HTTP Error: Empty reply from server

    I think you need to contact your hosts about these. The RSS errors aren’t too serious but the plugin page error suggests that your site cannot contact WP – which, in turn, implies a server configuration problem.

    I just got off the phone with the hosting company. They said it is a WordPress issue.

    Have you tried:

    – deactivating all plugins to see if this resolves the problem. If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

    – switching to the Twenty Eleven theme to rule out any theme-specific problems.

    resetting the plugins folder by FTP or PhpMyAdmin. Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems.

    – re-uploading all files & folders – except the wp-content folder – from a fresh download of WordPress.

    If you try all of that and you still have the problem, then you’ve proven that it’s definitely not a WordPress issue.

    I haven’t done any of that because there were no issues with the site. It wasn’t until I tried searching for a new plugin that the errors started occurring.

    I suggest you try these steps.

    Logged in this morning and it is back to normal without having done anything. Very strange.
