Support » Fixing WordPress » SSL Enabled on Admin pages. Now getting RSS errors in Dashboard

    Hello all,

    I’ve enabled SSL on my WordPress admin pages using define('FORCE_SSL_ADMIN', true); in wp-config.php. SSL is working now.
    However, the “Incoming Links”, “WordPress Blog”, and “Other WordPress news” sections on the dashboard do not load.

    Below is an example of an error I get in the above mentioned sections:

    RSS Error: WP HTTP Error: Could not open handle for fopen() to http://wordpress.org/news/feed/

    Any ideas what could be wrong?
    Thanks!

  • I’ve resolved the issue.
    The problem was that my iptables firewall on my server was preventing outbound connections and DNS lookups. Therefore, WordPress timed out when trying to access external URLs.

    Thanks
