  • same problem =(
    can’t update WP and plugins..

    i’ve found solution!!

    Download and install this plugin manually: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/core-control/ Once you’ve activated it, Load the “Core Control” settings page and activate the “HTTP Module”. Go to the new tab fore the “HTTP Module” and test cURL. You will most likely receive the following error message “An Error has occured: name lookup timed out” Now click the “Disable Transport” link in for cURL. You should now be able install plugins and plugin updates.

    in my case, PHP HTTP Extension got error 200!

    Hi!!! I follow the solution suggested by NetSpider without good results. After disabling the cURL, my dashboard shows this message: WP HTTP Error: Could not open handle for fopen() Before that the message on my dashboard was: WP HTTP Error: connect() timed out!

    Both messages apear on: Plugins, Incoming Links, WordPress development blog and Other wordpress news.

    Also some plugins as

  • wp-weather, flickrRSS, Brian’s Latest Comments
  • and the widget

  • Entries from any RSS or Atom feed
  • does not work.

    All this begins after the update to 2.8.4 to my blogs hosted in bluehost, but a blog hosted in hostgator and also updated are working fine.

    Any suggestions?… PLEASE!!!

What version did you upgrade from? Was it older than 2.8? Try deactivating all plugins and switching your theme to the default theme. If it works with the plugins renamed, then you’ll know that a plugin is causing it. Restore the plugins one by one until you find the culprit(s).
