[Resolved] WP Installed in local host cannot access WP Server

  • You are going to have to provide a better description of the problem than that.

    I get the following error messages, viz.
    If I try to access eg Themes then=.

    An unexpected error occurred. Something may be wrong with WordPress.org or this server’s configuration. If you continue to have problems, please try the support forums.

    Try again
    or
    RSS Error: WP HTTP Error: Could not open handle for fopen() to http://blogsearch.google.com/blogsearch_feeds?scoring=d&ie=utf-8&num=10&output=rss&partner=wordpress&q=link:http://localhost/Wordpress_1/wordpress/

    And access to widgets etc gives error messages

    I would check with your host to see if fopen() is enabled on the server. It is a PHP function but is sometimes disabled by server admins.

    Thankyou for your reply
    My host is LocalHost, so how do I check?

    url-fopen-open in Php.ini

    repeat.
    the instruction in php.ini
    url-fopen-open was “open”

    Status still the same

    It didn’t occur to me until you said it was localhost but one problem you are going to have is that localhost means ‘this computer’ You are passing http://blogsearch.google.com a GET value that means “look at yourself to find jucebone’s WordPress installation” That isn’t going to work. You are telling blogsearch to look on http://blogsearch.google.com to find your WordPress. Just ignore it. You can’t fix it.

    gee thanks fro staying with me.
    Ok
    So how do I progress the growth of a Localhost WP website, when I can’t access WP.org from localhost?

    What do you mean by “the growth”? What growth? If you are running on ‘localhost’ nobody can get to the site who isn’t sitting at that machine. If you expect this to be publicly accessible you need to put it on a publicly accessible server.

    Hi,
    let’s replace the word “growth” with “develop”

    IE,
    How do I develop the site in Localhost with the aim of eventually uplifting it to a WebHost?

    You really shouldn’t have much trouble. I do it all the time. Its my job.

    The particular error you posted isn’t a problem. Just ignore it. If that fopen() shows up elsewhere then something about your server/PHP installation is broken.

    It occurs to me that ‘open’ isn’t a proper value, and “url-fopen-open” isn’t a proper key, for allow_url_fopen. Please compare your php.ini settings to this page– http://php.net/manual/en/filesystem.configuration.php

    What is your OS?

    OS = XP Prof X3
    PHP = 5.3.13

    PHP settings = Greek to me

    Sometimes using IP 127.0.0.1 works instead of localhost (in wp-config.php). If WordPress is running fine otherwise ignore these 2 problems if you can not handle them. Rather download the plugins, themes manually using web browser and install them through upload function on your localhost WordPress admin panel or unzip them in plugins or themes folder and activate from WordPress admin panel.

    By the way, there is a free Software named AMPPS, it gives a cPanel or Plesk like backend. That might make you a bit easy to handle the emulated server side.

    Thank you,
    I am currently running WAMP,(with Joomla! working fine)-
    Wouldn’t they conflict?
    Does this mean I must uninstall WAMP and reinstall with AMPPS?
