    RSS Error: WP HTTP Error: cURL error 7: Failed to connect to wordpress.org port, by perplexed99

    I can’t download new plugins as I get the following message: “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.”

    Also, on the dashboard under “WordPress Events and News” I get the following error messages:

    RSS Error: WP HTTP Error: cURL error 7: Failed to connect to wordpress.org port 80: Connection timed out

    RSS Error: WP HTTP Error: cURL error 7: Failed to connect to planet.wordpress.org port 443: Connection timed out

    I have contacted my dedicated server support and this is their response:

    “I have been looking into this, and it does look like that is the issue, your server just cannot connect to wordpress.org:
    ———-begin support response————
    — wordpress.org ping statistics —
    11 packets transmitted, 0 received, +11 errors, 100% packet loss, time 9999ms

    You do have network connectivity though:

    — google.com ping statistics —
    2 packets transmitted, 2 received, 0% packet loss, time 1001ms

    And when trying to connect to wordpress.org the packets do leave your server:

    [[email protected] ~]# traceroute wordpress.org
    traceroute to wordpress.org (66.155.40.249), 30 hops max, 60 byte packets

    15 * * *
    16 * * *
    17 * * *

    Just they never make it there. As the packets are getting out of our network though, we really don’t control that. I would definitely try and check if wordpress.org has your IP blocked by chance, for whatever reason: 209.182.213.19

    ———-end support response————

    Any help in resolving this issue will be greatly appreciated.

    Can someone check and see if my ip has been blocked? This is a new ip for my site as I have just moved to a new server.

    Thank you
