    WP HTTP Error: cURL error 6: Couldn't resolve host 'wordpress.org'

    I'm not sure what happened but everything was fine till I posted something new on my webpage. I'm getting this message.

     

    RSS Error: WP HTTP Error: cURL error 6: Couldn't resolve host 'wordpress.org'

    RSS Error: WP HTTP Error: cURL error 6: Couldn't resolve host 'planet.wordpress.org'

     

    I can't update any plugin either. 

     

    I'm also using a plugin called Teambooking

    and I'm getting this message:

    int(6) string(43) "Couldn't resolve host 'accounts.google.com'"

     

    No idea what to do here. I don't have much knowledge on this so I hope is not a big deal.

    Me too, same problem. They're trying to tell me I have to fix WordPress myself, but it's some sort of outbound server error. None of my plugins that call out, like Wordfence, Jetpack, or iThemes will work and I cannot install plugins.

    @julio_o and @kilakiwi It looks like the server doesn't have internet access. You may want to contact support again and tell them to check the server's connection.

     

    Also, can you please download the plugin Query Monitor and upload it to your site through sFTP activate it and post what it shows in the environment section?

     

    Hope it helps!
