Update Failed: Download failed. cURL error 6: name lookup timed out

#1
Hi guys,

Looking for some advice here. On one of my sites hosted elsewhere I have been getting this error response:-
Quote:Update Failed: Download failed. cURL error 6: name lookup timed out

This arrears when I try to install or update Wordpress plugins. I'm starting to think that the hosting provider has restrictions around using cURL.

Any suggestions?

Yes, I have just Googled that error and it might be the provider blocking cURL and connections to external servers (plugin authors). You would have to contact your provider and ask about the error, they should help you as that the server side problem apparently.
