Very strange, while installing new plugins I saw following error in the Plugin page in the WordPress Admin on following page
An Unexpected HTTP Error occurred during the API request.
I’ve to dog down further to find out what could be the problem. From the error it is obvious that it is a timeout issues. The website and internet connection seems to be slow today (Sunday).
BT broadband sucks during the weekends, they come to dead slow quite often.
In the earlier versions before 3.0 the solution was to increase the timeout value in http.php file. However I can’t find this piece of code in wordpress 3.0.1.
Solution yet to be found…
Just to update those who have tuned to this post…
This was a timeout issues as it is clear from the error. May be server was hibernating or Internet connection was slow.
This error doesn’t appear anymore.
So guys I’m not going to investigate into it anymore.
If you still can’t find a solution then try to change the timeout value as explained elsewhere and see if it solves.
If not then switch to a dedicated server, shared hosting always sucks….
Unfortunately I host my own blog on such a sucker host ;) may be sometimes later I’ll swith host.
