WordPress could not establish a secure connection to WordPress.org. Please contact your server admin

Hi all,

 

starting from the last weekend, I get these messages in my WordPress dashboard (the website is http://blog.tagliaerbe.com) :

 

"WordPress could not establish a secure connection to WordPress.org. Please contact your server administrator." The error seems to be in wp-includes/update.php on line 123

 

And:

 

"RSS Error: WP HTTP Error: Failed to connect to it.wordpress.org port 443: Connection timed out".

 

Because these issues, I can't update WordPress (I use the last version, 4.5.3) and/or the plugins.

 

Please help me. 🙂

 

Cheers,

 

Davide "Tagliaerbe" Pozzi

can you try changing your file permissions via ftp.

Hi @nohappy,

 

all the files in the same directory have 644 permissions.

 

In some support forums (like https://wordpress.org/support/topic/problems-in-442-updatephp-on-line-123-303-and-467-as-well-as-plu... ) I find this kind of problem:

 

"make sure you have added curl as an extension in your Apache configuration".

 

So, it seems to be a problem related to the server...

 

@nohappy, I have the same issue and its a known problem with CURL. I suggest you call them to add your site to the list of those affected.
