Anyone having problems with Akismet on Server 3 ?
Akismet suddently stopped working despite me having a valid key (still valid i confirmed) but somehow my WP installation can not connect with akismet.com
Has there been a configuration change on server 3 ? That prevents from akismet to work ?
Same issue. I have implemented the referrer coding to the function.php and not had any effect on the amount of spam I am getting in the past few days. Any light on this please.
It may have also effected the ability to search for plugins using the dashboard > plugins > add new
Has this also happened on yours?
I have also notice strange mysql error and when i check again it works fine.. I notice this strange performance 5 days now but this past 2 days works fine.
As this in the akismet support page, this can be a bug on the updates at the server.
This seems to be going on still and I my website is unable to get to akismet.com.
Is anyone else still seeing this issue?
I was able to upgrade the plugin it says that all the servers are accessible, when I check akismet.com it says it is available. But the plugin says it is not working, and I am getting slammed with a thousand spam comments a day.
I messaged bondings about it. Should I message someone else?
Well I tried removing and reinstalling Akismet plugin, after I found the plugin folder and it still did not correct the issue.
So I downloaded unzipped the cURL plugin, uploaded the "core-control" folder into my "wp-content\plugins" folder activated it, went to the core control menu .... which was not so simple to find, it is under "Tools" and "Core Control" and enabled the HTTP Access module, tested it, and deactivated it like the instructions said, and the error on the key went away.
So this does fix the problem even though it is an older not updated untested plugin with this version of wordpress (3.6.1).
I guess we are testing it for them eh?
Thanks everyone for the help!
