plugin-install.php returns "unknown error"

Description

When going to add another plugin, I clicked on Plugin-->Add New. I searched for RSS and received the "unknown error" I hit back, and tried clicking on a popular tag same error.

At the frontpage (http://www.jcoreydavis.com/wp-admin/) with the various plugin suggestions in the bottom left, when clicking on the install button only, same error.

I tried posting at the forums, google search, and searching through the various bugs prior to submitting a ticket.

  • Keywords reporter-feedback added
  • Milestone set to 2.9

Sounds like a HTTP Transport issue.

Chances are, Which ever is currently the default may have an issue on your setup, Click Test on the transports marked as default and see if that gives an error message. You can also try Disabling the primary transports and then trying the plugins page again, It'll tell us if its the problem with the HTTP api or something else.

These are the things I got from running that plugin.

Hm.. I need to add in POST testing too..

Try disabling the Curl module.. Given that Fsockopen and Streams are not available, That generally tends to point towards PHP having very little functionality available, Curl seems to have problems on -some- hosts like that

It is working again now. Thank you for your help. Any idea why it worked before, then stopped working?

  • Component changed from Plugins to HTTP

possibly network timeouts or the likes. close as worksforme?

  • Milestone 2.9 deleted
  • Resolution set to worksforme
  • Status changed from new to closed

Yep. sounds like a network routing or server glitch.
