Error: cURL error 6: Could not resolve host: (http_request_failed)


I am getting the following error from WordPress; “Error: cURL error 6: Could not resolve host: (http_request_failed)” Actual website name has been replaced with Researching this error it mentions that there could be a DNS problem. The DNS has not been modified and the issue started appearing in the last 2 days. Prior to that all was good. Any clues will be appreciated.


This almost always turns out to be a hosting DNS problem. I had a night where I was having all kinds of problems because of DNS. It worked the next day, but after that, I switched to external DNS ( rather than my hosting.

Thank you, did as mentioned and the error has gone away! :smiley:
