I keep getting this kind of error in my WP dashboard:
WP HTTP Error: Couldn't resolve host
I tend to believe it's a DNS issue although all was working OK before. What I have done is altering the /etc/hosts file and adding stuff like:
127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost 126.96.36.199 zako.vladoiu.net zako 188.8.131.52 api.wordpress.org 184.108.40.206 jetpack.wordpress.com 220.127.116.11 downloads.wordpress.org 18.104.22.168 jetpack.wordpress.org 22.214.171.124 rest.akismet.com 126.96.36.199 rest.akismet.com 188.8.131.52 rest.akismet.com 184.108.40.206 rest.akismet.com 220.127.116.11 smtp.gmail.com 18.104.22.168 dashboard.wordpress.com 22.214.171.124 blogsearch.google.com 173.194.*.* google.com
While this fixes the error say :
WP HTTP Error: Couldn't resolve host 'rest.akismet.com'
