    For the past few days, I was busy setting up autoblogs on freehosting sites (as a test b4 I buy hosting service :p). Anyways, this freehosting site doesn't have fantastico type script so I was forced to manually install wordpress. I installed it fine but have trouble with some plugins...

    I can't seem to use the ff plugins:

    Akismet.... There was a problem connecting to the Akismet server. Please check your server configuration.

    Wordpress.com Stats.... Your blog was unable to connect to WordPress.com. Please ask your host for help. (transport error - could not open socket: )

    CC.... Neither fsockopen nor cURL is allowed on this server. Please enable cURL or fopen to continue.

    WP to Twitter.... Warning: fsockopen() has been disabled for security reasons in /www/fh50.com/w/e/i/***site***/htdocs/wp-includes/class-snoopy.php on line 1142

    Warning: fsockopen() has been disabled for security reasons in /www/fh50.com/w/e/i/***site***/htdocs/wp-includes/class-snoopy.php on line 1142

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function curl_init() in /www/fh50.com/w/e/i/***site***/htdocs/wp-content/plugins/wp-to-twitter/wp-to-twitter.php on line 153
    I deactivated the above plugins for the mean time.

    Also, whenever I post content manually... as I can't use CC :(... it always comes up with error: Your attempt to edit this post: "***post***" has failed. Please try again.

    Then it saved it as a draft. So I have to again go to "posts" -> "edit" click the "publish" button to be able to publish the content.

    Really need help here guys. I'm completely nOOb on this so please speak english :D


    This is the freehosting service I used: hxxp://www*fh50*com

    Thanks in advance.

    Hm, sounds like the host sucks.
    You could re-upload files, make sure you dont use ASCII upload. Move to better free servers like 000webhost.com if it becomes too much of trouble

    I'm reuploading 'em all now. Hope this solves the problem. *crosses fingers*

    As for 000webhost.com, I tried signing up a while ago but I don't like that they want me to download a program for "IP verification" which avast! labeled as a threat to my system... I think I'll passed on this site. Thanks anyways.

    These days pretty much anything is labeled as spyware , i wish they make one solid program that would unify all virus databases like virustotal does, thanx for letting me know.
    Check this site free web hosting - search for free website providers i found it good source of free hosts.
