    Hey there ASMC Member,

    hope everything’s going well for you! :slight_smile:

    This is a known issue with some members. Our devs have informed us that this should be resolved after restarting the server (that is when curl is enabled and fsock is open).

    Also, some hosts cache a DNS lookup fail for a very long time, so this error message can be cached and keep displaying. Clearing the server DNS cache should resolve this.

    If you don’t know how to proceed with these steps, please contact your hosting provider about and they should be able to restart the server and clear server DNS cache pretty easily.

    These steps have importance as long as there isn’t anything else blocking the communication to our API end ( so you may also have to double check that with your hosting provider.

    Hope that was some help, please keep us posted here with your results!

    Warm regards,


    PS. I can see that you’ve opened another thread for the same actually issue, even though it’s coming from another plugin of ours.

    I’m going to respond and close this other thread so we can keep up in this one.

Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.

Gift a custom amount of points.
