My Autoblog stopped working, getting some error.

Autoblog dashboard shows errors, It hasn't updated in 2 days on my main page. Here are the error details "WP HTTP Error: cURL error 28: Operation timed out after 10001 milliseconds with 0 bytes received."

    Hello Jonathan,

    I hope you are well today. I'll be following up with you regarding your chat.

    I've logged into your site and server and made some changes to your configuration to try to resolve this issue.

    First, I bumped up you PHP resources:

    max_execution_time = 300
    memory_limit = 1024M
    post_max_size = 128M
    upload_max_filesize = 128M

    I updated your wp-config.php to allow WordPress to use the max allowed memory.

    // Increase WP Memory Limit
    define('WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '1024M');

    Next, I added a mu-plugin to increase WordPress' native timeout:

    function refactored_extend_http_request_timeout( $timeout ) {
    	return 300;
    add_filter( 'http_request_timeout', 'refactored_extend_http_request_timeout' );

    None of these tweaks resolved the issue. I then checked the source feed on a known good site where Autoblog is working fine. The source feed you have defined won't work on the known good site. I then took a known good RSS feed and tested it on your site, it worked.

    See screenshots:

    I've removed the drafts and sample feed.

    So, it seems there is something on the source feed end that is blocking connection. I've checked the feed validation and that is good. This may be a temporary issue on the source feed's end. I've enabled force feed. Please give it 24hrs to run through a few times. If the problem does not clear up, please reply back here and we'll dig into this issue further.

    Best regards,

    James Morris
