Smartcrawl – timing out in The Hub

It seems that Smartcrawl is continuously timed out in The Hub. I have checked on site and it appears to be running fine there.

This does appear to be happening to all my sites on The Hub.

    Hi Rich,

    It looks like some of the data is getting fetched but it does show the error when it ends loading.

    Do you have any kind of firewall or server-side protection that could be affecting SmartCrawl from getting the data?

    Can you check this with your hosting provider and if there’s anything like that can they whitelist these two IPs that SmartCrawl uses and see if the timeout is gone after that?

    Best regards,

    Hi Predrag,

    I don’t believe there is a firewall or anything blocking WPMU, but I have raised the question with our host. What is strange is it was working perfectly before, and as far as I know nothing has changed our side.

    Is there anything else that could be causing this?

    I’ll report back with any findings host side.

    Hi Rich,

    Could you provide us with FTP or cPanel access so we can have a more in-depth look at this and see what could be causing it because we can’t replicate this on a couple of our test sites?
