Error Message

Post by Brian1969 » Fri Oct 20, 2006 11:43 pm

I'm getting this error message quite frequently since I last updated. It happens in the "results" window after publishing a post:

Sending XML-RPC ping to host rpc.blogrolling.com...Success!!
Sending XML-RPC ping to host rpc.technorati.com...Connection timed out

Notice: Connection timed out in /hsphere/local/home/xxxx/xxxx/bundled-libs/PEAR.php on line 848
Connection timed out


What is this, what does it mean, and how can I fix it? It's driving me crazy!

I know that if I later go back and add something to a post that gave me this error, it republishes, and I end up with two versions.

I kept getting this error when I updated my XML-RPC plugin. I uninstalled/reinstalled the plugin and now everything works fine. Do you also have the XML-RPC plugin installed?

Unless you mean the "announce entries", then the answer is no.

Hi!

The error just means that your blog cannot connect to the rpc.technorati.com server, because either the server is down or technorati is just slow.

It's sadly nothing you can do on your end, you can only disable sending pings to technorati or wait until their server is up again :)

HTH,

You can check how long your server waits until declaring timeout. Default is 30 seconds, might be worth to try with 60 seconds (if PEAR uses your php timeouts?)?

It was never a problem until I updated a month or so ago. Now, it's like every tenth post is a problem. And if I go back and add something to it, it double-posts, so I have to delete one.

I tell you, I don't know what's going on, but it just seems like with every update, this thing just gets worse and worse.

I like Serendipity, because it's simple as heck to use, but geez...it's rapidly becoming a nightmare to maintain.

Hi!

Sadly what you describe really boils down to server problems! Disable trackbacks, and you should be fine without a problem, because no network connections are made then anymore.

PHP is pretty whacky on handling timeout situations, so there isn't a thing serendipity could do to improve that. :-/

Best regards,
