Error Opening Socket
« on: January 22, 2013, 10:28:00 AM »
I get an error message when trying to crawl my site for the first time.

There was an error while retrieving the URL specified: [external links are visible to admins only]
Error message: Error opening socket to centurionsafetysigns.co.uk
HTTP Code:

HTTP headers:
x_csize: 0

HTTP output:

Seems like quite a common error?

I have tried entering the site's IP address in advanced settings. No change.

Please help!

I fiddled around with it and if you have a store or site or anything that uses php curl than you need to check the box use php curl in the config i did that and no more errors so far i will update when complete.

I am now having the same issues with my site.  It worked fine initially and now I get an error not sure how that is possible.  I have uninstalled and reinstalled and still get the same issue now.

Probably there is a configuration problem - it looks like your server doesn't allow local network connections via port 80 (http) - as a result sitemap generator is not able to crawl the site. This is usually related to firewall installed at the host - could you please contact your hosting support regarding this?
