every grab articles from amazon or another else, using wp robot, always show this message.. cURL Error Number 7: couldn't connect to host.


This problem just begun 1 week ago. do you know how to resolve this problem ! thanks for all. :P


Submit a ticket however it simply means cURL can't connect to the host - this either means the port you're using (should be 80 or 443 which are open) are blocked or the host is down / the server is seeing it as down.

Additionally, were you able to get this to work before? Amazon might have change the ports recently. They may or may not use the traditional ports. You can possibly use an NMAP too to sniff which ports are on "listen" state from their end.
