cURL error 6: Could not resolve host

I am trying to enter an API key for my Mailchimp plugin for my WordPress website and I get this error: cURL error 6: Could not resolve host

Plugin: Mailchimp for Woocommerce Settings Error: Mailchimp says: API Request Error - cURL error 6: Could not resolve host:

Is there a fix for this? Running the latest Apache, PHP, Woocommerce and WordPress versions.

Hello @pjha , I also have the same problem with my droplet. I have followed all the steps that @romeobraindead and @thepouringarts did.

Can you suggest, how to make it permanent. I need that it work please.

Hey there!

The resolvers are having issues. The resolvers are specified in the /etc/resolv.conf file and are set based on the network configuration scripts on the Droplet. You can try rebooting the Droplet once and if the issue still persists, you can try to manually specifying nameserver IP entries in the /etc/resolv.conf file to any of the following for testing. the format looks like this:

nameserver IP.AD.DR.ESS

Google public name servers: nameserver nameserver

OpenDNS nameserver nameserver

Let me know how it goes.
