Unable to import theme data wordpress droplet

I have setup wordpress droplet on X.X.X.X. I have setup https using cloudfare.

Whenever I try to install theme I get this error :

An error occurred while fetching file from:! Reason: http_request_failed - cURL error 7: Failed to connect to port 443: Connection refused.

I tried sshing into instance and curl -vv . But there also I got

curl: (7) Failed to connect to port 443: Connection refused

I checked ufw and it seems 443 is enabled.

@MattIPv4 , Oh man. That solved it ! Not sure exactly what the issue was.

Hey @MattIPv4 ,

it doesnt work when executing the same command from the local machine itself.

Hey @bestnerdever,

It looks like the issue you were experiencing has now been resolved as when I make a curl request to, it works fine, returning the content of the website. Additionally, if I open the XML file that was failing in my browser, it finds the content correctly.

I’d love to know what the issue was and how you resolved it! - Matt.
