Extension Manager

Cannot update extensions

Problem with updating extensions (incl. Ext Manager) on some sites - but other sites working perfectly.
All sites have Joomla 3.8.4 and PHP 7.x (no difference with 7.0 or 7.1)
I have checked with one.com (all sites hosted there) and there are no IP blocked and all domains are exactly the same.

Working domains

Non-working domains
kerikoweb.se (preferrable for testing - it's my own)

Could not retrieve data from the Regular Labs website. Please try again later.

This is not something within my control.
Usually these things happen because of some (temporary) block at your host or ISP. Usually it solves itself within a few days.
Ask your host if they can see why the connection to my download server is being blocked.

That's the thing.
I talked to one.com support over 1,5 hours last night:
(12:11:58) Jason: For the curl and fopen() upon checking in here we do support it.
(12:12:36) Jason: And for the IP address of download.regularlabs.com (, as per checking we do not block any IP.

So from their side all of my domains should have the same setup.
Are you sure that Siteground (your server) is not blocking or having issues from some of my domains?

I have had this issue for several weeks now.

I have asked SiteGround, but I don't expect that they will find anything.
The IPs of the websites that are not working are all in the 46.30.213.* range. However, some of the domains where it is working are also in that range. So I don't believe the issue is on IP blocking level.

It could be due to Joomla security/firewall extensions you might have installed.
Or some weird rule in the .htaccess (AdminTools?)

SiteGround is indeed not blocking these IPs.

Can you give me (super) admin and (s)ftp access to one of the websites where you have the issue?
You can use the 'Hidden text' button in the forum editor to hide the confidential information.

I do bot usually have any specific security extensions/functions - but please go ahead and check my primary site/domain:

The same result as:

This could be due to some 'https_ssl_verify' setting on your server...
