The Weird WordPress Error from on Line 6

If you encountered this error, just like me, then you can’t find a solution online because when you Google the error it will just show you the sites that are currently encountering the error. Don’t be sad and don’t lose hope, I found a solution that might help you.

The error is basically like this:
Warning: file_get_contents( [function.file-get-contents]: failed to open stream: Connection timed out in /home/vhosts/ on line 6

It took me a while to fix the error. I changed the theme, removed the plugins, but to no avail.

It was only solved when I deleted the tables inside my MySQL database. There are 4 tables that you need to delete. The tables with “maxblogpress affiliate thingy”. My apologies for not providing a screen shot, but you can check it inside your phpMyadmin and just drop those tables.

And after dropping those tables your WordPress site will be fixed instantly!

I hope this post helps… To those who need it!

    Maybe you need to update your wordpress installation.
