We have tried pinging Wordpress Org website using our server and the website returned the above results. If wordpress.org is down for us too there is nothing you can do except waiting. Probably the server is overloaded, down or unreachable because of a network problem, outage or a website maintenance is in progress...

Can't Access Wordpress Org - Troubleshooting Instructions

If the site is UP but you cant access the page, try one of the below solutions:

Browser Related Problems

Force a full refresh for the site. This can be achieved by pressing CTRL + F5 keys at the same time on your favourite browser (Firefox, Chrome, Explorer, etc.)

Clear the temporary cache and cookies on your browser to make sure that you have the most recent version of the web page. For instructions choose your browser :

Fix DNS Problems

A Domain Name System (DNS) allows a site IP address (192.168.x.x) to be identified with words (*.com) in order to be remembered more easily, like a phonebook for websites. This service is usually provided by your ISP.

Clear your local DNS cache to make sure that you grab the most recent cache that your ISP has. For Windows - (Start > Command Prompt > type "ipconfig /flushdns" and hit enter). For details choose your operating system :

If you can access a website at office or from a 3G network yet it's not working on your computer, it is a good idea to use an alternative DNS service other than your ISPs. OpenDNS or Google Public DNS are both excellent and free public DNS services.

Check our help page for step-by-step instructions on how to change your DNS.

I am on my blog but cannot get from one post to another. Created a blog post, saved it as I worked on it for the last 3 hours and now it is gone. I called Hostgator to see if they were having any issues and they are not... they can t see my blog post either.

It seems to be a pattern that on the weekends in the afternoon, I can't access my site as it seems to go in and out... Which is a real bummer as some of us have full-time jobs and only blog on the weekend...

I've requested a password reset from WordPress about an hour ago. No link has shown up in my email, and I've confirmed that the email is working fine.

I cannot connect to my wordpress blog right now. I have tried also to get a new password thinking that might be a problem with the old one and even though I've attempted this 6 times, I have not received an e-mail back so that I can change the password.
