Piwik 3.0.1 - WARNING: Error while getting SEO stats (domain age)

Since I have upgraded to Piwik 3.0.1 the following warning shows up most of the time:

WARNING: Error while getting SEO stats (domain age): curl_exec: Connection timed out after 10001 milliseconds. Hostname requested was: www.whois.com

How can I debug this?

Anyone? I am still looking for a solution.

I had the same problem (under release 3.03)

To solve it :
1/ edit the file /plugins/SEO/Metric/DomainAge.php
2/ modify lines 77, 97, 117
3) replace http with https

like this
$data = $this->getUrl(‘Wayback Machine’ . urlencode($domain));
$data = $this->getUrl(‘WHOIS Search, Domain Name, Website, and IP Tools - Who.is’ . urlencode($domain));
$data = $this->getUrl(‘Whois.com - Free Whois Lookup’ . urlencode($domain));

and that’s all!

Have some fun!

thanks for sharing, mephivio! This worked like a charm. The warning disappeared.
