I recently migrated my site the upgraded Mollom to 6.x-2.0 and got the message "Invalid API keys" with the logs saying network errors.

I have seen this:



None of the suggestions work for me. However, downgrading Mollom to 6.x-1.16 fixes the problem.

My set up:

Drupal 6.x.26 on Apache (Redhat).

Has anyone else experienced this and found a work around. For now I have version 6.x-1.16 but would like to upgrade to 6.x-2.0

I have even recreated the public and private keys on Mollom.com but it did not fix the problem when on 6.x-2.0

Can you double-check the server time on which your site is hosted?

Most often, the Invalid API keys error is caused by a too high offset of the server time. The time needs to be synchronized with world clocks.

i'm having the same problem, but have whitelisted the services and have also set my server clock correctly to synch w/ the world clocks.

any other suggestions?

I'm changing this to a bug report. If the problem is the server's clock, the error message should not say the API keys are invalid.

We've introduced better error handling for the server time offset problem in:
#1649326: Concise error messages in case the local server time is not synchronized with universal time

That patch hasn't been backported to 6.x-2.x yet, but I will try to do that as soon as possible (along with some other recent improvements from 7.x-2.x).
