I installed the Mailchimp module and created an account on their site. I also created a first list and have created an api-key which i pasted into the appropriate field of the module. However, when i try to connect to their site via the settings-page of the module (e.g. Refresh lists from MailChimp), the link to admin.mailchimp.com/ "becomes"

> https://us1.admin.mailchimp.com/

in my browser. Then i get the following error:

> Could not connect (0 - php_network_getaddresses: getaddrinfo failed: Name or service not known)

When i browse to my account site directly, after the login, the url is

> https://us6.admin.mailchimp.com/

I already cleared the browser-cookies, but with no effort.
Any idea?

Thanks in advance.

BTW. I'm located in Germany, if that's any help...

The "refresh lists" link should be local. I'm not sure where you're seeing a link directly to the admin interface, but that shouldn't be relevant: at best it's a convenience.

Can you give me the exact path you are at and the name of the link you are seeing that appears to be wrong?

“And now our watch [for support of the 7.x-2.x version of the MailChimp module] has ended…” With the approaching deprecation of MailChimp’s API version 2.0, I’m sad to say we too must turn the page. This branch will become unsupported in early October and officially deprecated by the end of this year (2016).

Fret not! The 7.x-4.x and 8.x versions come highly recommended. Both are using Mailchimp’s new API 3.0 and are being actively maintained. If you find this issue still exists on either the 7.x-4.x or 8.x branches, let us know by opening a new ticket. “What is dead may never die, but rises again, harder and stronger!”
