I've just installed Drupal6 on my school webserver ad the Status report reveals this configuration error.
HTTP request status Fails
Your system or network configuration does not allow Drupal to access web pages, resulting in reduced functionality. This could be due to your webserver configuration or PHP settings, and should be resolved in order to download information about available updates, fetch aggregator feeds, sign in via OpenID, or use other network-dependent services.
I gather it is a server configuration problem but my searches have revealed nothing to help me fix it.
Can anyone help me solve this one please?
