Update Failed: Download failed. cURL error 7

I am trying to update the Gravity Forms plugin on my WordPress site and get the following error:

Update Failed: Download failed. cURL error 7:

Any idea why? Thanks.



  • This is likely due to a permission problem or firewall. Check the Outgoing Connections manager in your server control panel: /advanced/outgoing-connections/

    Look for a blocked connection from "amzwebservices" or something similar to it. It may be the most recent blocked connection and you may need to do this several times as the IP or host server for updated plugin may change.

  • Great thanks. The URL was in the blocked connections as you mentioned. It is: s3-1.amazonaws.com

    I had to unblock it 4 times and the plugin updated automatically. Thank you.
