How To Fix WHMCS – Curl Error – Couldn’t Resolve Host (6)

After installing WHMCS, nothing can be more annoying than obscure errors popping up. Not only are these errors frustrating and confusing, but they get in the way of your ultimate goal: automating your hosting plan reselling. And that can cost you money.

So how can we fix this error and get back to business fast?

Investigate Possible DNS Issues

Your WHMCS site does not exist on an island, it needs to reach out to WHMCS servers to exchange important bits of data.

So you may need to ask yourself some questions:

  • Are you hosting your site on a local server?
  • Is your installation able to connect out to the web?
  • Are there firewalls or security systems that might be blocking your app?

If you have trouble answering any of these questions, you should bring them to your IT manager or developer. They should be able to provide you with the information you need.

Connect Your WHMCS License Key

If you have not done so already, you must connect your WHMCS license key in order for the app to work correctly. Lacking the proper license may be part of the problem.

Remember, as a hosting plan reseller, you get a free WHMCS license key. All you need to do is grab your free license key from your Account Management Panel.
