Akismet on Tophost

I was quite happy on receiving some comments on my blog. I soon realized it was all spam though!

Just a quick tip if, for some reason, you’re trying to make Akismet for WordPress working on Tophost (an italian hosting provider).

If your Akismet configuration tells you that it cannot reach the servers, go to your website Tophost cpannel, open up the PHP configuration screen and set “allow url fopen” to On.

It can happen that changing this or other settings has no effect. In that case, in the same screen, switch to PHP4 and than back to PHP5; than re-apply the “allow url fopen” setting.
