Thanks for posting your question about the "cURL error 6: Could not resolve host: http" error you are experiencing when using the CommentLuv plugin for WordPress. I'm sorry to see you are experiencing issues. I recommend reviewing the configuration of that plugin to determine what cURL command is being run. This will help diagnose any DNS issues that may be occuring. According to the cURL documentation the cURL command is unable to resolve DNS for it to resolve :


Couldn't resolve host. The given remote host was not resolved.

If you can locate what the request is looking for, then you can further investigate how to correct this error with resolving the DNS. I hope this helps!
