Subject: Could not contact plugin repository
Hi,
I am deploying dokuwiki on a AWS EC2 machine.
The apache server is contained inside a Docker container.

Locally all was working.
When I move the Docker container to AWS EC2 machine, the plugin repository looks not accessible. The message is:
The plugin repository could not be contacted. Make sure your server is allowed to contact www.dokuwiki.org and check your proxy settings.

Why?

Port 80 and 443 are opened.
Should I configure a proxy?
What do I need to do in order to make the plugin repository accessible from the dokuwiki app?
What should I look at in order to make the plugin repository work?

Thanks

Basically, the problem is that the GET request
Host: www.dokuwiki.org
Connection: Keep-Alive
GET /lib/plugins/pluginrepo/api.php?cmd=ping

returns 404.
But the outbound traffic is allowed, the port 80 is open...don't know what to do.

I had your same problem https://forum.dokuwiki.org/thread/12017. It seems to be a well-known problem (read this, at the bottom of the page, https://www.dokuwiki.org/plugin:plu…?s%5B%5D=ssl#Another… and also this https://forum.dokuwiki.org/thread/12096) but the reason is your host server and not dokuwiki.

Hi... Just giving my own experience in case it is usefull to someone.

I had the same problem on a freshly installed (self hosted) Debian sever (with Apache).
In my case the problem was using IPV6 DNS servers suggested by my ISP (Free).
