Hi @jose.rameriz -sorry for the delay in coming back to you on this!


Many WordPress issue like this come from a connection issue. Could I ask you to check out this section of our help guide to run through the trouble shooting tips there:


If that doesn’t work are you using the Zapier WordPress integration? A webhooks step? Or something else to connect to WordPress? Thanks!

Hi @Danvers, thank you for your response!

This problem was actually an outdated PHP version. The version was using TLS 1.0 so we needed a higher TLS security. Once we updated PHP it automatically was fixed!
