Disqus problem with wordpress “unable to connect to the disqus api servers”

I recently installed Disqus plugin for WordPress; however, I have been receiving this message “unable to connect to the disqus api servers.” By looking into the source code, it looks like curl is the problem! more specifically the _dsq_curl_urlopen() function, but I did not investigate this error further. As fortunately, we can easily switch to the alternative function _dsq_fsockopen_urlopen().

Dynamic Content Caching using Lighty + mod_magnet + lua

*Updated 11 Jan 2007 to include luazlib, fix lighty config file and add zlib decoding to cache.lua for older browsers
Since I read the documentations for mod_cml, I was very excited to use this module since caching using PHP running as FastCGI is not helping much during server peak load. However, mod_cml was replaced by mod_magnet which is more flexible and gives more control over request handling in Lighttpd. This Article will focus on caching your PHP scripts using Lua and mod_magnet under Lighttpd,
