What does "couldn't connect to host" mean?
In order to retrieve a web page, the client (in this case a Wormly monitoring node) needs to first establish a connection to your web server on TCP port 80.
This error indicates that your web server did not accept our TCP connection request, and hence the HTTP Request could not be conducted.
Causes of this may include - but are not limited to:
- Crashed or failed web server processes
- Firewall mis-configuration
- Network or router failure
