I'm looking for help troubleshooting "Extensions Download" errors. Like Error: Can't Access CiviCRM Extensions, I've recently been getting lots of "Unable to download extension from ..." lightbox errors. My host confirmed there aren't any SSL protocol errors logged on our end, and suggested the issues are probably with civicrm.org's certificate(s) and/or the encoding of the xml files.
The System Status page reads:
Extension Download Error: The CiviCRM public extensions directory at https://civicrm.org/extdir/ver=4.7.14|cms=Drupal could not be contacted - please check your webserver can make external HTTP requests or contact CiviCRM team on CiviCRM forum.
I'm running CiviCRM 4.7.14 with Drupal 7.52, and can usually troubleshoot issues, but I'm new to CiviCRM and can't think of anything I can do about this. Any suggestions?
