Unable to find Akismet servers.

A DNS problem or firewall is preventing all access from your web server to Akismet.com. Akismet cannot work correctly until this is fixed. Please contact your web host or firewall administrator and give them this information about Akismet and firewalls.

Sounds like a networking problem

Have you checked that you have network connectivity? The error suggests that its a network problem so thats a good place to start.

try pinging www.google.com or similar from within your appliance. Does that work?

If you want further help it'd be good to get a bit more info about your setup. Things such as what environment you are using (bare metal/virtual) and if virtual, then which platform (VMware Server/VirtualBox/etc) and what networking you are using (bridged/NAT/host only).

DNS is not working

Your DNS is not working.  What do you have in /etc/resolv.conf?

# Dynamic resolv.conf(5) file for glibc resolver(3) generated by resolvconf(8)

this is written in resolv.conf

I didn`t do the DNS config.
