API Error: cURL error 28: Operation timed out after 30001 milliseconds with 0 b

    I have been struggling to run the SEO Analysis tool for my website, both through WP & your website. Via WP I get the error ‘ API Error: cURL error 28: Operation timed out after 30001 milliseconds with 0 bytes received’ & via your website (https://rankmath.com/tools/seo-analyzer/) I get ‘Oops! That just happened Sorry, an error occurred. Please try again later or contact us.’

    I note from your support page that I can change the plugin, specifically line 380, from 30 to 60. As I am not a ‘techie’ person & before making any changes, are you able to confirm I am in the right place to make these changes as per the image below.

    As for why things don’t work via your website, maybe you can look into this.

    Thank you.
