    Cant post, Cant save, Cant moderate comments.

    What would be causing this? Is it a database problem? Permissions?

    Sorry for createing a new thread but I want to make my problem clear and make it easy for anyone running into the same problem.

    -I have restored my backup and ran upgrade.php
    -I have deleted everything on the server and restored
    -I can see the site.
    -I havent deliberatly changed my blog settings.
    -I have deleted the plugin directory and tried it without that.
    -my plugins were turned off when I restored.
    -i have my permissions checked.

    -I get a 500 internal server error when it fails.
    -I have contacted my host in order to look at the server files.

    Anyone know anything else I could do? I'm lost and frustrated. Any tip at all would be great.

    Dumb question, did you check the file permissions on the server? Not sure what exactly they're supposed to be. (possibly 666)

    I have 755 for the folders and 644 for the index.php.
    That worked before I think.

    Do you have a link for your site? It could help in diagnosis.

    Haven't posted it as I was a bit worried about security, I have no visible error messages though. Do you still want the address?

    Security?
    A link would still help as a lot of us have dev tools to help us when we go ro sites.
    If there is some security risk, however...

    Yay. Good luck. I hope you find a solution quicker than me, this is my third day with this problem. Or at least I hope my questions will help you. :)

    I have a hunch that it has something to do with a javascript ERROR. IE6 displays several JS ERRORS from the new-post.php file. Or it could be a malfunction with tinyMCE? All of these ERRORS should be solved when uploading fresh versions from the WP 2.1 edition, but don't? hmmm... i'm stuck!

    @ merrua
    Nothing obvious stands out and I can't reproduce it. Hopefully a solution will surface soon.

    Drat. Thanks anyway. Could you comment?

    I tried to comment. Comment went through but I was shown a 500 internal server error.
    Does that mean anythin to anyone?
    Posts on the other hand have completely failed.

    I uppdated the "Tinymce" from tinymce.moxiecode.com! But the same problem stands...

    Try this: Open your "write post" screen (with your WYSIWYG enabled) then press ctrl and f5 together. This forces a full page reload.
    When I did that, after I uploaded the "tinymce" from tinymce.moxiecode.com, the old wp2.0 WYSIWYG appeard fully working. I guess the old tinymce works better?

    Dont forget to combine the original tinymce with the new tinymce. Overwrite the old files with the new files but also keep the WP files from the old tinymce...

    Does that make any sence?

    I now have access to my log files. Since I cant post to my blog, or save a post. And that strange thing happened with commnets. What should I be looking for.
    There is an error about my customer header (maybe), could that be the cause?

    >>FastCGI: incomplete headers (0 bytes) received from server

    Behavior on the blog.

    -It used to be I couldnt moderate comments. But the blog let me do so without crashing when I tested this morning.
    -When I moderated indivual comments it deletes them then crashs.
    -New comments dont show on the main blog page but do show in the post page.
    -tried to save a post, 500 error, no sign of the message.
    -tried to publish a post, 500 error, no sign of the message

    I get the same WYSIWYG loading errors on my page. The editor shows up, but you can't type in the box (there's no cursor).

    This is highly disappointing. I've never downloaded a CMS that was broken right out of the box! Why hasn't this been resolved?
