Since a few weeks I am having a lot of problems with four different WordPress blogs at the same host. I have seen many posts in this forum, up to a year back, from people with similar problems, but no solutions are given.
I have no plug-ins installed on these blogs, and no modifications. One is version 2.0 and the others are 2.0.2. My host says they haven't changed anything and cannot find anything wrong.
The problems are:
1. The Dashboard takes a very long to load, and when it does it only displays the titles 'Dashboard' and 'Last Activity', but no other information. When I comment out the RSS lines in the index.php of the Dashboard the page loads okay.
2. When I publish a post, or save an existing post, that has a link, the page will take ages to load (but the post appears on the site instantly) and eventually post.php comes back with a blank page, or alternatively I get a page not found. The update services field is empty.
3. The most annoying problem is that sometimes when I publish a post the post appears TWICE on the blog, each with a unique ID. I notice that when I click Publish the first one is published right away, then the post.php takes a very long time to load and then when it gives a blank page, or page not found, the duplicate post appears on the site.
My host cannot find anything out of the ordinary, but when they rebooted the Apache server a few times, every time the problems were resolved, but only for a couple of hours, then the problems return.
Is there anyone here that can help me? Is there something that I can ask my host to check on the server? Could they have turned off RSS and pinging on the shared server that I'm on?
