[resolved] Parts of WordPress site not showing up/missing (13 posts)

    My wordpress site is missing parts of it and not functioning correctly seemingly randomly. We just looked at it today and am not sure what happening.

    Recently we switched servers, but we had everything functional when last we checked. Can someone please advise us on what might be wrong with the site?

  2. Hi Jack,

    Please disable or delete all plugins and switch to the default theme (Twenty Ten since 3.0). After making these changes does the problem still occur? If no, re-enable everything one by one to see which component causes the problem.

    This is a really old website, so I'm hesitant to make any changes like that. I don't even think the default theme is even an option...Is that the only way to check :/?

    I did check in the plugins option in the admin and I got this error message:

    Internal Server Error

    The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.

    Please contact the server administrator and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error.

    More information about this error may be available in the server error log.

    Ok, I'm still reading some articles and it says it might have something to do with .htcaccess files. The only thing in that file is:

    addhandler x-httpd-php-cgi .php
    addhandler x-httpd-php5-cgi .php5

    Is that normal?

    Another update...

    I have tried changing the htaccess file, restarting the plugins, adding a php.ini file, and switching to the default theme. Even with the default theme, it looked like it was showing up weird and I got error messages trying to open the post.

    I can access the wp-admin fine, except for the theme editor and the plugins manager pages...Any idea what would affect these two files?

    I wonder if the css file isn't linked correctly as this thread refers to: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/25-theme-editorphp-http-500-error?replies=10 but I don't understand where I'm supposed to put the /* comment. Thoughts?

    I've call our server host and he asked around to the tech guys and said they had no idea what was wrong. And that the database was connected correctly.

    I am stumped.

    Who are your hosts? Do they still offer PHP 4?

    GoDaddy.

    I wasn't sure, so I just found this thread on GoDaddy:

    No. Starting August 1, 2012 we are removing older versions of PHP from our Linux and Windows servers and replacing them with the newer version of PHP 5.3. These older versions of PHP are no longer supported, and have become outdated. PHP 5.3 is more stable, and most important, more secure.

    So I checked and believe we're using PHP4. I don't know alot about versions...will it break my site if I just change it to PHP5?

    Thanks so much esmi!!! I would never have thought of it and GoDaddy hadn't either. I hope I'm on the right trail now.

    I ran the infophp file and it says we're on PHP 5.2.17.

    I'd suggest that you upgrade WordPress following the instructions in Upgrading_WordPress_Extended.

    Esmi (or whoever)

    I'm slowing updating the wordpress after updating the PHP on the server. Do I need to make sure everything works before updating to the next level? I went from 2.0 to 2.2 ok, but I just did 2.3 and you'll see that I got an error for retrieving the article on the homepage---I got a fatal error message.

    However, now the actual posts pages are loading, which they weren't doing before.

    I tried to upgrade to 2.5 and it broke the site. Please advise....

    The code was broken/bad. Once I deleted it it showed up again.
