publishing sometimes takes me to post.php 404 page! (9 posts)

    I have searched the forum and this problem was last noticed by some folks with WordPress 2.x edition like four years ago.

    I just moved to a new server and this problem is happening on it alone.

    It has APC Cache enabled. I am running a caching plugin on one of the blogs but apparently the problem is universal. because it's happening on all blogs whether they are running caching plugin or not.

    I have googled around and i dont think apc cache hampers wordpress cache plugins. though you never know.

    I publish a post. 20% of the times, it would take me to a 404 page on the site with address bar showing post.php link. Around 80% of these redirects would still publish the post properly. rest of the times, the post is not published at all.

    This is becoming a major annoyance. Can anyone point out to the source of the problem?

    Some updates...

    It is happening on WordPress MU edition too (On WordPress 3.0.1).

    I have disabled RSS related plugins (rss cloud and pushpress).

    I have also removed pingomatic from the backend ping list. That was one of the suggestions in older threads (from 4 years ago!).

    I still face the above problem.

    another update. today i got a 404 on trying to access the post-new.php page!

    this is getting rather insane. i have googled around a lot. tried anything that could be the reason behind this. i am simply failing to pinpoint the reason behind this bug.

    Now I have clean setup with defualt template and no plugins. But The problem is not solved.

    Error logs are empty.

    god this problem is driving me nuts. i have upgraded mysql to 5.1 which is the latest offered by cpanel.

    memory limit is high. number of connections is also set at a reasonable high limit.

    there is nothing in error logs so the server guy is not able to pinpoint the problem!

    Did you tried to move your blog to shared hosting? just for test purpose.

    According to some helpful support staff at dreamhost, it looks like (in my case at least) it's being caused by running close to the memory limits.

    Try checking for abuse from a specific IP or processes that have high CPU usage.
