OK, I am having a really bizarre set of errors on my WordPress site this morning. Hope y'all can help, cause I'm baffled.
Got a note from one of my users telling me my site was down. Went to check it out and discoverd it seemed to be working fine. But a little more poking around revealed lots of weirdness.
*I can access the site as usual using Safari on Mac OS X. If I use Firefox on OS X, though, I just get a blank page when I access the site; when I try to view source, it's similarly blank. Other Safari-derived OS X browers, like Shiira and Camino, work fine.
*I was able to access the site OK with IE7 and Firefox on Windows XP. My user, however, tells me that when he tried to access it with IE7, he got an "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage" error.
*Trying to post comments doesn't work on any browser/OS combo from where I sit. On the Mozilla-derived browsers, I just get blank pages. On IE, I get an "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage" error. On Safari, I get "Safari can’t open the page “http://joshreads.com/?p=1407#comment-422000” because the server unexpectedly dropped the connection, which sometimes occurs when the server is busy. You might be able to open the page later."
*I can still access the WP control panel and create new posts with any browers that can access the main site. One thing I note is that none of the stuff on the dashboard page that draws from other sites -- the "What links here" from Technorati or any of the feeds on WordPress news -- is not appearing.
*Other sites hosted on the same server are working fine -- including a PHPBB site running off of the same PHP install.
I'm using 2.3.1 because I upgrade via Fantastico and it doesn't seem to have picked up 2.3.2 yet. Anyone with any idea on even where to start with this, help! My site is at http://joshreads.com if you want to take a look.
Update I should add that I didn't change anything about the site at the time the errros started -- I didn't even put up a new post. I do have ads on the site that change automatically from time to time but the problems seem to be affecting areas of the site (like the dashboard) that don't have ads on them.
