Troubleshoot installation help (9 posts)

    Hi,

    I have installed WordPress on my server via these instructions. My server hostname is thaddeus and runs on an ip of 192.168.0.32.

    WordPress seems to be installed correctly i.e. I can browse to thaddeus/wordpress and login to Dashboard. After that things start to go wrong.

    If I click on 'Updates' all I get in Firefox status bar is 'Waiting for thaddeus' and then after a few minutes I get a web page saying 'The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading'.

    The problem seems to kill some aspects of networking as if I'm logged in via ssh the connection with the server is also lost as is the samba connection.

    The GET request doesn't appear to be recorded in the apache access.log and there is nothing in the error.log.

    The only thing I can do is go upstairs and sign into the server and reboot.

    I should add that I run other sites on the server e.g. Joomla/Gallery/phpvirtualbox all of which behave fine.

    I'm not sure where to start with this...can anyone help please?

    thanks

    Mark

    Is this a local install?

    Yes - I have a home LAN with WordPress on the server - thaddeus and accessing from my laptop.

    [Moved to Localhost Installs]

    You could try that.

    Hi

    Installed but it made no difference. I wonder what could cause networking to fail?
