Today I noticed that I cannot save any posts on one of the wordpress installs I run on my server.
I did a couple of tests and found out: I can save pages and "simple" posts. Simple as in not many categories and taxonomies involved. tested a few wordpress isntalls, and the new ones, could save posts just fine, the more elaborate ones, i.e. can't. The saving simply times out in the browser.
Checked my server logs and found this:
188.8.131.52 - - [22/Mar/2012:14:46:34 +0100] "POST /wp-admin/post.php HTTP/1.1" 500 829 "http://www.premaman.co.za/wp-admin/post.php?post=146&action=edit" "Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10_7_3) AppleWebKit/535.19 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/18.0.1025.109 Safari/535.19"
which seems to be a server 500 error and
(70007)The timeout specified has expired: mod_fcgid: can't get data from http client
this seems to be a fast_CGI timeout error but which value to raise?
found these possible ones:
<tmpl_if name='fastcgi_config_syntax' op='==' value='2'> FcgidIdleTimeout 300 FcgidProcessLifeTime 3600 # FcgidMaxProcesses 1000 FcgidMinProcessesPerClass 0 FcgidMaxProcessesPerClass 100 FcgidConnectTimeout 30 FcgidIOTimeout 360 FcgidBusyTimeout 300 FcgidMaxRequestLen 1073741824 <tmpl_else> IdleTimeout 300 ProcessLifeTime 3600 # MaxProcessCount 1000 DefaultMinClassProcessCount 0 DefaultMaxClassProcessCount 100 IPCConnectTimeout 30 IPCCommTimeout 360 BusyTimeout 300 </tmpl_if>
this is the template my control panel uses for new vhosts.
any other ideas what logs to check or how to get more info?
