Support » Fixing WordPress » 404 Error when saving plugin settings or media meta data

  • I have been working on this website for awhile then noticed one day that when I changed some meta information for a photo (Title) and clicked Update that I got a 404 error and the new information was not saved.

    I also cannot update settings for plugins. Same thing, 404 error.

    I can however add new photos and update poss and pages.

    I noticed that the backups for the site went from 35MB to about 402MB around the same time I started seeing the problem. I’ve added about 10-15 new photos, but they were low resolution and I wouldn’t think that they would cause a 10x increase.

    I tried optimizing my tables via ManageWP, didn’t fix it.

    Scanning through similar threads, I found information and increasing the memory limit by adding define('WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '96M'); to the wp-config.php and wp-settings.php files. This did not work.

    I also created a php.ini file in the site’s /public_html folder with the code memory_limit = 92M in it.

    I’ve read some threads about some server security mod updates and fixes, but couldn’t find specific code. Would I need to talk to my host about this?

    Any thoughts on how to solve this would be greatly appreciated.

  • I also checked my error.log file and noticed these lines that were written the day the problem started:

    [01-Jul-2012 20:09:51] PHP Fatal error:  Allowed memory size of 67108864 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 262198 bytes) in /home3/<username>/public_html/SRCS/wp_srcs/wp-includes/functions.php on line 316

    When I look at line 316 in the wp-includes/functions.php file it is:

    314  function maybe_serialize( $data ) {
    315	if ( is_array( $data ) || is_object( $data ) )
    316		return serialize( $data );

    While the line 296 in the wpfmp.class.php file is blank…. do I need to view the code without comments somehow to get the right executed line (I’m using Dreamweaver).
