[Resolved] 404 Not found when updating options
I’ve browsed through the threads and found several people have had the same problem as I in this thread http://wordpress.org/support/topic/34165?replies=6 but there seemed to be no definite solution to their problems.
I downloaded and successfully installed WP last night. However when I was trying to change some of the “general options” and click “update” I am directed to http://www.littered.org/wp-admin/updated=true “404 Not Found”
I have installed WP into the root of my domain.
Just wondering if anyone could help shed some light. I would be most thankful 🙂
That seems to be a bug. There ought to be a file there and a
?delineating between the URL and the query string.
You might consider submitting a bug report, if it repeatedly happens.
I have made it’s fix. You can download it at http://www.ishbir.com/wpfix1.zip. Unzip the file to you wp-admin directory and replace the previous options.php file. Test it. If any problem mail me a at webmaster(at)ishbir(dot)com.
Hi Maerk – not sure if there are many other people experiencing the same problem as I, is it worth submitting the bug report?
Hi Ishbir – I’ve tried your options.php file and I’m still having the same problem.
Please download it again. I made the file again and did a mistake. Now it is fixed and tested. Download it from the same link.
Ishbir: What changes did you make to the options.php file? Because if I do a diff on yours and the original one from 2.0.3, I don’t see any differences.
nosila: Do you have mod_security running? If so, read this topic and see if that helps.
Please download the file again and see the diffrences becuase I uploaded the wrong file with the bug again.
Please see the differences in the line
$goback = add_query_arg('options-general.php?updated', 'true', $_SERVER['HTTP_REFERER']);. Firstly it was
$goback = add_query_arg('updated', 'true', $_SERVER['HTTP_REFERER']);
I just did, and it’s still the same as the original.
It’s got this line in your download as well:
$goback = add_query_arg(‘updated’, ‘true’, $_SERVER[‘HTTP_REFERER’]);
Please check it again or download it again and check. This line of ‘$goback’ is different. Open both the files and then navigate to the same line and check it carefully becuase sometime even I can’t see the differences.
That’s why we have comparison tools. 🙂
Both Araxis Merge and good old DOS FC declare the files identical.
Don’t use tools, check it by yourself or download the file again and check it yourself.
I even asked a friend of mine to download it and take a look, but they’re identical for him as well.
