A Strange Problem -- caused a lot large CORE file (5 posts)

    Just have my blog transfered from one host to another. Copy all the files and database, and all goes well. But I find there are many large files (more than 100M) in the wp-admin, named core.22222 (4 or 5 numbers).

    Aften Google it, I know that core files are created automatically when a process corrupted in *nix. And the files naturally fall in the folder where the problem comes about.

    And then I try every page of administration, found that every time I open index.php, the core file comes. I compare the index.php to other files such as link.php, plugin.php. I delete the lines where require includes/dashboard.php. Refresh the wp-admin/index.php, no core file is generated any more. Changed to the original files requiring includes/dashboard.php, the core files appare again.

    If someone is troubled by the LARGE core files, you just need to delete several lines in wp-admin/index.php, and the world become perfect again.

    The dashboard.php is 30k, so I don't anlyze it. I'm not sure whether it's a BUG or just conflicts with my host setting.

    Hope WP team will make it clear.


    PS, here is my blog, it works fine now :p http://offmask.com

    WP can't create core files. I think you'll have to solve this in cooperation with your web host.

    I see. I just can't be sure what caused the process corrupted...

    Now when I open the edit-comments.php, the core comes again...

    So maybe some query sentence conflict with the setting?

    Check your PHP version, your MySql version, and your Apache version. You need PHP 4.3 or better and MySql 4.0 or better. Take a look at your error logs also. If the host meets those requirements the best bet for finding the cause of this is those error logs.
