  • Resolved Jamie Gill


    Hi Guys,

    I am struggling with my site. All of a sudden it won’t save/publish/trash posts or pages. I cant change Themes, Activate plugins basically I can navigate around the backend but cant action anything at all.

    I disabled all my plugins and all themes except twentytwelve so it was forcing it back to its basics and same issues any idea on what could be causing this?

    The URL is :-
    I setup a phpinfo file and the PHP is 5.2, Im a little stumped

    Any information would be greatfully received.

  • Have you tried:
    resetting the plugins folder by FTP or PhpMyAdmin. Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems.

    – re-uploading all files & folders – except the wp-content folder – from a fresh download of your current version of WordPress. Make sure that you delete the old copies of files & folder before uploading the new ones.

    Hi Esmi,

    Thank you for your reply yes I have carried out the usual procedures for fixing this kind of issue including the two suggestions above.

    Never had it where you cant do anything at all I cant even add a user.

    When did you last repair your database?

    Hi Esmi,

    Yes I repaired the database. However it sprung to mind regards limitations I logged into the clients CP and looked at the size of the db which was exactly 150MB.

    Turnsout thats the max limit of there hosting package, so its not letting WordPress write anything to the DB. Thanks for your help on this one matey.


    Have a look at

    Perhaps you can clean some of the crud out of the database to bring its size down? I’d also suggest installing to stop post revisions filling up the database.
