There’s an issue I’m having with WordPress. I’ve not used my website for a while, when I came back I wanted to update the pages and add some new ones.
When I got back, WordPress had an update available to version 3.0.1. I used the auto-update feature in the Dashboard to install this. After posting a shitload of regular blog posts, that all went without a hitch, I went to create the first new page. (the 101 in 1001 ). I created it as a placeholder page first. I published this page, and that went without problems.
A while later I wanted to edit the page to put the actual content in, and now every time I try to edit that page, it times out on me. I get the dreaded “The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading” thing. Refreshing makes no difference, it just keeps on timing out. Trying to update with less content (the list is rather long) makes no difference either. About this time I noticed posting new pages, in addition to editing existing ones, was also not happening. Even posting blog posts sometimes times out.
Thinking the update hadn’t gone right, I then manually replaced all the files with the updated 3.0.1 files. Still no change. I tried changing the permissions on the post.php file to make it not just read-write-executable by admin, but also read-write-executable for group and public. This didn’t help either, so I changed that back.
So then I hit Google to try and figure this out, however I can’t find anything. Well, I found http://techsalsa.com/solved-404-error-after-update-or-save-post-in-wordpress, somewhat applicable, but that was a couple versions ago. That person edited the .htaccess file. I tried both edits described in the link, but no luck.
I also looked through my hosting providers’ FAQ, they mentioned a line
AddHandler x-httpd-php5 .phpto add to the .htaccess file to make php be parsed by PHP 5 (since they have both 4 and 5 installed and supported). Tried that, no luck.
So, here I am, stuck. I contacted my hosting provider with this (no response yet), to see if it’s something server side, and I’m posting it here to see if there are some bright minds over there who can help me figure it out.
