Support » Fixing WordPress » CGI error when trying to search for a non-existent

  • For some reason, when you type a word into the search box and it doesn’t exist, I’m getting the following error:
    CGI Error
    The specified CGI application misbehaved by not returning a complete set of HTTP headers.
    I’m getting this on, which is running .72. I tested this before, and it wasn’t throwing this error.
    My new site, running 1.1-beta, does not throw the error (same host.)
    Any ideas?

  • The only thing I can suggest is that you update from 0.72 ’cause it’s ancient 😛

    Well, that’s coming, but since I’ve hacked so many of the core files on this particular installation, it’s not as easy as it sounds…I have to make sure I don’t break anything.
    However, I haven’t made any functionality changes to this site in a while…just been adding posts. So, it’s bizarre that the search function would all of a sudden break. I’m hoping someone could tell me which files the search function uses, so I can look in there and see if something is amiss.
