I just recently moved a WordPress install to a new server. I successfully copied everything over, and imported the MySQL databse from the old server, and everything seems to be in working order except for one thing:
New comments from anyone other than my logged-in self do not appear, and the commenter gets no error messages. I searched the database, and the comments ARE there, but labelled as spam.
Sure enough, they were in my Akismet spam queue. But I haven’t changed any settings for Akismet or for commenting. I tried disabling Akismet, but all comments still get zapped as spam (and reappear in Akismet’s net once it’s been reactivated).
I realize that, but that doesn’t seem to be the problem. Moving servers shouldn’t make Akismet stupid all of a sudden. Is there a permissions problem or something somewhere that would make the comment system automatically zap a comment like that?
