I'm having an issue with my new WordPress installation. Whenever I make a post, upon clicking the "Save As Draft" button or "Publish" button, the connection hangs for a bit, then a I get a connection dropped/reset error and the post does not Publish. When I go back to the main Post Admin area though, the post is listed in Draft form, but sometimes is missing the things I did most recently (maybe a result of an autosave?). Using the Quick-Edit option I can make publish the posts.
I'm thinking the timeout error may be a server thing, but I would like to troubleshoot it more. Any suggestions on how to narrow down the issue?
