Support » Fixing WordPress » Dashboard Pages Dropped connection

    Apologies if this has been covered elsewhere, but I could not find an answer.

    I am running a self hosted site using version 3.5.1 and have run into a problem this morning whilst adding a page.

    When I click on the Pages tab on the Dashboard, I get a 10 sec delay before I get a message saying that the connection has been dropped. It is trying to run the query edit.php?post_type=page when it fails.

    Everything else is working, I can still add pages, set their order in themes etc, but cannot access the pages tab.

    I think that this points to a small corruption, but being a relative newbie, I do not know where to start looking.

    I would be very greatful for any help that anyone can offer.

  • I would think it would be a server issue but if everything else is working fine then I guess not. It could be possible that you have a corrupt install.

    The Error message is usually only a MySQL database error and not a WordPress( I have never seem WordPress use this error).

    Did you install WordPress using a automatic installer or did you Upload it and install it?

    Hi Justin,

    I initially installed the server at the back end of last year, but upgraded it manually three days ago.

    Everything was working perfectly until I added a new page earlier today, a very simple add, just some text. After publishing the page, the error started to appear.

    The site is hosted on an internal apache based server running suse linux 10. I have rebooted the server and have tried various different client pc’s and mac’s all showing the same problem.

    I suspect a corrupt table in the database or maybe the php file itself has been damaged.

    Have you tried repairing your tables in the database?

    I have run the repair.php that is located within the wp-admin/maint directory. This reports that the database is ok. I have also run the optimizer and again everything appears to be in order.

    It might be that I will have to redownload the latest version and reinstall to see if the problem is cleared.

    Reinstalling/Overriding is a possibility.

    Hi I think that I have isolated the problem. When clicking on the Pages link on the dashboard, it attempts to make a connection using https which I have not got in place on my server, all over connections are made via plain http.

    Do you have any idea where I need to look within the settings to disable this so that it uses a plain http call?

    Many thanks

    Finally got to the bottom of this, it is being caused by the WP-ecommerce plug in. I have disabled the plug in and now have full access to the Pages Dashboard.

    Many thanks for your input Justin, very much appreciated.
