I’m having a strange timeout problem with my site, http://celtics.twistshow.com.
I’m trying to add some feeds to my feedburner account, specifically http://celtics.twistshow.com/wp-rss2.php.
The problem I’m having is that the HTTP connection isn’t being closed. I’ve been working with the IT Director at FeedBurner to try to diagnose the problem, and this is what we’ve come up with.
When I request that feed (both with and without the cat=6 parameter) using command-line testing tools (curl, wget, etc) your server sends the contents of the XML, all the way down to the closing </rss> element, but it doesn't close the HTTP connection. So what happens is that a request to these files causes our feed fetcher (and browsers as well) to hang, waiting for more data.
...this behavior is usually related to an improperly set Content-Length: header, or it could be related to a problematic plugin that is part of your WordPress install.
the only plugin I have that relates to my feeds is wp-iPodCatter. I’ve tried disabling this plugin and I’m still having the same problem so I dont think its related to the plugin.
Anyone else having this problem? Any Ideas?
