Support » Fixing WordPress » No Apache – IdeaWebServer … what can I do?

  • Hello,

    my hosting provider says that users that have WP 2.x should change in the /wp-includes/vars.php

    $is_apache = ( strstr($_SERVER['SERVER_SOFTWARE'], 'Apache') || strstr($_SERVER['SERVER_SOFTWARE'], 'LiteSpeed') ) ? 1 : 0;

    to

    $is_apache = ( strstr($_SERVER['SERVER_SOFTWARE'], 'Apache') || strstr($_SERVER['SERVER_SOFTWARE'], 'LiteSpeed') || strstr($_SERVER['SERVER_SOFTWARE'], 'IdeaWebServer')) ? 1 : 0;

    In WP 3.2 that line is not in that file.
    What should I do???

    Do not edit core WordPress files. Your hosts should know better than to suggest this. Either they can support WordPress or they can’t. They shouldn’t be getting you to hack core code to cover their hosting shortcomings.

    They even wrote it in their documentation: http://home.pl/dokumentacja/funkcjeserwera/htaccess/modrewrite

    Now I opened a case because RedirectMatch is not working either in the .htaccess… let’s see with what they come out

    Oh great! 🙁

    Is there any chance you could move hosts?

    I was hosted in a USA hosting company. Was excellent, but too slow from Europe.
    I just changed to this company because it’s a well known company and their “limitations” are acceptable.

    There are other companies that support Apache, but are too limited in terms of “system usage time”, and after reaching that limit they ask you for more money.

    Other companies are too expensive. Here in Europe hosting providers are much more expensive than in USA. But of course the response time and pings are much faster.

    Isn’t it possible to add those strings that to the WordPress developing? There is a big number of WordPress @home.pl

    I’m in Europe too. 🙂

    I seriously doubt it. From what I can see, it’s specific to only one large Polish ISP. But I’ll flag this up for one of the core devs to have a look at.

    Thank you esmi… I found this ticket and updated it.
    I hope you can help to push it. It is open more than 2 years…
