Parts of Dashboard don't work
I need some help please. I’ve been going round and round with my web host (WebIntellects). It’s been one thing after another.
I just added WordPress to one of my sites and I’m having all sorts of trouble in the Dashboard: I can’t edit posts, I can’t create a new post (I can edit a post’s title, but I can’t edit the post itself), I can’t upload media and I can’t delete the background image file via the Dashboard.
Anyway I have two domains from this web host: WebIntellects.
They tell me they are running:
SITE ONE (the site I’m currently trying to use):
PHP 5.2.17 (cli) (built: Jan 7 2011 08:49:48)
mysql Ver 14.12 Distrib 5.0.77
PHP 5.2.12 (cli) (built: Dec 17 2009 22:30:32)
mysql Ver 14.12 Distrib 5.0.90
As I understand it that should be compatible with the latest version of WordPress right?
The requirements to run WordPress:
PHP version 5.2.4 or greater
MySQL version 5.0 or greater
I haven’t worked in SITE TWO for awhile but SITE ONE is currently giving me trouble.
In addition to the problems I listed above, the “Live Preview” theme function doesn’t work. It loads the column on the left but the theme preview itself doesn’t load. It’s just a white screen. The browser display bar says the the page is fully loaded.
I’ve tried this and the other problems on Chrome, Safari and Firefox, on a Mac running Mountain Lion.
All of these are problems within the Dashboard so I can’t post a link so you can see them. The “live” page itself just looks like WordPress when you first install it, but with a specific theme in place.
That led me to wonder if there’s a permissions problem. But I can’t imagine how the permissions could have gotten messed up. I’ve run WordPress before on this web host and not needed to change permissions. And I don’t think the permissions theory explains everything.
Anyone here have a better idea of where I should start troubleshooting?
The problem may just be the web host. I really want to change web hosts but the I only just got back to using WordPress (I just finishing moving to a new city), and I pay my web host via an auto pay set up, that just renewed. So I’m not sure I can move my site to anther host. But I’ve had so much trouble with my web host it may be worth a little extra trouble to be rid of them.
Anyway, thanks for any advice.
