Support » Fixing WordPress » Posting problems w/ 2.9

  • Don’t know what was done between 2.8.6 and 2.9, but so far, 2.9 has been a headache when it comes to posting anything. I have posts scheduled to go up daily which aren’t being posted. When I write a new post and hit publish, all it does it act like it’s publishing and never refreshes the page. I just tried to add a new post to my site, and it took almost 10 minutes just to publish it.

  • Thank god someone is there with the same problem! The same thing is happening with me and it uses a lot of cpu on the server!

    When i do something related to updating posts the cpu resources get eaten very fast and it creates zombie processes!

    I see processes of
    [php] <defunct>
    in CPU usage when ever i try to update/publish a post! These processes are eating more than 60% cpu and keep popping up one after another!

    BTW, I use PHP5.

    I haven’t published any new posts since upgrading, but I have been trying to edit a few, and it just SPINS. This has given me 503 errors on one server. But I use two different hosts with more or less identical WordPress setups, and they are BOTH taking forever. It seems the bigger the database, the longer it takes. Unfortunately, my database is big because of posts and comments, not something I can reduce the size of.

    This REALLY sucks.

    I’ve got a real huge database too and I got no problems with WP 2.9. Writing new posts, editing older posts and everything else works smootlhy to me (I checked also the resources I’m consuming on my server and it’s just normal). So it seems this is not an issue affecting everyone (just in case this info can help you somehow).


    @vangrog : What version of php do you use?

    I use PHP 5 and MySQL 5.1


    After tracing the process I get this:

    Process 23686 attached – interrupt to quit
    read(3, “.\1\5\”&Records: 5 Duplicat”…, 16384) = 50
    poll([{fd=3, events=POLLIN|POLLPRI}], 1, 0) = 0 (Timeout)
    write(3, “q\3select ID from 1212_yarpp_r”…, 117) = 117
    read(3, “\1\1\1W\2\3def\ranimesho_blog301212″…, 16384) = 114
    poll([{fd=3, events=POLLIN|POLLPRI}], 1, 0) = 0 (Timeout)
    write(3, “5\3select post_content from 12″…, 57) = 57
    read(3, “\1\1\1O\2\3def\ranimesho_blog\n1212″…, 16384) = 258
    poll([{fd=3, events=POLLIN|POLLPRI}], 1, 0) = 0 (Timeout)
    write(3, “3\3select post_title from 1212″…, 55) = 55
    read(3, “\1\1\1K\2\3def\ranimesho_blog\n1212″…, 16384) = 138
    poll([{fd=3, events=POLLIN|POLLPRI}], 1, 0) = 0 (Timeout)
    write(3, “\17\3set names utf8”, 19) = 19
    read(3, “\7\1\2”, 16384) = 11

    and so on!

    I’m having the same issue. Since updating the blog in general is slow as far as the Dashboard stuff is concerned, and publishing posts takes upwards of ten to fifteen minutes.

    I updated a scheduled post slightly, just to see if I was having the same problem. It didn’t take 10-15 minutes but it was longer than usual.

    I’m having a similar problem. Updating or publishing a post just spins and works for a while, maybe 20 seconds, and then brings me to a 404 error. Any suggestions?

    It works fine for me. I downloaded http.php from uploaded it to wp-includes and replaced the old http.php file.

    I don’t know if that file has nothing to do with slow posting, I did all the above because i got this error: Warning: gzuncompress() [function.gzuncompress]: data error in /home/...

    @geetar : That didn’t fix the problem. 🙁

    Culprit found! It was :

    Yet Another Related Posts Plugin

    I upgraded it the the newest version which fixes this problem.

    Since going to 2.9 I can’t post anything. I’ve been screwing with it and can post if I do the following:

    1. Put the post in “Pending Review” in the Status
    2. Change to “Published On” date to something earlier than the current time.

    Then it will post. I have no clue how to set up future posts to launch.

    Seems to be working much better today. Don’t know what the difference is, but things are much better. Now if I could only get my other problem I posted on here about fixed, I’d be all set.

    I can confirm what ulgaming figured out! My problem suddenly disappeared, too, and updating Yet Another Related Posts Plugin was the only change I’d made.
