I while ago, I installed WordPress to my server and customized it to my taste. Because I am going to use the weblog as my travel diary, I haven't used it a lot yet.
Tomorrow my journey starts so today I wanted to test my WordPress weblog once more. I have posted a new blog post which worked just perfectly. WordPress wanted me to upgrade to 2.8.4 (was 2.8.2 I guess) so I did (automatically. Worked also like a charm.
Now I discovered two problems:
- I use the WPG2 plugin to connect my Gallery2 to WordPress. WPG2 creates a dummy page (under Pages) which is used to redirect the requests to the plugin I guess. Now out of a sudden another page also includes the Gallery2 and my original text isn't showing up. When I edit the page in the administration panel, my text shows up. However, when I want to Publish..
- I can't publish pages anymore. Publishing a blog post works just fine but when I want to publish a page, my browser is keeps loading but doesn't show anything. At the same time, my server load gets extremely high (60.00+) because Apache2 spawns about 10 processes which all produce maximum CPU load, and MySQL also shows up in the top CPU time consuming processes. The only solution is to shut down Apache, wait until all child processes are killed and restart Apache.
I tried downgrading to WordPress 2.8.2 but that didn't help one bit. Also I have updated my server with the latest version of Apache but that also didn't work out.
It seems like something is messed up somewhere (maybe caused by WPG2? But it did work well before..) but I don't know where to look. And I'm leaving on my trip tomorrow..
Versions of server software I use:
OS: Ubuntu 8.04 hardy
Thank you very much in advance!!
