Support » Fixing WordPress » Response body too large

  • Anytime I try to post it sends me back to the homepage. Viewing the error logs I find “Output filter: Response body too large (over limit of 5221440, total not specified)”. That’s insane! 5MBs for a response body? What would cause my WordPress to do that? Do I need to empty a database table or something? Do I have a trojan?

    It might help the volunteers if you offered a link to your WordPress installation.

    Well I sure as heck won’t be clicking on a possibly infected site. 🙂

    Did you view your databases in PHPMyAdmin. It gives file sizes for each table.

    A 5MB response body is ludicrous.

    Version 2.9.2
    No plugins installed, I removed them all but this still occurs.

    Nothing stands out but:
    wp_options – 942.1 KiB
    wp_postmeta – 444.8 KiB

    Everything else is relatively small table wise in the database.

    A 5MB response body is ludicrous.

    I agree. Did you see my earlier response to you?

    I am not sure what that would accomplish. Is there a method to enabling debugging or logging? What areas can I look for the problem?

    Well, a volunteer here could use that link with some common browser tools to have a look at the response and, just perhaps, see something there that would help you out. By seeing your site we could customize what follows below.

    In lieu of that, you might try the common trouble-shooting tasks.
    Disable all plugins and set the theme back to Default. Does the problem still exist? If not, enable plugins one by one, testing after each. If you make it through the plugins, then try re-enabling your theme and test some more.

    There are a variety of testing addins for Firefox and Chrome, you’ll likely want some so that you can inspect what’s going on more closely.

    Best of luck and let us know what you find.

    I am showing a flood of the following in the error_log:

    `[22-Apr-2010 00:47:59] WordPress database error You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near ‘.85.85’ at line 1 for query UPDATE wp_jronline SET time=1271911679 WHERE made by require, require_once, include, get_header, do_action, call_user_func_array, online_set_cookie

    What would cause that?

    Well, it would be caused by an error but you can figure that from the error message 😉

    Are you running a plugin named something like “JRONLINE”? Some sort of who’s online type thing maybe? Try disabling it — i clearly is having issues.

    I deleted all plugins previously. Why would it still be looking for it though?

    Next place to look would be your theme. Perhaps it has a functions.php file with this online tracking thingy? Try (temporarily) switching your theme to Default and see if the issue persists.

    If that’s not it, then with the info you’re provided I would have to call myself stumped.

    It was moved back to the default theme and that appears to be gone now.

    Hmmm, after clicking post in the admin area it would go to /blog/wp-admin/post-new.php but show the contents of the homepage @ /? Checking error logs its because the message body is over 5MBs. I deleted all plugins, attachments, and move to the default theme and it still occurs.

    I have located the issue. Either something in the wp_postmeta table was corrupt, or the table was simply too large. Emptying the table has corrected the message body too large issue.
