[Resolved] Timeout / Host not available?

  • I’m getting a host not available error (timeout error?) when doing many things on my blog.

    I’ve been running it successfully for a while now but have only recently come across these errors and am hoping someone here knows why they’re occuring.

    I get the error when publishing posts and editing files with theme editor.

    The strange thing is, the post does publish even though I get this error message. My files do not get edited.

    Thanks for any help.

  • It seems that time out limit set by your webhost is very low. Yu need to ask your hosting provider to get this sorted for you as apache timeout limits give such errors.

    There’s nothing wrong with your wordpress installation.

    Visit Options -> Writing

    Do you have a lot listed under “Update Services”? If so, you might try removing some/all and see if that fixes your issue. If it does, odds are that one of those services is timing out on ya.

    (Note: this would be addressing the time-out on Posting)

    I do indeed have many update services listed as I was testing this out yesterday.

    I’ll have a browse once I get home from work and see if this solves the posting error.

    I shall also speak to my host to see about the Apache timeout issues. I’ll do this after I’ve removed some update services.

    I’ll be back.

    So, it seems that by removing some of the update services solved the timeout errors I was receiving when publishing entries.

    Regarding the apparent time-out when editing my theme though…

    I can edit every file related to my theme… apart from the sidebar template and popup-comments php files. I have checked the privileges of these files and they are all the same CHMOD 777 – read, write execute for all users.

    Any ideas?

    I’ve managed to do my updates by downloading my sidebar.php file, edit it and then upload it again!

    That is the preferred method. The theme editor should only be used in emergencies. php-based editors just are not as reliable.

    Ah, I see. Well, resolved it is.

    Thank you everyone for your help.
