Trackbacks: manual WP install vs. Fantastico
Trackbacks don’t work in my blog … the blog that *I* installed, that is.
I resell hosting and naturally host my own site on the same server. When I transferred my old site to the new server, I just directly copied the WordPress files and changes the settings appropriately. Everything works except the outgoing trackbacks. I’ve been all through this forum and have verified that everything on my server is as it should be.
Through my site’s Cpanel, I can use Fantastico to install WordPress. Now here’s the crazy thing. The Fantastico installation’s TrackBacks WORK, but my manual installlation DOESN’T!
Thinking maybe a file was corrupt, I only changed the Fantastico installation to point to my normal database rather than the one that it created. This one and only small change “broke” trackbacks.
My theory is that there is SOMETHING in the MySQL database that is preventing my manual installation’s trackbacks from working and something different in the Fatastico installations DB that allows its trackbacks to work.
Incoming trackbacks work perfectly, but the outgoing do not work on only the manual installation.
Crazy? YOU BET!
