Unable to add new content after 2.2.1 upgrade (13 posts)

    When I try to navigate to a page in the admin tool that is used to add content, and only those pages that add content, I get errors like so...

    Safari can’t open the page.
    Safari can’t open the page “http://www.jasoncampbell.com/soup/wp-admin/post-new.php” because the server unexpectedly dropped the connection, which sometimes occurs when the server is busy. You might be able to open the page later.

    When I click to edit an archived post I get an almost blank page that looks like this.

    and I have this message on my comments page at the top of the list...

    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 '' at line 1]
    SELECT post_author FROM wp_posts WHERE ID =

    any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks.

    I'd guess theirs a plugin interfering. Disable them all and enable one at a time.

    Thank you for your response but plugins are not part of the issue, I do not have any enabled.

    Did you get any errors when you ran the upgrade.php ? It's almost sounds like a DB that doesn't match what the wordpress wants?

    You might find something useful in the error log (and I don't know where your host keeps it, but it worth ask them)

    I didn't get any errors, and if I go there now it says its all good.
    Should I revert? Is that even possible, I mean are there downloads for past versions available? I guess I should go check.

    2.2.1 works or can be made to work. Downgrading is the wrong thing to do, IMO, if you can get it write it doesn't fix the problem for you or anybody else.

    Most of your site seems accessable (I'm using Safari 2.x), No wild "Can't connect messages" on Categories and Archives and the links within them. It's only the front page (so far) that putting out the 404's, and even that problem is different from "can't connect"

    What's your .htaccess look like? Pick the default/ugly permalinks for a few minutes and see if those 404's go away

    ccoupe thanks for you help it's greatly appreciated.

    my .htaccess file looks like this right now...

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

    # END WordPress

    I switched to default links, but that had no affect on my ability to use the control panel to add or edit posts.

    I am desperate to resolve the issue, any further suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks so much,

    J.

    This might seem silly - did you delete the files on your server before installing the upgraded version? If not that can royally mess things up.

    Even if you did perhaps reinstalling it might help, before you attempt to downgrade. You know, the age old solution - if you can't find the problem just reboot.

    It is a clean install.

    I've done the re-install a couple of times and probably will try again.

    Thank you though for writing.
