Support » Fixing WordPress » weird unhelpful error message

  • I just upgraded my wordpress from pre-2.0 to 2.3.
    And most things seem okay, but there are a couple issues.
    Firstly, one of my posts (just one so far) seems to be missing the little comments link (you know, the one that says “no comments” or “2 comments” or whatever).
    Secondly, when I try to edit old posts it gives me this error:
    Something went wrong – -32300 : transport error – HTTP status code was not 200
    Usually I can figure this stuff out on my own, but this warning is just too vague. I can’t figure out what it means.

  • Did you upgrade in “steps” – that is, from 1.22 (or whatever) to 1.5, then to 2.0+? If not, the database may not have got itself into proper shape.

    Straight from 1.5 (I think) to the latest incarnation (2.3, is it now?).
    How would one get their database back into shape?

    Okay, if you started with 1.5, then there shouldn’t be a problem. For some reason the way you phrased your post I thought earlier than 1.5.

    So your database shouldn’t be problematic. And in fact, I’ve done a dozen or so 1.5+ to 2.0.3 upgrades just in the last week or so, and haven’t seen the error (and yes, TRULY unhelpful!) you describe.

    But that error…. that’s almost more like a host notification error. Have you thought to ask your host support about it just in case?

    Out of curiousity (and desire for learning) this is what I always do with error messages:

    The results (almost) always can point you to:
    – the server/host
    – the script or
    – whatever is to blame 🙂

    Yeah, I already did that, but all I could figure out is that a 200 means everything’s ok, so the code not being 200 would mean that everything’s NOT ok. Real helpful.
    Although last time I googled I didn’t notice the WordPress links for some reason.
    Could this problem be caused by not deleting files properly?
    Ugh, I don’t want to go through the whole upload process again.

    I totally just figured out what this is.
    My Livejournal crossposter Plugin is definitely not compatable with the new upgrade.
    Wow. I’m glad that’s such a simple fix.
