Support » Fixing WordPress » WordPress 2.0.6: Feedburner issue, and fix

  • These words for the WordPress Guru, Mark Jaquith:

    Despite two release candidates and several weeks of availability for testing, a bug sneaked into WordPress 2.0.6 that affects the serving of 304 Not Modified feeds. It’s actually related to the Server 500 error issue that 2.0.5 had (and 2.0.6 fixes)… it just affects a different set of people.

    See Mark’s post and fix: WordPress 2.0.6 Feedburner issue and fix

    The fix is to comment-out lines 2231,2233,2234 in wp-includes/functions.php. Please note that 2232 is left alone. The four lines 2231-2234 should look like this:

    // if ( substr(php_sapi_name(), 0, 3) == 'cgi' )
    @header("HTTP/1.1 $header $text");
    // else
    // @header("Status: $header $text");

    you mean wp-includes/functions.php

    it works, btw, I hadnt even checked to see if my feeds were working. They were blank until I made a new post.

    Thanks for the excellent follow-up whooami. I’ve fixed my comment above.



    Another (alternative) workaround and more info on this bug is available at The NeoSmart Files:
