  • SFC plugin was being modified to accept avatars in the custom portions of the site. Upon customization, a blank screen appeared. The custom file was restored, however, the blank screen persisted

    the log file showed this message:
    [error] [client] ALERT – configured request variable name length limit exceeded – dropped variable ‘glt_2_JbzUBctP7_YMUY-htPvFIQOjxKcilVdEZ5g_3PRS5s9_3E5ZyFt1z_Z2gd8XNUba’ (attacker ‘’, file ‘/home/103018/domains/’

    added php.ini:
    ; We highly recommend that you leave this options enabled

    ; Increase maximum post size
    upload_max_filesize = 32M
    post_max_size = 32M

    ; Increase execution time
    max_execution_time = 300

    ; pull in EGPCS [Environment, GET, POST, Cookie, Server] variables as globals
    ;register_globals = true

    ; For performance reasons, (mt) does not load all of the modules that are available
    ; into PHP. You may uncomment any one of the following “extension” lines to enable
    ; the desired module

    ; Salblotron XSLT

    ; save in local tmp

    * on a shared server so therefore I cannot make apache or other php changes. I cannot overwrite any defaults in php.ini for web hosting provider.
    * disabled plugins then site came up
    * reenable plugins then site stayed up
    * now I can register through regular wp system (not Simple Facebook Connect)
    * login takes me to a 404 error and unable to access anything but the headway editor.
    * tried replacing theme to access admin section – did not work
    * user can comment and view posts but cannot post.
    * that’s where things stand.
    * areas of possibility – .htaccess, database corruption (did not see any corruption in user tables), and permalinks not set right in .htaccess

    Can anyone assist me in solving this issue?
