Support » Fixing WordPress » WordPress hangs with longer posts

  • Hi there,

    I’m not sure if anyone has had this problem but I am running WordPress 2.7 on my server and it seems to work fine, except sometimes when my posts get longer than around 1000 words, I start to have random timeout errors when I click “update”, it just goes to a white/blank screen in firefox or IE says “Internet explorer cannot display this webpage”. Does anyone have any advice as to what I should do? When I get this timeout error, I can copy+paste paragraphs I have already typed and it will update fine, but not when I type what I originally wanted to :S strange..

  • Is it because there is too much data for the server to process? How can I check ?

    It may be your SQL database being overloaded. Or it may be that you have too many ping sites listed.

    Oh ok, do you know how I can check this. My blog is not huge by any means.. but I haven’t really touched anything in my SQL database apart fom create a database to set wordpress up on it. Do I need to get to it through Cpanel and change something?

    Cheers for your reply.

    The status bar at the bottom just stays at “Waiting for” for about 10 seconds before the whole page goes blank and the address bar is “”
    Usually when I update a post and it’s working properly the status bar will flicker betweeen waiting for “” and “Connected to..” and “transferring..” etc, but not when it hangs…
