Support » Fixing WordPress » WordPress “unstable” on my site?! Wierd problem!

  • This is driving me insane, as it only happens SOMETIMES and not always. When I DO get the error, if I continue to hit “Refresh” it will go through after 3 or four tries… WTF?!? Also, sometimes instead of generating an error – I get dropped back to the index, regardless of what the link was that I was following.

    I get a variety of errors – however all are “Failed to open stream” — This is my own server so I full control.

    Warning: main(../wp-config.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /var/www/ on line 5

    Fatal error: main(): Failed opening required ‘../wp-config.php’ (include_path=’.:/usr/share/php:/usr/share/pear’) in /var/www/ on line 5

  • New install?

    New(ish) install – WordPress seemed to run fine for the first week or thereabouts, then I started getting these errors. I have tried to figure out what has changed in that timeframe and I do not know what is different.

    Everything I think of just isn’t cutting it for an intermittent like this. Either back-track to find ‘the’ change, or perhaps delete wp-includes/ and wp-admin/ and re-upload? Apply the 2.0.3 Tuneup plugin too.

    I’ll give the tuneup a shot – If I need to re-upload all of the files I can do that next…

    I don’t understand the intermittent nature either- it’s wierd, it should be b0rked or not b0rked… not sometimes one way, and other times the other 🙁

    Yes. Usually that makes me think of cache issues.

    The Cache is not enabled, although I did *TRY* enabling it and it didn’t help (although it did work). I have since disabled it and also deleted the cache.
