Happy Holidays everyone.
I am having some issues with the Write Post. First of all let me give you my server specifics. I host my own server with this setup:
Windows XP Pro
Apache HTTP Server 2.0.52
MySQL 5.0.17-nt via TCP/IP
PHP version: 5.1.1
phpMyAdmin 2.7.0 pl2
Firefox 2.0 and now 18.104.22.168 as of last night's upgrade.
When I go to the Write Post tab in the admin area I will fill out everything like normal; title, content of post, and so forth. My problem occurs when I am ready to do a submit button action be it; save and continue, or save, or publish. When I click either of these buttons the content area of the post gets wiped clean as if it got deleted. Then my tab in Firefox gets stuck or *hangs* on me.
Please refer to these screenshots on Flickr:
Figure1: A post ready for publishing
Figure2: Post content blanks out
As you can see from the screenshot in Figure2: the progress bar continuously stays busy as if waiting for a page that just refuses to load.
At this point one of two things happen. It either:
1. *finally* completes on it's own or after I hit the reload button several times or I hit the F5 button several times.
2. it times out on me giving me a WP script error
In either of those two cases one thing is constant, it waits until the ABSOLUTE laste minute to do anything. According to the script error the timeout limit is 30 seconds, so either it hits the 30 seconds mark and times out or at the 29-30 seconds mark (whether I reloaded/F5 or not) it completes it's action.
If it completes the action I all I get for my troubles was a blank tab. See Figure3:
Figure3: Blank Tab after successful publish
If I time out I get this script error. See Figure4:
Figure4: Submit process times out
What I don't understand is I never had this problem before and my thinking is, it should be near instantaneous in completing the submit process as it used to be, especially since I am hosting my own server and not having to upload anything.
Any ideas what can be causing this and possibly what I may do to rectify this issue? Your help is most appreciated thank you.
Here is the front page of my Flickr I use for hosting images I post to forums.
Thank you for any consideration you can give me and my problem and have a wonderful holiday season.
