WordPress 2.8

SHARE this post!

Well I am slowly upgrading all of my sites to WordPress 2.8 and damn it seems good. One big site that I have was having trouble though. I was getting 500 internal server error after doing an upgrade on a rather large blog and this is what I now do to troubleshoot all WordPress errors.

1. Rename the /wp-content/plugins folder to plugins2 this will disable all plugins since the system will not find them

2. If this works and my blog works (It was kinda better but still slow and partially broke) then you can copy that folder to a drive on your machine and then delete all the plugins in that plugins2 folder, delete all the plugins, rename the folder back to plugins, and then add one at a time and see if everything is good. This can help you troubleshoot a bad or memory intensive plugin.

3. Inm my case I found that the blog was still sluggish so I used that hack for getting PHP 5 to work on 1 and 1 internet. I added AddType x-mapp-php5 .php as a line in my .htaccess and this fixed the 500 internal server errors.

Does this work for you? Do you like the new WordPress? Here are the main new features:

That is a crapload of change. The interface though is very similar to 2.7 though which is nice. There are also apparently 100s of bug fixes as well and everyhting just feels more stable.

  1. I am really loving the theme/design of your blog. Do you ever run into any web
    browser compatibility problems? A couple of my blog readers have complained about my website
    not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Firefox.
    Do you have any suggestions to help fix this issue?

  2. Hello there! This is my first comment here so I just
    wanted to give a quick shout out and tell you I truly enjoy reading through your articles.
    Can you recommend any other blogs/websites/forums that go over the same topics?
    Thank you!

  3. Can I simply say what a relief to find someone that really understands what they’re talking about on the net.

    You certainly know how to bring an issue to light and
    make it important. More and more people really need to read this and understand this
    side of the story. I was surprised that you’re not
    more popular given that you certainly have the gift.

  4. Awesome blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere?

    A theme like yours with a few simple tweeks would really make my blog shine.
    Please let me know where you got your design.
    Many thanks

  5. This design is steller! You obviously know how to keep a reader amused.
    Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Fantastic
    job. I really loved what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.
    Too cool!

  6. You can definitely see your expertise within the article you write.
    The arena hopes for more passionate writers like you who aren’t afraid to say how they believe.
    At all times go after your heart.
