It’s come to this… Mike and I need your help! For some reason WebHost4Life.com is not playing nicely with WordPress… well, not on his account anyway.
I’ve been a paying customer at WebHost4Life.com for quite a while now, and have had relatively little problems. I’ve been so impressed, in fact, that I recommended them to a buddy of mine (the one and only MikeDopp) to replace his 1and1 account. Everything went well in the beginning. Or so we thought. Permalinks only worked when they were set to default, not to “month/day/title” version, and some other “hokey” things. But we pressed forward.
Then things started getting weird. The theme would randomly change back to default, for instance. Weird! Then the site started exhibiting odd behavior, 404-ing here and there. Again, weird.
We opened a trouble-ticket to address these issued on 4/17/2007 6:06:10 PM. Things would be temporarily solved, then wig out again. Weird.
So we cleaned out the entire install, threw up our hands, and “said fine, you install it” to the WebHost4Life techs. They did, and things looked okay. Well, mostly. Now when we go to delete an item it will “turn red and fade out” but then turn back to red and give us and error “1″ or “0″ at the bottom of the posting list.
And in the several minutes that it’s taken to write this post, when the “auto save” or “saving draft” function is called it returns “Error: 78.”
WebHost4Life’s response: That by design, it’s supposed to do that. Strange, my install of WordPress 2.2 also hosted on WebHost4Life hardware behaves differently… it behaves the way it’s supposed to.
WebHost4Life’s technical support wants to shovel this off as a WordPress issue, not their fault, but we’re running the same version of WordPress right here, without problems.
Can any of your WebHost4Life users or WordPress 1337’s offer any advice?
