i have been happily configuring my wordpress installation (2.2.2) – until yesterday.
i moved its location on the server and the apache information. But this never caused any problems. i.e. Everything went fine, until i deleted my first post.
In the RSS-widget (showing the feed oft he WP-blog) in the sidebar the title oft he deleted post was still visible (i think it reported a broken link).
After a while the RSS feed in the widget showed an error-statement (something like: come back later…) while the RSS feed from the adress line oft he browser ist still working .
I had WP-cache on, so i deactivated and deisntalled it. No success. RSS-widget still not working anymore.
Since then the sidebar has been causing nothing but trouble – or at least: sorrow
- The photoalbums of my WPG2-embedded gallery that i installed afterwars have never appeared in the the sidebar.
- Blogroll has vanished although it had been there in the default template (though it shows up in other themes – sometimes –i assume this depends on the templates)
- Now i installed the simple-tagging-plugin but all links oft he tags just point to a 404 error. (onyl the category-links seem to work)
I deactivated most of my plugins, (i even suspected a link in the stats from the deleted post to haunt the database)
Now i am pretty positive there is something wrong between with my sidebar. Is that a database problem?
What would be the best way to proceed now?
there are far too many variables that could be responsible (i regret as hell not having set-up a new WP from the start instead of re-activating my friend´s under a ne url.)
Sometims changes I did show up immediately on the sidebar – sometimes they used to, but now don´t. sometimes they refuse to show up at all.
Despite the bandwith of possible mistakes, i tried googlng the all the errors – also in the forums. No luck
Does anyone know what i should do now???
I just want it to be working again, i would also be willing to install a new WP on my server.
But how could i make sure i am not re-importing the errors in my system by exporting the data or re-installing the databse?
Please, i´ve tried all i know (browser cache, database „repair“ via phpmyadmin), i would be very thankful for any general hints how to approach this problem.
In case i have to setup a new WP.
Would an „export“ of the databse be better?
Or a copy of db and the files on the server better
After days of configuring i just wouldn´t want to install my whole Wp-system again.
As i am an enthusiastick WP-newbie i would like to ask you WP Professionals what yuo would do:
What woulkd be the best procedure in my case to get rid of my problem…?
i reactivated the rss-widget in case you want a look.
