Werid behaviour in WordPress?

    Hi everyone,

    Has anybody experience weird things from WordPress out of the blue?

    I was having this problem since yesterday. I couldn't seem to publish a new page for a particular article, it keeps bringing me to the 404 error page. I tried to find out what was the cause. After test publishing paragraph by paragraph, sentence by sentence till word by word. I found out that the word "from" in the article content that is causing me the 404 error. However, when I scan through my already published articles, there are indeed the word "from" which had pull through the error! :confused:

    This is really weird! I don't remember doing anything else prior to this weird happening, well except for installing WP Database Backup and Adsense Deluxe plugins. But Adsense Deluxe isn't working correctly too, whenever I click on the "Add Adsense Block" I'm brought out of the admin area and onto the 404 error page.

    Do you guys have this experience too? Any advise to solve this weird 404 error? I've uninstall the Adsense Deluxe plugin but still the publish page error remain. It will be quite a pain in the neck to not include the word "from" in the article content. Thanks! :eek:

    try de-activating them plugins one by one and see if that fixes it.

    if not it could be a .htaccess problem.

    Yep, every so often something bizarro happens with Wordpress to me. The weirdest ever was when it switched the post titles of 2 of my posts, the one I had just published and the day before. I kept editing them back to how they were supposed to be and they still were wonky and then sorted themselves out.

    Seriously...can't figure that one out!

    bleh, just turn off mod_security for the wp-admin area:

    IF YOU DO NOT HAVE an .htaccess in your wp-admin/ directory:

    create a text file on your desktop:

    put the following inside it:

    <IfModule mod_security.c>
    SecFilterInheritance Off
    </IfModule>

    save the file.

    Upload the file to your wp-admin directory.

    Rename the uploaded file to .htaccess (with the .)

    IF YOU DO HAVE an .htaccess in your wp-admin/ directory:

    Edit it:

    <IfModule mod_security.c>
    SecFilterInheritance Off
    </IfModule>

    save the new .htaccess

    I hope the above helps.

    Thanks guys, I have manage to solve this problem after hours of scouring for the solution.

    I've added the below to my .htaccess and it's working fine now.

    SecFilterEngine Off
    SecFilterScanPOST Off

    Hope this helps anyone who faces this problem too. :)

    Wordpress 2.3.1 is most error prone since its table structure is completely different from the previous versions...and most wordpress themes are not compatible yet. Hence it always gives database error when you press publish..only solution for that problem is getting a compatible theme and plugins (plugins like ultimate tag warrior are completely in conflict with wp 2.3.1!)

    Speaking of that...wordpress released version 2.3.2 a few hours ago

    Two questions:

    1. Turning off mod_security on the face of it seems like a bad idea. Why is this necessary and under what conditions?

    2. If you do turn off mod_security in this way, would that not create vulnerabilities in your installation?
