Problem: After updating the blog to WP 2.9 everything was running smooth. But when opening some of the plugin setting pages the server responded with a “500 Internal Server Error” – especially when using plugins like “XML Sitemap Generator for WordPress” . After a while I found out I can’t even login to my admin panel.
Diagnosis: PHP is running out of memory.
Solution: If you are running your own root, dedicated or virtual server this is an easy bugfix: You just have to change the php.ini of your server and provide more memory to your PHP installation. On a shared hosting server – like at the webhosting solutions at 1and1 you often don’t have access to that central php.ini. But there is an easy workaround:
Create a text file and name it “php.ini” (without the quotes) and with a single line of code in it:
I had to post this tutorial, I couldn’t help it, this is so useful, and so simple.
The following tutorial explains how to quickly
upgrade WordPress to a newer version. The process is fairly straightforward and simple, however, I have frequently caught people including myself being lazy on an upgrade skipping important steps of the process. I feel it’s important to perform a manual
WordPress upgrade and not auto upgrade using a utility like fantastico. While fantastico is an awesome tool for installing web applications, it has it’s flaws when performing upgrades. It’s better to avoid the potential headache.
How to manually
- Perform a complete backup of both your database and directory structure (in case something goes wrong)
- Login to your
WordPress administration panel and deactivate all active plugins
- Download and extract the latest STABLE WordPresss version to a folder on your computer
I like to give an analogy of a car (cars = themes, bear with me). When building a new car, everything isn’t reinvented. Your not going to find innovation in tires or in a steering wheel from the new Dodge Grand Caravan. Instead, you’d probably find innovation through the features it sports. What results, is a lot of cars using the same parts. So can WordPress themes. It’s all about being more efficient in your craft. Factor out all the essential theme parts and use them as the bases for the framework. In doing this, you’ll dramatically speed up the time it takes to build recurring themes from scratch.
Theme Hybrid themes are created with a lot of special care. Hours upon hours of testing, debugging, and planning are put into each theme. Feel free to browse around and choose one to use for free.
