Warnings after post/page save

Reported by: Viper007Bond Owned by:
Milestone: 2.8.1 Priority: normal
Severity: blocker Version: 2.8
Component: Autosave Keywords: has-patch needs-testing
Focuses: Cc:


Inside the autosave box and after I save/publish a post or page, I get the following:

Warning: fopen(/var/www/hosted/finalgear.com/htdocs/.htaccess) [function.fopen]: failed to open stream: Operation not permitted in /var/www/hosted/finalgear.com/htdocs/wordpress/wp-admin/includes/misc.php on line 75

Warning: fwrite(): supplied argument is not a valid stream resource in /var/www/hosted/finalgear.com/htdocs/wordpress/wp-admin/includes/misc.php on line 84

The second error message is repeated a few dozen times. Looks like it's trying to write to the .htaccess file every single time something is saved (which doesn't make sense).

Regardless, attached patch should silence the errors.

  • Milestone changed from Future Release to 2.8.1

#2 @Denis-de-Bernardy

Rather than silencing it, we'd better nail down why it's writing it so many times.

The warning comes on IIS or apache?

posting the IRC logs for reference:

I think there are two issues
1:31 AM Viper007Bond
there are
1:31 AM ddebernardy
one is we don't check that it's writable
1:31 AM Viper007Bond
(it is)
1:31 AM ddebernardy
the is_writable check is different for IIS and apache, but we can manage that
1:31 AM Viper007Bond
i'm on apache
1:31 AM
the file is 777
1:31 AM ddebernardy
the other is that we're trying to do this a dozen times, and that definitely isn't normal
1:32 AM Viper007Bond
one write per line or something
1:32 AM
foreach ( $markerdata as $n => $markerline ) {
1:32 AM
oh, wait, maybe not
1:32 AM
1:33 AM ddebernardy
nah, I'd think it's related to do_action(save_post) et al being called multiple times (once per post, and once per autosave, and once per revision, etc, and possibly more than once each
1:33 AM Viper007Bond
save_mod_rewrite_rules() is getting called too often
1:34 AM
infact it doesn't even need to be called at all when you save a post
1:34 AM
not since like 2.0.x
1:34 AM ddebernardy
it used to, when the rules were all in the htaccess file
1:34 AM Viper007Bond
1:34 AM ddebernardy
but indeed, now they don't, we merely need to update the option thingy
1:35 AM
even then, though, we need to make sure it only ever gets called once when needed

#5 @Denis-de-Bernardy

  • Keywords needs-patch added; has-patch removed
1:45 AM rboren
We need a soft flush_rules() for use on page updates.
1:45 AM rboren
No writing to .htaccess unles verbose page rules are on.

Untested patch adds hard and soft flushing.

#7 @Denis-de-Bernardy
9 years ago

  • Keywords has-patch needs-testing added; needs-patch removed

Haven't tested, but the logic seems correct. The other flush_rules need to be hard indeed. Had a doubt on the one for import, but seemed right too on second though.

#8 @ryan
9 years ago

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

(In [11579]) Don't write to htaccess every time page is saved. Add hard/soft flush flag to flush_rules(). Make sure fopen is successful and silence errors. Props Viper007Bond. fixes #10181 for 2.8.1
