Updating on the dashboard is critically broken in Ubuntu 14.04 and PHP 5.5.9

I just tried installing Wordpress 3.9 on a newly built Ubuntu 14.04 server which is running PHP 5.5.9-1ubuntu4. I'm using the basic 2014 theme.

I was able to successfully install Wordpress and login to the dashboard. When I try and make any changes like adding or deleting posts, pages or users nothing saves. Wordpress reports the action was completed, however, if I then click on the Post, Pages or Users menu the display is reset and nothing has actually be changed.

If I wait for a few seconds (maybe 10-20 seconds) and then try and refresh the table, some changes will actually go through. If I click save and refresh enough times I'm able to get some actions to take, but the process is messy.

I have verified the database user has all privileges on the database. Wordpress 3.9 works fine on my Ubuntu 13.04 server with PHP 5.4.9-4ubuntu2.4.

This sounds like some kind of a caching issue specific to your configuration, probably similar to the one in your other ticket, #25782.

Until the exact bug is identified and confirmed, I'd suggest trying the support forums for troubleshooting.

I'm trying to track down more information. Server A is using Nginx 1.4.6 and PHP 5.4.9 and server B has PHP 5.5.9 and Nginx 1.6.0. I've installed the website on both servers and it works fine on server A; it's a total mess on server B. I installed PHP using the same package manager command for both servers and both websites use the same Virtual Hosts file to define the website in Nginx.

The bug is either somewhere in the PHP/Wordpress code or my Virtual Hosts file. I'm going to assume it's in my Virtual Hosts file and start looking in that direction.

I think it's safe to close this one. I had originally installed PHP using the php5-cgi package on Ubuntu. I spent some time learning how to use the php5-fpm package and tweaking my Virtual Hosts file and the problem went away.
