Problem description: I already had php, mysql and apache running smoothly before installing wordpress. I installed wordpress, edited the default post and all was well. It was up and running. When I got home and my client was linux / firefox I was able to navigate the pages of my blog but I was not able to post a new entry, ie use /wp-admin/post-new.php. It would start to load the page and hang for as long as was allowed. Even during this time I could log in and go to the same page and post a new post in a windows client while linux was waiting for something. It seemed as though something hated baby linux. :P Windows did not have a problem.
Known software effected
All linux based, FireFox 1.5, FireFox 2.0, FireFox 3 Beta 3, Opera/9.25
Things I did to try to figure out what the problem was:
Initiated packet logging on the linux client then sent the request to the server for /wp-admin/post-new.php
last packet sent was
GET /wordpress/wp-includes/js/jquery/interface.js??ver=1.2 HTTP/1.1
Tested same software packages on another server (win 2003 corp) with all other factors being the same and was able to reproduce the problem by attempting to post-new.php with a linux/ff client.
Workaround identified (Firefox/linux):
Steps to reproduce
- Be on a linux / firefox or opera machine.
- Clear your cache
- Visit a Wordpress 2.3.3 admin site and attempt to write a new post.
- visit the new-post.php and allow the editor to load.
