I haven’t manage to get rid of the unknown bot that consumes the server’s bandwidth, but nobody has managed to hack my website either.
I have though another serious problem. I get white screen of death whenever I’m trying to publish a new post.
I got this problem last night after I tried to update a permalink on an existing post.
Whatever attempts I made after this to post something had the same result.
I removed a anti spam plugin in case this was causing the problem and I also used my backup in order to restore the database in case that this was the problem.
Pay attention now.
After the restore of the datbase I lost a blog post and I had to reupload it along with this images. This worked. The post was published normally.
When I tried to post the post that I was trying to edit yesterday I got for one more time the same white screen.
I thought that the problem was caused by some problem on the images of this post. So I got into the cpanel and I removed all the images, the old and the reuploaded new ones and I replaced them with other images that were edited and resized and renamed and without any metadata.
Same results. The white screen.
It seems that CP doesn’t want me to post this particular article.
Now my installation was updated at some unknown to me time and I know that because I got in the general settings screen the option that allows you to have a custom logo in the login screen.
I hadn’t post anything on my blog prior to this small update.
Is there any chance that the white screen is a result of the update and not of a corrupted database ( that I restored it after all from the backup) and not from the images ( that I replaced them after deleting the old and the older ones).
I don’t have any new plugin now running on my website other than those that I had previously and I can’t find any errors on the cpanel neither on the database and nor on the database server.
No errors anywhere but then I get the same white screen as soon as I click on the publish button.
It seems like it can’t save this particular post. This post has 1720 words. Is it perhaps a matter of the size of the post?
