WordPress timing out on you when you edit a menu…

cPanel, WordPress

if you edit a menu and get a 500 or 404 and also see something like max_input_vars limit too low.

edit your php.ini and adjust or add

max_input_vars = 5000

then restart Apache.

Oh yeah this is due to the limit on menu items php imposes on wp.

Other factors round this issue were a messy htaccess file and also permalinks, so check that too.


Spam is a fact of modern life, so here are some blacklist lookup sites, i hope to post a little bit more on this to give a more rounded view.

mx toolboox is just a fab site

I like this place it helps me

hey, it’s spamhaus, thanks spamhaus

freeeeeeze, it’s spam cop, spam cop is our chum 🙂

i only use this a bit, it’s pretty neat.

can’t forget these folks

cpanel, horde, Login failed because your username or password was entered incorrectly.

When trying to access Horde it shows an error below when you click on Log In. Even if you use the correct login details it does not allows you to enter.

‘Message Login failed because your username or password was entered incorrectly.’

This is because due to incorrect permissions on the files & directories on etc & mail directory under the account. Login to your server via SSH & execute commands below.


Once the updates are completed, try accessing the Horde. It should allow you to enter.

Plesk, Windows, Persits aint installed no more, pah, no wait it is, what?

Now and again an update can knacker the perms on Persits dll’s.

Check user perms for psaadm and psacln have read & execute on the actual dll file

usually here

C:\Program Files (x86)\Persits Software\Asp….

(This can also relate to the registry losing it;s mind too but thats a different thing, re reg .dll)
