I am building a site on WordPress. I can't publish posts: when I attempt to do so, the site just hangs and then I get a time out page.

However, I can add new pages without a problem.

I have tried:

  • Upgrading the WP build.
  • Switching my theme to Twenty Ten. I still cannot publish posts.
  • Deleting all plugins and the plugin folder.

None of this has resolved the issue. Should I contact my host or is this a WP issue?

Thank you for any help, Jeff

Considering all the content generated by WordPress websites, it seems rather far-fetched that this would be a WordPress problem. I'd contact your host.

Hi John, Thanks for the suggestion, I did just that and it turned out to be a host-related error writing to the database. –  Jeff Tancil Apr 28 '11 at 13:57
